There has been a five point drop in the number of away loyalty points required to apply for tickets to Newcastle's eagerly-anticipated Europa League group match away at Club Brugge next month.
Season ticket holders with 70 or more away loyalty points can now buy tickets for the match at the Jan Breydel Stadium on Thursday, 8th November. Despite pleas from the Club for more tickets, United were allocated the minimum of 1,470 seats for the fixture.
Supporters with 75 or more away loyalty points who have already applied through either Newcastle United or official travel partners Thomas Cook Sport are guaranteed a ticket for the match, and these will be posted out in due course.
Applications are now being invited from season ticket holders with 70 or more away loyalty points, through either Newcastle United or Thomas Cook Sport.
However, the remaining tickets are severely limited, so potentially not every applicant at this points level will get one. Should the Club receive more applications than available tickets, they will be allocated strictly to those with higher points totals.
As with the European away games at Atromitos and Maritimo, an application form must be downloaded from nufc.co.uk and tickets are restricted to one per season ticket holder.
Forms will not be accepted unless travel detail and accomodation arrangements are complete. The closing date is now Sunday, 14th October.
Prices are £33 with no concessions. Supporters who are successful will be informed after the closing date via a further update on nufc.co.uk and will then receive their tickets by mail.
