It looks like the Rafa effect at Newcastle is having its impact on season ticket sales, with the sales of season tickets the quickest and highest they have been for several years, according to Stephen Tickle, the box office manager at Newcastle United,
And the club have just announced season tickets in the 8,200-capacity Family Area at St. James’ Park have sold out following a busy day of sales yesterday.
And this is for the Championship!
This is what Stephen Tickle has said today:
“It’s been several years since we’ve seen sales at the high level we had yesterday. Our phone lines and website are running at capacity and the box office has been working overtime to service demand.”
“On behalf of our box office team, I’d like to thank supporters for their patience. We’ll continue to work hard as hard as we can to make the process as quick and convenient as possible.”
Hopefully this is the start of a new and successful era at Newcastle and everybody associated with the club can get behind Rafa, the coaches and the players for a very successful first full season under Benitez.
In short that means an automatic promotion back to the Premier League.
Howay The Lads!!
