It’s No Surprise – Newcastle Season Tickets Selling Like Hot Cakes

Newcastle United at the moment is a club in renaissance, with the man leading the club back to where we belong – being a top club in Europe – is the extremely popular and very talented Mr. Rafa Benitez.

Our average home league attendance last season was the highest second division attendance in England since way back in 1959 when Elvis was King.

The average attendance was 51,108 and that just shows the backing that Rafa Benitez has from the local Geordie fans.


Lee Charnley – Newcastle’s’ Managing Director
Season tickets selling very quickly

Now we are back in the Premier League again, having gone up as Champions, we expected season tickets to sell very quickly.

On Monday, Newcastle sold 1,000 season tickets on the very first day of general sales as local fans want to ensure they are part of the Rafa revolution (Rafalution) going on at full speed at the moment.

To say it’s an exciting time now for Newcastle fans everywhere is a massive understatement.

Newcastle sold close to  38,000 season tickets last season and will sell more than that this season when we will welcome teams like Chelsea, Manchester United, Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham to the mercurial St. James’ Park Stadium – and likely beat quite a few of them too.

The club has already said they are “surpassing expectations” in terms of their overall sales – as reported in the Chronicle yesterday.

So if you want to get a season ticket or renew your existing one you can do it here or on the box office at

0844 372 1892 (calls cost 7 pence per minute).

The fact that Rafa Benitez and Lee Charnley are also working hard to bring in up to eight new players into the first team squad is also an exciting prospect.

The club is hoping we can make  a breakthrough in the transfer market this week and sign 26 year-old Frenchman Florian Lejeune – said to be Rafa’s number one center-back target for the summer.

That would be good – very good.

    Selling just 1,000 on the first day doesn’t sound ideal to me.

    Pity we can’t develop the ground more as I’m sure the 52,000 would easily be broken every home game

    Anyone else worried that whenever we play away in that green kit out players aren’t going to be able to see each other as they all blend into the grass beneath them?

    I doubt blending in with the grass is going to be an issue, lots of teams play in green.

    Haven’t been on in a while but I love the look of the rumored away kit, very similar to the 3rd kit from early/mid 90’s. I wanted it when I was a kid but being in Ireland it was impossible to get. Haven’t bought a shirt since the whole wonga thing so might have to make up for it and get home & away this year

    The 1000 sold obviously does not include those who auto renew ,most if not all of the 38000 season tickets sold last season will be renewed so any season tickets sold in the public sale will be over and above the 38000 already renewed, I believe the last day for season ticket renewals is 26th of June and any season tickets not renewed can be purchased by the public after then.
