It looks like Newcastle United will again smash the Coca Cola Championship attendance record, when they host Ipswich Town in their final game of the season on 24th April, a week on Saturday.
The famous Newcastle United fans
Newcastle smashed Sunderland’s record back on December 20th against Middlesbrough, when 49,644 fans turned up for the game.
And the Newcastle overall attendance record this season is just under 43,000.
The Newcastle Club confirmed this morning that the game has fully sold out 11 days ahead of the game.
And it looks like the Newcastle fans want to party again that Saturday afternoon, and thank the players and coaches for the fantastic job they have all done for the club this season.
And Newcastle manager Chris Hughton talked today about the sell-out:
“That is fantastic.”
“Their support this season has been incredible and I’ve gone on record many times saying they are the best in the country.”
“Home or away, they have backed us until the last and the players and staff could not be more appreciative.”
“Ipswich promises to be another memorable day and to have a sell-out crowd is the perfect way to sign off from our home campaign.”
It will be a great day to celebrate promotion for all Newcastle fans, everywhere, so the lads had better put on a good show for us all. 😀
