Huddersfield v Newcastle tickets info released – Premier League rules keep prices down & allocation up
The Huddersfield v Newcastle tickets will go on sale on Monday.
The match is United’s first away game of the season and is in 33 days time, moved to Sunday 20 August for live TV.
Initially, only those with 100 loyalty points or more can get tickets on Monday, though that will fall in the following days.
Two bits of good news though thanks to a return to the Premier League.
Last season Newcastle fans got less than two thousand tickets for Huddersfield but due to Premier League rules, away fans are now allocated 2,340 seats.
Another Premier League rule that will ease things slightly for away fans, is that an upper price limit of £30 is now in place for travelling supporters for any game, Huddersfield electing to charge the maximum they are allowed to charge Newcastle fans, the full £30.
The Football Supporters Federation have campaigned for a £20 (twenty’s plenty) maximum for away supporters and the current £30 limit is a step in the right direction.
