Last Sunday I wrote an article about the number of Newcastle United season tickets that were still unsold.

It seemed to attract a fair bit of attention and there was some very interesting feedback.

I also made the point (see below) that Newcastle United were delaying putting the Tottenham tickets on sale, as clearly they must be hoping for a late rush of Newcastle United season tickets being sold. This was despite Spurs putting their 3,100 away tickets for the game on sale on 18 July.

The information on how many seats remain available is all on the official NUFC ticket site (as explained below), last week there were 5,246 potential Newcastle United season tickets seats still unsold (this doesn’t include the away seats, or any ticket that is a corporate seat at St James Park – these are never shown as available on the NUFC ticket site map).

The plan below from the Newcastle United ticketing site shows which areas (in green) you can still buy season tickets in, as of Sunday 29 July:

If you compare it to the availability map last week, they look remarkably similar. In fact, one week later you can still buy a season ticket in all of those same areas.

Counting up how many seats remain unsold, there are still 4,650.

This shows that a maximum of 596 Newcastle United season tickets have been sold in the past week, not exactly an avalanche of interest.

We are now 11 days past when Spurs put the away tickets on sale and still no matchday tickets put up for sale by Newcastle United or indeed even advertised as to when that date might be.

A call to the NUFC ticket office on Friday and the staff say they still haven’t been told when tickets for the Tottenham match will go on sale, they ‘hope’ it will be sometime this coming week.

Match by match tickets have to go on sale to members first, before then the general public, so interesting to see just how late Mike Ashley and his minions will leave it before admitting defeat in trying to repeat last season’s sell out of season tickets.

Supporters being fed up with Mike Ashley’s running of the club has been there for the past decade, it is just every individual has their own breaking point.

Obviously thousands of season tickets holders decided not to renew this summer and now we all hope that the #IfRafaGoesWeGo campaign can help bring everybody together, to hopefully keep Rafa and convince Mike Ashley he has to sell up or change the way he runs things at St James Park.

My last article on The Mag a week ago – 22 July 2018:

The latest Newcastle fans initiative to try and get Mike Ashley to change his ways, or preferably sell up, is well underway.

The #IfRafaGoesWeGo campaign gaining instant support and traction, as disaster looms.

Refusing to allow any money to be spent in this transfer window unless players are sold to fund them, will guarantee a relegation struggle this coming season and Rafa Benitez walking away at the end of it, even if ‘successful’ in keeping the club in the Premier League once again.

The new campaign aims to warn the NUFC owner that thousands of fans (especially those with Newcastle United season tickets) will walk away if he doesn’t start backing Rafa Benitez.

However, it appears that Mike Ashley has been having plenty of success in that direction already, without any need for an organised protest campaign.

The club have (inadvertently) revealed just how many Newcastle United season tickets remain unsold.

Last summer, the club announced they had sold out of season tickets (this was then backed up when in November (2017) the club stated that unlike recent years, there would be no sale of half-season tickets as there were none available), there appears little chance of that this time.

For those who were/are looking to buy a season ticket, the club have an online facility where you can look at the stadium plan and see which seat(s) you’d like to buy.

At first after the season ticket renewal deadline (the second one, after NUFC pushed back the original renewal deadline due to poor sales), the stadium plan only showed a handful of areas in St James Park where season tickets were available.

However, now that has changed, and you have a pick of a lot of areas of the stadium, indeed a LOT.

The plan below from the Newcastle United ticketing site shows which areas (in green) you can buy season tickets in.

newcastle united season tickets

The away fans area in the Leazes and the corporate areas (mainly Milburn) never show up as available to buy on the stadium plan but as you can see, there are only a small handful of areas that have sold out so far.

When you go on the club’s ticketing site you can see exactly which seats are unsold and after adding these up, I counted at least 5,246 seats remain unsold (I’m not quite sad enough to have counted individual seats on the plan, as well as being able to look and see which actual seats are unsold, the site also has the number of unsolds for each section, making it relatively easy to tot up).

