Newcastle United reveal they sold out season tickets
Newcastle United sold out of season tickets this summer.
This has been revealed on Wednesday morning as the club announce Manchester City home tickets are set to go on sale.
NUFC say that the number of season tickets sold for this season reached a level where no more could be sold.
This is due to an obligation to provide tickets for fans buying match to match.
Usually at this time of year you have half season tickets going on sale, with many fans taking up the chance as Christmas presents.
However, with the number of season tickets sold this summer, it means this time there will be no half season ones available.
Newcastle United official announcement:
Tickets for Newcastle United’s home Premier League fixture with Manchester City will go on sale to members from 10am on Thursday 30th November, the club has confirmed.
Pep Guardiola’s table-topping City side will visit St. James’ Park on Wednesday 27th December (kick-off 7:45pm GMT) for a festive fixture that will be shown live on Sky Sports.
With high demand anticipated, tickets are highly unlikely to reach general sale, meaning the only way to secure a match ticket for this fixture will be via the members’ priority period.
Due to the incredible support of Magpies fans, who committed to season tickets in huge numbers over summer 2017, half-season tickets will not be made available this winter.
Lee Charnley, Newcastle United’s managing director, said:
“Our fantastic fans ensured season ticket numbers reached almost 40,000 this summer.
“We made a decision to cap season tickets at this level, to ensure we could still make a fair proportion of tickets available to supporters on a match by match basis.”
