Gallowgate Flags are asking for your help.

As they prepare for their biggest ever pre-match display so far, they need at least 100 more Newcastle fans to lend a hand.

Contact information is below if you’d like to help, as well as information on exactly what supporters can look forward to before the kick-off against Liverpool.

Newcastle United announcement:

Supporters behind the hugely successful Gallowgate Flags movement are set to roll out their biggest ever display at St James Park this Sunday – if they can get help from fellow fans.

The display will be seen by the eyes of the world on Sunday afternoon, with Newcastle United v Liverpool being broadcast live on Sky Sports in the UK and by international rights holders across more than 200 territories globally.

The group is looking for around 100 supporters to give up a short amount of time before the match to help them with preparations for the display, which will feature four giant surfer flags and potentially hundreds of smaller hand-held flags.

There will also be the introduction of a huge hand-painted flag across the Gallowgate End, which the group is keeping under wraps until just before kick-off.

Supporters are asked not to move the flags once they have entered the stadium. Once used, flags should be stored beneath seats and left there for the group to collect after the match.

How you can help

To volunteer before the match, supporters can head to the area between the glass atrium and the players’ entrance (beneath the Milburn Stand) at midday on Sunday.

Alternatively, supporters can meet representatives of the group next to the Chicago Town Pizza stand at Access 11 in the Gallowgate End for a position or a flag.

    Looks lovely,but it’s not really any help if we don’t make any noise during the game ?

      Maybe artificial atmosphere through the PA system would add to the match day experience…. you know ‘oooh and aah’ for near misses and a few songs to gee up the team.

        Seems a step backwards when we used to be quite capable of making enough noise on our own to gee up the team and intimidate the opposition. I don’t think they can be trusted either, after that ridiculous drum n bass version of Blaydon Races that was tried we’d probably finish up with Agadoo !!

    Does anyone know, are there any plans for doing a FFS flag?

    Probably get blocked by the stewards as a health and safety problem. Better to raise the roof with the singing and chants which will be appreciated by the people watching the game on the box,
