Newcastle Sell Almost 4,000 Additional Season Tickets


Newcastle have come out and said they they have sold almost 4,000 extra season tickets.

St. James’ Park  – more fans will attend  home games now

That’s really good news because it will see the crowd at each home game at St. James’ Park that much bigger, and that will only help the players get those points.

And it’s good for the club too from, a financial viewpoint,  because they have sold 4,000 more season tickets, albeit at a reduced amount from the original prices.

Ashley and LLambias apparently came up with the idea at the last home game against Wigan, where there were over 48,000 fans at that game,  so maybe they were wondering how to fill the stadium in future games.

And with the new season tickets sold, that will certainly help to bring Newcastle crowds back up to their  capacity of just over 52,000.

Ashley offered existing season ticket holders a good deal,  where they could buy additional season tickets at around half the price, and it seems to have worked very well.

The fact that Newcastle are flying high these days also helped, and that manager Alan Pardew has the lads playing attractive and attacking football didn’t hurt either.

The news this morning from the club is that the family enclosure will now hold more than 7,500 fans and has officially been expanded into block L7D of the Sir John Hall Stand West Corner.

And as we pointed out last Monday, Newcastle now see to be doing a lot of things right these days, and of course they should put their first priority on seeing that their fans are well taken care of.

The fans and their terrific support are  a huge strength of Newcastle United, and always have been.

Comments welcome.

    I’m also loving the fact that they are now doing Tickets for Troops and discounts for the forces.
    Think Ashley might be on a charm offensive.

    the only link to a player that has excited me is the one with moussa sow i watched a lot of clips of lille when we were linked with cabaye and that ugly freak gervinho and everytime that sow scored the guy is an absoloute beast him and ba would absoloutely terorise defences all over the place.

    Sorry but Hoillet is 10x the player of Rodallega and has 10x as much potential.. Rodallega is so over-rated its unreal

    completely agree with GT89 there like, Hoilett is at least twice the player Rodallega will ever be. If Spurs are the only other club interested I think our chances of signing him would be quite high aswell.

    Anyone remember Piennear, not sure if thats spelled right, but went from Everton to spurs and cant get a game to save his life now and is trying to go back to everton.

    Moses is wigans best player by far…

    Stuart – Pienaar was a player that a wanted us to sign at the time doubt he would get his game for us now like, but a said from the start as soon as he went to spuds he wouldnt get a game he plays left wing and howay whos better him or Bale.. or if he wanted to move inside who would you play.. Van der Vaart and Modric or Pienaar hahaha

    Toon_Tom – In my opinion a say Best has to start on saturday as he compliments Ba so much, a do agree that Benny needs games but well we also need to win.. a personally think if wer struggling to get him involved why not send him onloan to championship team with guarentee of starting games for maximum of a month to get his confidence and match sharpness up.. sounds daft but if you really think about it, this would benefit him and us so much as we just cant get him involved at the moment

    Tang – yeah i totally agree mate, that is my first choice. My second is just a thought to get HBA into our team (somehow) as it has to be done. I dont think he will be happy for much longer as our “impact sub” and may spit his dummy out soon, so my second line-up was for Hatem!!!!!

    Its mad when you think about it. We were ALL praying that HBA comes back to fitness ASAP so that we can configure our starting 11 around him really…. now he cant get into the team, bless him 😀

    If someone is scared of something, one of the therapies, is to make them face their fear. So bang HBA in from the start against Man Citeh.

    its not the fact of him being scared he just isnt match fit and banging him in against Man City would be like starting the game with 10 men and thats a game we really cant afford to carry someone

    I’d say for Obertan. I know we all want Marv to get his shot but it would be good for HBA, also it would give Baines alot to think about.

    @33. I reckon Tiote will have Drenthe in his pocket mate. Assuming he is definitely over his injury anyway.

    Toon_Tom team at (13) looks spot on to me, i wouldnt disrupt the winning formula just yet. I feel against man titties we will need to have the same hard working ethic we did against stoke coz its gunna be a hugely tougher game.

    Lets do everton first though eh

    4-4-1-1 Vs Everton

    Krul.
    RTaylor,STaylor,Collocini,Santon.
    SAMeobi,Cabaye,Guthrie,Marveaux.
    Gosling.
    Ba.

    Subs-Soderberg,Simpson,Abeid,Vuckic,Guttierez,Ben Arfa,Best.

    Just think a few changes will freshen things up and can even afford to rest Tiote and drop a couple of players to the bench. The lads put in quite a shift v Stoke City!
