Great news for Newcastle United fans as Bournemouth hand tickets back

1 month ago

Newcastle United fans have had some positive news for the Bournemouth match next month.

The two teams meet on Saturday 17 February for a 3pm kick-off in the Premier League.

Bournemouth had only taken 2,200 tickets for the match, 1,000 less than the 3,200 maximum allowed for away supporters, meaning an extra thousand available for Newcastle United fans.

Now the south coast clubs have revealed (see below) that in the end they have sold only 1,165 tickets, then returned the rest. Meaning in total around 2,000 extra tickets will be available to Newcastle United fans, compared to matches where the away club takes up the full allocation.

Bournemouth official announcement – 8 January 2024:

‘Ticket information has been released for our upcoming away trip against Newcastle United.

The Cherries travel to St James’ Park for a 3pm kick-off on Saturday 17th February.

We have been handed an allocation of up to 2,200 tickets for the match, which will go on sale from 10am on Tuesday 9th January.’
