A packed St. James' Park

By Dan King - Newcastle United Club Reporter

Next month's Tyne-Wear derby against Sunderland is a sell-out - less than six hours after tickets went on sale.

They were released to Members only at 10am on Wednesday and supporters queued, telephoned and logged onto the online Box Office in their thousands.

Club Members receive priority on all home games and tickets are restricted to one per Member. With big games against Liverpool and Arsenal approaching, a Membership is the only way to make certain of a seat and avoid disappointment.

A Newcastle United membership runs for 12 months and can be purchased online by clicking here. In addition to receiving a Membership pack and priority access to all tickets, Members can benefit from a range of benefits including 50 per cent off food and drink in the concourse for the first 30 minutes after the gates open on a matchday.

Memberships are active immediately and Members can save money on tickets for all home matches as well as paying no booking fees on home match tickets as opposed to £1 per ticket paid by non-Members.
