Jason's Chelsea Money-Can't-Buy Experience
Newcastle United Member Jason Eley won a recent Money-Can't-Buy competition where he received a private stadium tour, a meal in the Director's Guest Lounge and tickets in the Director's Box for the Chelsea game. Here he shares his experience of the day...
I arrived at St. James Park at 10am and was taken to the Newcastle United changing room where I looked at all the players kits all set out for the match. I took as many pictures as I could, I then went to the dugout and bumped into Alan Pardew
who came over to speak to me and shake my hand. I was so happy to see him.
I saw all the newsrooms where Sky and BT Sport would interview the managers and players after the match. BBC radio even let me in their room and I tried all their recording gear on.
Then I was taken to have some lunch and to warm up, as it was very cold outside! Once I was warmed up I went back down to the dugout to have more pictures taken and I bumped into Jose Mourinho! I was very nervous but he signed my match programme and I had my picture taken with him.
After all the excitement I was taken to my seat in the Director's Box; they were the best seats in the stadium. Then to top it all off Newcastle beat Chelsea 2-0 - it was the perfect ending to a perfect day! Thank you Newcastle United for giving me such a brilliant day.The chance to win Money-Can't-Buy experiences are just one of the benefits available to Newcastle United Members.
