Hunger for away tickets continues – Newcastle fans get third allocation for Wolves
The initial allocation of around 2,500 away tickets for Wolves v Newcastle were all snapped up straight away.
The hunger of Newcastle fans for away fixtures still wasn’t satisfied, so Wolves handed NUFC another 850 on Tuesday.
They have all been hoovered up and so now a third ticket allocation has been made available.
Wolves sending another 800 tickets for Newcastle supporters and these are now on sale to season ticket holders and members.
The game is two weeks on Saturday (Saturday 11 February) and live on Sky Sports with a teatime (5.30pm) kick-off, with the team now set to have the backing of around 4,200 fans.
It will of course also be the first time the two teams will meet after the five game suspension Jonjo Shelvey recently served, following an incident during the game at St James Park.
Interesting to see how the Wolves players and crowd react to the rematch with the Newcastle playmaker, plus of course most importantly, how Jonjo Shelvey himself handles the situation.
The biggest Championship crowd at Molineux this season was 27,293 when Sheffield Wednesday visited.
A bit of a surprise that they didn’t get close to the capacity (listed as 31,700 by various online stadium guides) for their last home game. A 1-0 win over Aston Villa being watched by 27,255.