Whilst I am of course fully supportive of the #IfRafaGoesWeGo initiative, as indeed I am of anything that is pro-fan/Rafa and anti-Ashley, I have always thought that eventually Mike Ashley will add just one too many straws onto the NUFC camel’s back, pushing Newcastle fans just too far.

This summer obviously many Newcastle fans have been convinced to give it at least one more season mainly because of Rafa Benitez sticking it out for at least the final year of his contract.

However, clearly thousands of others though have already said enough is enough.

Hardly surprising really when you think about it.

Whilst there was satisfaction in staying up last season it was a relegation struggle for all but the final few weeks and much of the football wasn’t great, due to the ridiculously low transfer net spend that was allowed by Mike Ashley.

Add to that all areas of St James Park seeing season ticket rises, some by as much as over 20% rises.

Then with only £4m spent in the transfer market and indeed currently having made a profit in this transfer window…

Also, Rafa now going public that indeed he can’t buy anybody else unless selling players first.

You have to congratulate Mike Ashley on the amazing contribution he’s made already to driving fans away from St James Park.

Interesting as well that no tickets going on sale for the Tottenham game as yet, despite it being less than three weeks away. This is even though Tottenham put their 3,100 tickets for the match on sale on Wednesday 18 July. Guessing Mike Ashley and his lackeys are counting on a late rush for Newcastle United season tickets…

I think an extra level of anger is set to be added when single match tickets do go on sale for that opening Newcastle v Tottenham game, with those rises in season ticket prices I think we can be assured we are going to see a good few quid going on individual tickets.

Welcome to Mike Ashley’s vision of running a football club, even Newcastle fans will eventually have had enough, and this is whether Rafa Benitez stays or not.

    Have you clicked on the green areas thought to see how many are available in them as many are single seats whereas most people want to sit with their mates. This is a overhyped nonsense. For example i looked at moving from the east stand paddocks to 1892 with three seats, only one row abailable. Just saying

    • Mark Potter

      And every single remaining seat will be snapped up within an hour or two of general release. There will be a full house against Spurs. The protesters who hate the club, can’t possibly explain how they can support the manager/team, while at the same time boycotting matches. Nor can they explain the fact that there have been two million attendances at SJP over the last two years. The people are voting with their feet, and they show that overwhelmingly they do not support boycotts.

  • Pc07

    Firstly I respect that it’s a personal decision to attend the matches or not, but for me why would anyone fork out for one of these season tickets. The club sadly has no ambition. We are at the bottom of the pile in the league in terms of trying to do something. Every transfer window is a disappointment. It’s just one bad news story after another. We never attempt to win cups, last time we were in Europe the manager saw it as a distraction and revelled in not having to play in it again. Our aim is just to exist to make premowr leqgue tv money for ashley. Thats it! We’re just supporting his business, in my eyes this isnt a sporting club anymore. As teams are generaly required to compete in sport. The owner is playing the city and fanbase for a bunch of mugs and he’ll never change when 10s of thousands continue to buy season tickets. And let’s be honest the stadium will be sold out for the opener. But what are people paying for. I personally can’t take any joy from the club anymore. Even when we get a good win it just doesn’t matter, it’s not like we’ll build on it. Last season was a very promising position to build upon, and so many people went into this window, bizarrely, thinking we’d get the players needed to push on. But you only have to look at what happened after the 5th place season to see that wouldn’t happen. So far we’ve replaced back up players with cheaper back ups. I don’t see any victory here that there’s 4k season tickets left, just a failure that 30k or have been sold, at a massively increased price no less.

    • Toonrobbybobson

      Brilliantly put. Sums up exactly how I felt and why I decided it was enough for me. I won’t pump anymore money into the club until it is no longer subsidising Mike Ashleys tat empire.

