With a capacity of over 52,000, St James’ Park is one of the UK’s largest stadiums – and those seeking to join the ranks of passionate Geordie supporters can buy match tickets via a number of reputable websites.
Newcastle United fans are widely considered some of the most passionate anywhere in Europe and the club have continued to attract sizeable attendances despite its travails. However, in 2021 Newcastle was purchased by the hugely wealthy Public Investment Fund of Saudi Arabia, which may well turn out to signal a reversal in fortunes – quite literally – for the northeast club and its dedicated followers.
If you’d like to know specific dates for Newcastle home fixtures, these are available to view on the club’s official website and at various other online sources. Games at St James’ Park can be in fairly high demand, but nonetheless some tickets are sometimes available on general sale. There are also a wide number of websites where you can get yourself a ticket for a game, and we’ve picked out two of the best.
Our recommended choice for buying Newcastle tickets online is resale agency Ticketgum, who purchase tickets from club members who can’t attend games and then sell them on via the platform. While this can sometimes be pricey, it’s reliable, as Ticketgum officially own the tickets so there’s no chance of forgeries. There also seems to be availability for pretty much every game Newcastle play, based on our searches. Prices tend to ebb and flow, and the nearer to the match the more you’ll probably need to cough up – though last-minute tickets are sometimes available for dirt cheap. For upcoming games against Wolves and Leicester, we found tickets starting at around £110. After buying your tickets, they’re sent by express delivery to your preferred address, which can even be a hotel if you’re only in town for the game. You’re provided with a tracking number to keep tabs on the tickets too. Other good things about Ticketgum are that they offer a 100% money back guarantee in the event of a cancelled game.
Live Football Tickets
In operation for well over a decade, Live Football Tickets have earned a strong reputation among football fans. While their service and booking fees such as shipping can be a fair bit steeper than their competitors, they do tend to offer a significantly larger choice of tickets for most games. One big advantage for families or groups of friends is that the website lets you buy up to four tickets all next to each other. During our search for Newcastle games for the remainder of the current season, tickets were available for all home fixtures, with prices beginning at around £74 for less prestigious games such as Crystal Palace and Wolves. The site also offers a “150%” money-back guarantee if you don’t receive your tickets in time, can’t access the stadium, or if a game is cancelled and not rescheduled.
