Wolves visit St James Park in 20 days time.
This match on Sunday 9 December has been nominated by The Magpie Group as the game for Newcastle fans to boycott, if they want to join in with a protest against Mike Ashley’s ongoing ownership of Newcastle United.
This particular game selected to boycott because it is live on Sky Sports, the idea being that it is a more powerful message if thousands of empty seats are beamed around the world (despite in the main being already paid for), plus of course if fans do boycott they can still watch the game on TV.
As for the away fans, Wolves have given an update on Monday afternoon as to how the tickets are selling.
They took the full 3,200 allocation and have so far sold around 1,900.
However, like Newcastle they use a loyalty point system and as you can see below they go into a lot of detail as to the stages where different levels of points holders can buy.
The bottom line is that Wolves were always going to sell out for this game, unlike Bournemouth, Watford and Brighton who brought low numbers of away supporters. So, with any number of categories of fans still to go, the remaining 1,300 Wolves away tickets are going to sell out soon.
The 64 Dollar question of course though, is how many Newcastle fans will support the boycott?
Tickets are now on sale for all six of Newcastle’s matches before Christmas, details below (some games there are restrictions on who can buy them at the moment).
Wolves ticket announcement for the Newcastle United match:
