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.
