Newcastle United fans to be allowed into friendly – Opposition club confirm in Friday update

7 months ago

Some much needed positivity for Newcastle United fans on Friday afternoon.

Confirmation that they are to be allowed into one of the pre-season friendlies.

York City had announced last week that it would be home supporters only, no Newcastle United fans, for the friendly on Sunday 18 July.

With Harrogate Town expected almost certainly to follow with a similar message, as they play NUFC same time and same date, one day before the hoped for opening up from remaining covid restrictions on Monday 19 July.

Now on Friday, Doncaster Rovers have confirmed (see below) that Newcastle United fans will receive an allocation for the match on Friday 23 July, in exactly three weeks time.

Their Keepmoat Stadium has a decent capacity of around 15,000, so hopefully a fairly healthy allocation for Newcastle United fans.

Newcastle United pre-season friendlies:

Sunday 18 July – York City away (2pm)

Sunday 18 July Harrogate Town away(2pm)

Friday 23 July – Doncaster Rovers away (7pm)

Tuesday 27 July – Rotherham United away (7pm)

Friday 30 July – Burton Albion away (7.45pm)

Saturday 7 August – Norwich home (2pm)
