St James’ Park spectacular Newcastle United Champions League drones show – Watch here

5 months ago

Excitement building ahead of Champions League football returning to St James’ Park.

PSG the visitors on Wednesday night, first time in over 20 years that SJP has hosted a Champions League match.

Then yesterday, Newcastle United revealed that shirt sponsor Sela had organised some ‘spectacular drone shows’ ahead of the Champions League return.

Monday night would see the drone shows go ahead above St James’ Park, with the shows scheduled for 8pm and 9.45pm.

In the end adverse weather conditions prevented the later show going ahead.

However, the 8pm one did go ahead as planned.

You can watch some of the highlights of it below.

I was a bit sceptical when it was described as going to be ‘spectacular’, I am somebody who finds firework displays very tedious and once you have seen one then…

However, I must admit, this drones show over St James’ Park did look very good, fair play to Newcastle United / Sela for putting it on.
