5 years ago

Huddersfield have confirmed that the game on Saturday against Newcastle is now completely sold out.

The official club announcement said that the final home tickets had now gone and over twenty three thousand will be inside the John Smith’s Stadium, beating the previous record for a league match set earlier this season, for the Yorkshire derby against Leeds United.

Newcastle United received a feeble 1,900 away tickets but you don’t quite so much when at least the home fans buy up the rest, unlike certain other clubs…

Speaking of Aston Villa, they also got an honourable mention in the announcement revealing the record crowd v Newcastle.

The club amusingly saying to Huddersfield fans who are missing out on the biggest game of their season:

‘Don’t worry’, as plenty of  ‘Aston Villa tickets are still available!’

Huddersfield play Villa on Tuesday night but it sounds like punters have voted with their feet…

‘Over 23,000 people will attend the match at the John Smith’s Stadium

–    Home tickets for Town’s match against Newcastle United has sold out

–    Huddersfield Town will achieve record league gate this weekend
