With a second boycott planned on Saturday against Swansea – in addition to protests and a stand up against Ashley after 34 minutes, Newcastle have announced today they are cutting their prices – obviously in an attempt to get fans to St. James’ Park on Saturday to support the team.
Mike Ashley – boycott and protests against the owner
The club have cut the prices to as low as £10 – and the gate receipts these days have dropped to only 20% of the total revenues, having been almost double that rate when Ashley bout the club eight years ago.
But the Premier League TV money is now 60% of all revenues at Newcastle and will increase by 70% of the current figure starting a year come July.
Here is that has been published on the Newcastle web-site:
Tickets for Newcastle United’s Barclays Premier League home fixture against Swansea City this weekend are available from just £10.
The Swans travel to St. James’ Park on Saturday (25th April), for a 3pm kick-off, and United will be looking to build on the 2-2 draw they secured in South Wales earlier in the season.
A section of Level 7 has become available, priced at just £10 for children, £19 for senior citizens and £20 for adults – an affordable way of watching top flight football – and can be purchased by clicking here.
Elsewhere in the stadium, tickets are priced from £27 for adults, £13 for children, £22 for senior citizens and £15 for students and those aged 18-21.
Member tickets are also available priced from just £25 for adults, £12 for children, £20 for senior citizens and £14 for students and those aged 18-21. These tickets can be bought online by clicking here, in person at the Box Office or by calling 0844 372 1892.
Our readers are not too confident we can get the win we need to get out relegation trouble and only 12% (about one in eight) think we can win the game – which we have lost 2-1 in the previous two seasons – in fact we have never beaten Swansea since they were promoted to the Premier League in the summer of 2011.