          • Superdooperhooper

            What ? What difference does it make watching them in a 55 or 65 quid shirt? None of it goes on investment in the club anyway

          • Ben Jones

            So why not say 80 quid shirts if it makes no difference

    • Down Under Mag

      To be honest, claiming we are the best football fans in the world, a tired cliche at best, and then saying that why should be bother turning up if we have no chance of winning anything is a total contradiction. We may as well all stop supporting any of our clubs and just head off and sign up to the Man City, man utd or just have done altogether and buy a Barca top and be done with it. I’m not a glory hunter, I never have been and certainly would not be supporting NUFC if I were…but on that note the fact I still support my club should be shown respect and aplauded since I am still doing that IN SPITE OF and not because of what is happening at the ownership level. Ticket sales make such a low portion of club revenue it will not make a ripple in Ashley’s pocket and just shows our fans up in a bad light. I think fans who want to still go to the matches should be allowed to do so just as those who feel their staying away is their last resort action to try and make themselves heard. Abusing other fans because they have a difference of opinion on that is not cool at all.

      • Ben Jones

        Bravo

      • Pc07

        No one is being abused, I started my post stating that I respect anyone else’s decision with regards to the matter before stating my own personal opinion. And I didn’t mention not supporting them because they aren’t winning. If Newcastle only had fans who witnesses major trophies being won we definitely wouldn’t be seeing 50k+ at games. You state match day revenue is only a small amount of the income, you’re very wrong, it’s a large chunk. Especially last year in the championship. Combined with merchandise sales it’s very significant. Especially for a club who’s commercial income is minimal thanks to the free advertising of sports direct. Aside from the money and empty stadium with 50k fans protesting outside every home game would bring massive attention nationally and internationally to the club and maybe just maybe pressurise Ashley to move on. Currently he gets no pressure. He has full stadiums roaring on a team he doesn’t invest in, or more accurately who he steals from, with sports direct plastered everywhere, with the global audience watching on thinking everything is rosey there, think I’ll go buy something at sports direct”. That’s my thoughts on what i’d like to see happen as I’d like to see the club become something more than what it’s been for the last 11 years. Instead I have people like you come on and tell me I’m not a real fan. With all due respect go f*c* yourself.

        • Down Under Mag

          So just clarifying, I wasn’t claiming you were abusing other fans, it was more a generalisation about what tends to happen.

          I think there is a need to respect others decisions in this and if you feel that there should be an alternate course of action then fine, say this as politely (with reasons laid out) as you can. I think people who want to continue to go to the match have every right to do so without abuse that some give them, but I do see why some sections of the fanbase feel enough is enough and that some form of action is required to try and force a change in the way the club is run.

          Sorry if you thought I was having a go at you…that would have been a bit hypocritical given I was preaching understanding hehe.

      • Toonrobbybobson

        Theres a difference here. Its a principle thing by fans to support the club long term in its best interests.

        We have an owner who is not interested in sporting football reasons for the club. Only to benefit himself and his empire with not sporting ambition whatsoever.

        Hes a cuckoo. Hes come along and plonked himself in a nest where others feed him.

        He has absolutely no interest whatsoever in the club apart from the TV revenues, free advertising and asset stripping for personal gains.

        If you are happy for the club to be taken advantage of by all means thats your agenda. I and many others have had enough of it and intend to do something about it. For me doing nothing is not an option. Its just not in my makeup. I believe I AM supporting the club by my actions. I want to force a regime change which will spark an upturn in atmosphere and sporting ambition at the club. You know… to compete.

        Then again you forget that many fans now cannot remember much other than Mike Ashleys awful turgid dross.

        When NUFC has ownership, manager, players and fans in harmony its an amazing club that can ride momentum. Ashley wants no momentum unless the club is relegated where he is happy to yoyo.

      Round five thousand went on sale today for Spurs. Within a couple of hours there were only 539 single seats in the normal part of the ground all singles which are hard to shift. The Family enclosure has 720 seats left but you have to be a mix to buy them. With it being on T.V and £37.00 to £62.00 a ticket have done well to sell so many. Only 200 hundred left in the Platinum Club with a few hundred corporate which will go. Got yet another three this morning the last ones together.

        • Ben Jones

          This one’s got anger issues

          • Dillon Tovak

            Yawn.

