On Monday morning the Blackburn v Newcastle ticket prices have been revealed.

The ticket prices are laid out below but you certainly can’t complain, with Under 18s paying only £2 for a ticket.
Adults pay £10 with those aged 65+ and those aged 18-21 paying a fiver.
Newcastle United doubled their ticket prices to £20 and £10 for concessions on the day (Saturday) of the 1-1 draw and Blackburn are doubling theirs on matchday, though only after 5pm on the day of the game.
No date is confirmed but the match is expected to take place on either Tuesday 15 January or Wednesday 16 January.
Once Wolves v Liverpool play tonight, the TV companies will choose the replays to be shown live.
Even if tonight’s game is a draw, Blackburn v Newcastle looks sure to be one of those chosen for live broadcast.
There have only been four draws in the opening 31 third round matches and Newcastle’s visit to Blackburn is the only one where lower league opposition are home to a Premier League club.
