Newcastle’s season ticket prices have fallen by 1% from last season, and that’s the lowest “increase” or highest “decrease” (take your choice) in season ticket prices of any of the 20 Premier League clubs – so least for this measurement we top the Premier League.
Mike Ashley – kept season ticket prices very low
The biggest increases are at QPR at +38%, Burnley at +37% (two promoted clubs), and Hull City at +27%.
Seven clubs have frozen their season ticket prices from last season, and those clubs are Tottenham, Chelsea, Manchester United, West Ham, Sunderland, Swansea and West Brom,
To be fair to Mike Ashley, the controversial owner has given fans some very good deals on season tickets for a number of years now, with the aim being to fill the St. James’ Park stadium, and that can only help the side.
But the club seemed to be struggling to sell the available season tickets earlier this summer, but we would expect some of the remaining tickets have been snapped up after we brought in Remy Cabella, Emmanuel Riviere and Daryl Janmaat last week over five days – amazing.
So it seems that Mike is starting to get some positive press for a change, given how well Newcastle have also done in the transfer window so far this season.
And the owner could get even more positive press if we can sign the three or four players we need to top off what could be a terrific summer transfer window for Newcastle United.