          • Ben Jones

            This one’s tired

    • Leazes.

      Ha that the way… keep them busy until we get a moderator.

  • paul mclaughlan

    There’s a lot of hate and anger on here. And it seems to be getting worse. Everyone just chill. So what if we have differing opinions. I for one laugh especially if someone who I disagree with has my life. I doubt all the Ashley backers are the Lee brothers/family. So c’mon people have discussions and even arguments but let’s stop this hatred.

    • Toonrobbybobson

      Completely agree. Divide and conquer. Ashley will love it. We’ve tried one way and given it time. It has not worked. Its time for a change to try something else. Which will likely involve people getting involved properly like Rangers fans and Liverpool fans did.

    • Down Under Mag

      Such is the way of the world these days that people seem to think a difference of opinion warrants abuse and obnoxious treatment of other individuals without any concern for other peoples viewpoint. I admit, it may help if people could articulate themselves somewhat better than they do at times but there is just no respect for other peoples opinion and right to have that opinion these days. Football is all about opinions, and half of the enjoyment is discussing those differences… but sadly the days of just discussing these things seems to be dying out as the ever present keyboard warrior and endless trolls make their presence felt. I wonder if half the people on here would be able to look another fan in the eye and say half the stuff they say on here???

  • Toon

    What complete rubbish, I’m actually surprised you wrote such dribble never mind attempt to count seats. No main point, it looks pretty much like a huge number of season tickets have been sold and unless some ground breaking fan movement occurs (never going to happen) there will 52,000 attending v Spurs. I can bet all The Mag writers have renewed despite everything, worst type fan – constant whiners but all in Ashley’s pocket

    • Clarko

      ‘dribble’

      😂😂😂😂😂

    • Martin Rooney

      doubt it these numpties all live abroad sad and lonely numb nuts who’ve chucked all the retirement into a failed fantasy, and need to make those at back in the toon who support the club feel as pap as they do. effing idiots

  • SUPERDES ‘UP THE RA’

    He’s a scum bag.

  • Dillon Tovak

    I quit frequenting this site from this moment forth.
    It’s riddled with trolls with multiple ID’s. Debating in the comment section used to be fun, now it’s just sad and a waste of precious time.
    It’s been nice debating with you normal people anyway.
    Adios. 👋🏻

    • Ben Jones

      Take care Dillon, come back soon

    • SuperDesHamilton

      What you mean you don’t enjoy being called a Lee brother or whatever if you don’t hold the same opinion

    • Jezza

      I don’t blame you, marra. I regularly take time out for the same reason. I just like to talk football and debate the state of our club. Those trolls with their multiple ID’s are killing this once great forum. They have been responsible for at leaast two other NUFC forums being closed down in the past and it looks like this one is going the same way.

      • Leazes.

        I don’t think it was ever great but with that particular troll its days are numbered unless Jensen acts!

        • Wezza

          Well I for one like the forums because I used to think I was the only one who knew what Ashley is up to and it is refreshing to see everyone here says the same as well.

          • Ben Jones

            Everyone doesn’t though, you deny any opposing view and call troll. It’s ridiculous

      • Wezza

        We can’t let them win though.

        • Jezza

          If everybody would just block them and deny them the reaction they crave they would soon go away and haunt some other forum.

      • SuperDesHamilton

        ‘Marra’

        • Martin Rooney

          And there you have it finally evidence of what he really is

          • SuperDesHamilton

            The veils slipping

    • Leazes.

      Just block them and you don’t see them…… and it annoys them too…. you destroy the very thing they are trying to do which is make you feel bad.

      Stick in there Dillon, we’ll get a new service provider if we ask Mr Jensen nicely!

      • Jezza

        Yes, if people want to get back at those trolls the very best way to do it is to completely ignore them. They live for the replies to their provocative comments. They feed on it. They crave the reaction. Believe me, ignoring them will hurt them far more than arguing with them or making abusive and insulting comments. By ignoring them, we are taking away the one and only pleasure they get in their sad, pathetic, empty, meaningless, sex starved lives.

