Club urged to suspend draconian Newcastle United ticket policy due to Sunday Tottenham issues

3 months ago

Fair to say that the Newcastle United ticket policy has provoked plenty of debate.

For both home and away matches, the overwhelming majority of fans seeing it as way over the top.

With the new Newcastle United ticket policy brought in for this current season, seeing supporters threatened with losing their loyalty points and/or even losing their season tickets.

Today sums up why this policy of spot checks and punishments needs to be drastically looked at.

At the very least the club needs to put out a statement ASAP today to say that the spot checks and punishments are suspended for this Tottenham v Newcastle match.

There is total travel chaos with it all but impossible to get from Newcastle to London via train today, as you can see by the LNER official statement below.

For the majority of regular away travellers living on Tyneside, the train is the most popular and obvious choice for London games.

Even if Newcastle United fans do still somehow get there by train today, they will then be wondering just what their chances would be of making it back for work on Monday.

If Newcastle United fans with tickets for the Tottenham match can’t make it today, then the club need to be saying NOW that they can transfer their tickets to other fans who can still make it to the game if getting a bit notice.
