Newcastle announce season ticket details for next 2022/23 Premier League campaign

Newcastle United have confirmed that additional season tickets will go on sale next week.

Thousands of supporters have already guaranteed their seat inside St James’ Park for next season, with the club confirming they’ve had ‘unprecedented level of renewals‘.

Now those without a ticket will get a chance to buy one, but only if you fit the criteria.

STRANGEST Contracts In Football | Anti-Arsenal And Nightclub Clause?!

The club have confirmed that fans who have bought a season ticket, matchday ticket or club membership since July 1st 2019 will be eligible. They add that supporters can check to see if they’re eligible by going to the club’s online box office.

Only one season ticket can be bought per supporter number, and they will go on sale on June 28th at 10am.

Tickets can only be purchased online.

How many tickets will be available to Toon fans

According to the Chronicle, only 1,000 extra season tickets will be made available to supporters.

There will also be additional tickets available for disabled supporters. However, the club’s wheelchair allocation is already sold out.

That will take us towards around 30,000 season ticket holders in total. That leaves thousands of tickets available for general release on a game-by-game basis.

Many will miss out, but Magpies plan seems fair

Deciding how to distribute new season tickets was an unenviable task for the new Newcastle United owners. There’s been a huge surge in demand since the change of ownership.

Tickets at St James’ Park were like gold dust last season, with fans eager to get inside the ground and support a club on the up.

Plenty of fans gave up their season tickets over the years, tired of what the club had become under Mike Ashley. There had been calls for those supporters to be given priority.

Fans with a recent purchase history will be able to try and get a ticket, but only if it came from July 1st 2019 onwards. That was the first season of Steve Bruce’s tenure, and also includes the period in which fans couldn’t go to games due to COVID.

There will obviously be a lot of people upset by the club’s decision. However, they were never going to be able to please everyone. The fact the club’s website crashed with fans checking to see if they were eligible proves how much demand there is. Gone are the days of the free season ticket

The limited number of season tickets should increase the amount available for individual matches, which should hopefully give more fans the opportunity to go to games.

Fans have had an agonizing wait for information, now they have six days more to find out if they are one of the lucky 1,000.

St James’ Park has suddenly turned into Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory.
