The Tottenham v Newcastle tickets for the away section sold out very quickly.
This despite the fixture being moved twice and being played midweek.
The allocation of 3,132 being snapped up by Newcastle fans, keen to add a visit to Wembley to their collection of away matches.
Three thousand or so tickets is average for an away game these days but it is a joke really when you consider how many Wembley holds.
I think as well that with it being everybody’s national stadium and Spurs allowed the privilege of playing there for an entire Premier League season, I believe that the other 19 clubs should have been allowed to share in that.
Why not give every Premier League club 10,000 tickets for each fixture, if the demand was there?
After all, that still left tens of thousands more seats each game than Tottenham’s capacity was at White Hart Lane.
Anyway, bad enough getting so few tickets for away fans BUT unforgivable if there are going to be tens of thousands of empty seats.
Tottenham have announced now that there are plenty of tickets left unsold for Wednesday night’s match, the fact they also play next weekend at home on the final day, will not ave helped. However, Tottenham knew that when deciding how many tickets Newcastle fans would get.
The last two home games sum up Tottenham’s crowds this season – 80,811 turning up when Manchester City were the opposition, whilst the last game saw only 52,675 when Watford visited. Losing thirty thousand fans for less attractive games.
Below is the information released on how to buy the unsold tickets for the Tottenham v Newcastle match and I have no idea if you will get knocked back for being a Newcastle fan. When you go into the link it talks about registering and so especially if you have a non-Newcastle postcode, I can’t imagine how they are going to differentiate between you and a Tottenham supporter.
The fact that after losing at West Brom their Champions League place is under threat from Chelsea might attract a few more Spurs fans to buy – but no way will they sell all the unsold tickets.
When you look to buy tickets online, this map is what you get to select seats, two days before the game there are an enormous number of seats unsold.
The blue areas show where tickets are still left and there is an awful lot of them!
