More Good News From Newcastle


Newcastle have done the sensible thing and reduced season ticket prices by 10% for next season in the Championship – and it seems financially that Newcastle are in decent enough shape to survive one season down below – but no more.

The club may have been tempted to keep the prices almost the same with demand likely to be high, because world-class manager Rafa Benitez has agreed to stay on, but the club are now being run by Rafa and we expect to see a well-run club from now on.

Hopefully the season tickets will sell out like hot cakes.

Since Rafa has day-to-day control of all football related matters there’s not too much that can be described as non football related at a football club.

So that’s good.

Here is the full announcement put out by Newcastle United.

=====

Newcastle United have confirmed that all season ticket prices for the 2016/17 season at St. James’ Park will be reduced by ten per cent across the board.

The Club announced in February that it had reduced all junior season ticket prices for next season by up to 54%, as well as freezing adult season ticket prices.

Following relegation to the Championship and confirmation that manager Rafa Benitez will remain at Newcastle United, a new ten per cent discount has now been applied to reward supporters’ loyalty.

Supporters on long-term price deals will receive a ten per cent reduction on the prices sent to them in February and will receive refunds or reductions in their monthly payments.

Lee Charnley, Managing Director at Newcastle United, said:

“With our future under Rafa now secured, we are delighted to announce price reductions across the board for all supporters.”

“Your loyalty through these challenging times has been magnificent and it is right that we now reward you with savings for our 2016/2017 Championship season.”

The Club will now be writing to season ticket holders in the coming days and weeks, detailing new prices and the process of how refunds and/or reductions will be managed.

For supporters wanting to purchase a one-year season ticket:

For example, an adult in our category 2 seating, you’ll be paying £520 for your season ticket instead of £578 in 2015/16.

Combined with the additional four games, this brings the per-game price down from £30 to under £23.

Prices in the Family Area are £68 for under-18s and £329 for adults. This means a per-game price of £3 for under-18s and just over £14 for adults.

Juniors across the board will see significant reductions from their 2015/16 price.

Fans with an existing one-season, half-season and five-game season ticket will be able to renew online, over the phone or via our Match-day Box Office from Tuesday (31st May).

We will make applications forms and monthly direct debit forms available online from Monday, 6th June.

In the meantime, all seats which were occupied during the 2015/16 season will be reserved until Friday, 1st July to enable season ticket holders to keep their seat.

If the Club has not heard from 2015/16 season ticket holders by Wednesday, 15th June, a prompt will be issued giving all the information needed to renew.

Existing hospitality customers will also benefit from a ten per cent discount and the Club will be in contact shortly to confirm new prices.

=====

Rafa has brought everybody associated with Newcastle together, after a calamitous two years of disaster.

So it’s a great opportunity – albeit in the second division – to really get our act together and not only put together a very strong squad this summer for the upcoming season, but also start to improve the club’s facilities – which have been left dormant for far too long.

It’s like a renewal and there’s now real hope for the future of Newcastle United Football Club under Rafa Benitez.

Hallelujah!

    Delph out injured, sturidge probably also injured. I think it will be one of drinkwater, horrendouson or milner which will be the other. I fully believe townsend only got 15mins because hodgeson already knows what he can do when fit, and will probably already be on the plane….i hope.

    Om the booing… i accept the ironic booing when he first came on, but not every time he touched the ball ffs. Did we boo everytime adam johnson touched a child!?

    What’s going on at SJP? Are we dreaming?

    They persuade Rafa to stay on;

    They dump the failed football management model – a manager, in control of mstters football?;

    Reducing ST prices – an inspired initiative by the Club. Better have 50,000 in the ground with Rafa than 15-20,OOO!

    Carr, his wings clipped and I’d guess, reporting to Rafa;

    Moncur? Mmmm, what’s he going to do? What was he for?

    Charnley, incompetence personified, keeps his MD role but now seemingly co-operating with and responding to the requirements of Rafa, the football specialist who has clear and binding authority – something lacking under Ashley’s ownership.

    Thankfully, Rafa seems to see the challenge of a massive project to revive Newcastle United: Jamie Carragher’s assertion that the [high] standard of manager in the Prem meant Rafa had to go to the Championship for a job
    is just incredible!

    Onwards and upwards with Rafa

    Carragher is dense as fcuk. You have time to stone an elephant to death with ripe figs before you get through to him. As I always say, he is just a phlegmy scouse biscuit.

    Let’s just analyse that shall we Jamie – you say that Rafa Benitez couldn’t cut it in the premier league because he’s have to be of the same pedigree as Tony Pulis. Sam Allardyce. David Unsworth. And of course our very own cup-shy Alan Pardew. That’s what you’re saying is it?

    Unbelievable they put a suit on on and let you talk to the nation. Unbelievable.

    For Carragher to say what he said was disrespectful to a world class manager and he didn’t do his reputation as a football pundit any good.

    I wonder if there’s some history between Carragher and Rafa? Maybe Rafa’s upset him and he’s still huffed, poor bairn.

    Whilst “not my bag” I understand that a fine accessory to leather chaps is a zip up gimp mask.
