Newcastle United spark biggest crowds of season in 7 of 10 away matches

5 years ago

Newcastle United fans have bought every away ticket put on sale this season.

The 10 Championship away matches plus the League Cup one at Hull City, have all seen the away end/section full.

Burton tickets have already gone and on Tuesday morning NUFC confirmed that both Wigan and Blackburn would shortly be sold out.

It hasn’t just been Newcastle supporters boosting the attendances on the road, with the home fans also turning out in the hope of seeing United turned over.

In fact, in seven of Newcastle’s 10 away league games, the host club have had their biggest gate of the season (as of today – 6 Dec 2016).

The stats have been put together by Coral and another factor to bear in mind that seven of the 10 NUFC away games, were not at 3pm on a Saturday afternoon.

The three exceptions are as marked, with Villa, Derby and Forest the odd ones out.

Newcastle away match crowds (then host club’s average this season):

Fulham 23,922 v Newcastle (average 18,844)

Bristol City 22,512 v Newcastle (19,983)

Derby County 30,405 v Newcastle (28,835) Derby v Villa 31,205

QPR 17,404 v Newcastle (15,117)

Aston Villa v Newcastle 32,062 (31,886) Villa v Huddersfield 34,924

Rotherham v Newcastle 11,653 (9.659)

Barnsley v Newcastle 18,597 (13,896)

Preston v Newcastle 20,724 (13,303)

Leeds v Newcastle 36,002 (25,122)

Forest v Newcastle 21,317 (19,407) Forest v Burton 23,012
