Newcastle United can today announce an addition to their pre-season friendly schedule, as they travel to Hartlepool United on Tuesday, 7th August.
Kick-off at Victoria Park will be 7.30pm and will see Alan Pardew's Magpies take on Pools, who ply their trade in League One.
The game comes three days after Newcastle return from Den Haag, in Holland, and will provide excellent preparation to their warm-up match against Cardiff on Saturday, 11th August.
It is expected to give some of the Club's youngsters and squad players the chance to impress Pardew and his coaching staff.
Tickets for the fixture are priced at £10 for adults and £5 for children, and there are no student concessions.
Newcastle United supporters will be located in the Niramax Terrace and the Niramax Stand, which has a capacity of just under 3,500. Cash turnstiles will be in operation.
If required, Hartlepool can also open the Smith & Graham Stand behind the goal, which would open up an extra 1,000 seats to visiting supporters.
