Golden Tickets for this year's annual Magpies Christmas party will be dropping through the letterboxes of our youngest fans on Wednesday morning.
Last week, supporters aged 12 and under were invited to apply for a Willy Wonka-style Golden Ticket for this year's event, which will be held in the Bamburgh Suite at St. James' Park on Saturday, 8th December from 1-3.30pm.
A lucky few hundred have now been chosen at random and should be receiving their golden invitation through the post on Wednesday.
The eagerly-anticipated event will see appearances from first-team players as well as fun activities like a shot speed gun, video games, a penalty shoot-out and airbrushed tattoos.
Also this year, Newcastle United and Topps Match Attax are teaming up to offer Magpies members between the ages of seven and 13 a once in a lifetime opportunity to play Match Attax on the St. James' Park pitch during half-time at the Arsenal home game on 19th May. Topps will be attending the Christmas party, with two finals places to be won.
Anyone who is not currently a Member but would like to sign up so they can be included in future draws like this, can become a Magpie by clicking here. Membership can also be bought in Official Club Stores or by calling the Box Office on 0844 372 1892.
In addition to the chance to attend the party there are many other benefits including the chance to be a ballboy or girl and a pack featuring an exclusive NUFC sports watch, a Demba Ba and Papiss Cisse goals DVD, an autograph book, a certificate and a letter from Alan Pardew.