        • Hughie_Gallacher

          I’ve also blocked them all. I simply don’t understand where the trolls get all their energy from, unless they’re being paid to do what they do.

    • Rich Lawson

      I’ve already done it Dillon,your right,for a while you could have a decent debate or a bit of harmless fun,now it’s all Troll,Mackem,Coward,Idiot and worse.While I still read this I’m not going to comment until the season starts,then probably only if I really feel strongly about something ! I’ve enjoyed talking to you in the past,hope we can do it again sometime.

      • pedrodelgardo

        I’ve enjoyed your posts i think we are pretty much on the same page, I do like to laugh at the sadness of the trolls, tasting fatty’s hoop must be awful! I’ll stick around for a while for the giggles.

        • Rich Lawson

          Thank you.

  • Alex

    Looks like 596 people just voted to keep Ashley here longer. Bloody cowards.

    • Brian Standen

      Nothing cowardly about spending over £500 to follow a team they love!
      Idiotic comments like that just divide the fans further !

      • Toontaff

        Alex forgets that the Lee family bought 350 of them, whilst some were most likely kids/families buying their first ever season tickets. What he should do, is go stand outside The Strawberry before a match shouting cowards at all the match going fans!

        • Brian Standen

          Now that’s a step forward

        • Leazes.

          Or like fleckman standing outside the Strawberry shouting Ashley is great…. I’d pay to see that!

          • Will In Despair!

            If he did; odds on he’ll wear his favourite ‘I love (C)Ashley’ T-shirt, all nice and ironed, or even dry cleaned for such an auspicious occasion!

        • Monkseaton Magpies

          Cowards and traitors the ones who betray the team and do not go in.

      • Leazes.

        Like spending a fortune in time and money on a girl who doesn’t love you…. I’ve been there.

        • Brian Standen

          Excellent analogy

        • Will In Despair!

          Mmm… I bet many have been there 🤑

          Or paying a small fortune for a yummy Wagyu Porterhouse, knowing you’ll 💩 it out soon enough, lol.

          I’m terrible at analogies, I know, dodgy, I just had the urge! 🤣

    • Leazes.

      No not cowards ….. they are fools.

  • Toontaff

    There’s a pattern here. I think the later it gets, going into the early hours of the morning, the more abusive and weird the posts/posters! Every Toon online site seems to be full of abusive, weird fantasists and WUMs like this Ben Jones who just enjoy winding them up more. I am finding the comments section a very apt replacement for the Dave channel, due to the constant repeats………….

    • Wezza

      The ben jones is an alias of one of the he told so brothers who troll here from Manchester. They have over 40 ID’s between them and the word sad doesn’t do them justice.

      • Will In Despair!

        Sure makes you giggle when they converse between themselves, very convincing 🤔

      • Dont stop bobbi fleckman

        Of course, anyone who doesn’t have the same opinion as what appear to be some of the least intelligent people on the planet must one of two brothers in Manchester?

        You know this because Jezza, a fat simple ‘man’ who cannot honour charity bets, has employed a private investigator to break into the Disqus servers and find the IP addresses to correspond with the family home in Manchester.

        This does not appear likely, does it?

    • Jezza

      “Every Toon online site seems to be full of abusive, weird fantasists and WUMs like this Ben Jones”

      It is the same two trolls haunting every NUFC forum. They have been responsible for other Newcastle fans forums being closed down in the past and they are well on their way to killing this one too.

      • Dont stop bobbi fleckman

        Really? the only one who spams this site is a fat tranny.

    • Will In Despair!

      Boohoo the Dave channel, I mourn as life will never be the same 😥

  • Dont stop bobbi fleckman

    So, the story here is there are more season tickets sold this year than last.

  • Monkseaton Magpies

    What you fail to realise is that when we sell 40,000 season tickets they are taken off sale leaving 4,000 for general sale for each match. On the map is every seat available to buy but it shows all the tickets available. We could not sell them all as must keep 4,000 back.
