The club has been allocated 2640 tickets for this fixture. This represents a reduction in ticket allocation compared to the 2010-11 season which is due to an increase in the segregation space between fans in order to allow stewards and the police an opportunity to better manage the home and away supporters.
The club will once again be providing a fleet of free coaches to transport Newcastle United supporters to and from the Stadium of Light.
The club would strongly encourage all supporters to make use of this service as it's the quickest and safest way for supporters to travel to and from this fixture.
Bookings for coach travel can be made from the Box Office. All supporters booking a place on a supporter coach will receive a ticket. Please ensure you bring this ticket with you in order to board the coach.
Coaches will depart Barrack Road at 10am. Please arrive at 9.30am to ensure a prompt departure.
It is expected that Newcastle United fans will be held in the ground for a period of time after the game to allow home fans time to disperse the stadium. Returning coaches will leave the Stadium of Light shortly after this time.
