Supporter Charter

Newcastle United is proud to be at the heart of its city and community.

We are 'open for business', communicating and dealing with all our supporters, partners and suppliers in an inclusive and respectful way.

We display pride and passion in our work and in recognising our corporate social responsibility we act as an inspiration for our people and the wider community. We are United.

Newcastle United operates clear ticket policies that outline the minimum level of service that a supporter can expect to receive when dealing with the club.

Ticket Information
The latest ticket news, including ticket prices, is available from the Box Office, in official club publications including our matchday programme, by calling the ticket information line on 0344 372 1892 (Option 1, Option 1) and from tickets.nufc.co.uk.

Ticket Prices
The club offers a range of ticket prices to ensure that watching football at St. James' Park is accessible to as wide a proportion of our community as possible.

We operate a number of ticket price categories dependent upon the opposition and the day/time of the fixture. Ticket prices are announced on a match by match basis.

We offer the following concessionary prices (for season tickets):

  • Junior supporters (aged 17 years and under on 1 September of the relevant season) receive up to 50% discount on standard price.
  • Senior citizens (aged 65 years and over on 1 September of the relevant season) receive up to 25% discount on standard price.
  • Students in full time education receive up to 25% discount on standard price.
  • Disabled supporters receive up to 50 per cent discount on the equivalent price. (Subject to a questionnaire completed by a doctor). Carers are admitted free of charge. Please note that disabled supporters aged 12 and under must be accompanied by a paying adult. 

Concessions for single match tickets are the age at the time of purchase.

Concessionary prices are available in all areas of the ground. Please note that we must see valid documentation to support any discount applied and that the management's decision is final.

We are committed to encouraging greater numbers of families to St. James' Park and have allocated over 15% of the stadium capacity (over 8,000 seats) in the Milburn Stand and Leazes northwest corner to family groups and junior supporters. Pricing in this area has been adjusted to make attendance as accessible as possible.

Visiting supporters are accommodated in the Leazes Stand (Level 7) with tickets available on a sale or return basis.

Away ticket prices are the same as those prices charged to home supporters in comparable seating accommodation. All concessionary rates are also available to visiting supporters.
Up to 15% of ground capacity is available for 
away fans in FA Cup and Carling Cup competitions. In this instance away fans will be allocated the Leazes stand (Level 7), and other adjacent areas.

Access to tickets
Tickets go on sale for home matches up to 6 weeks prior to the fixture.

Tickets are sold in the following order:

  1. Members - Priority period
  2. General Sale - Online only
  3. General Sale - Online, Telephone and Box Office

Tickets are available to purchase on the day of a match from the match day Box Office, situated in the Milburn Stand opposite turnstiles 75-78.

Matchday ticket collections are made from the collection windows located on the upper concourse of the Gallowgate End (above the club store/Shearer's Bar) from three hours prior to kick off.

For collections, please bring proof of purchase and suitable ID.

Tickets go on sale for away matches up to six weeks prior to the fixture.

Tickets for away matches are sold in the following order:

  1. Season Ticket Holders
  2. Members

Away tickets are sold in stages. Season ticket holders with the highest number of loyalty points are usually first to ensure that supporters who have been to more games are rewarded.

One away loyalty point is allocated for every away game ticket purchased.

Season ticket holders can receive a maximum of one loyalty point per game.

Away matches then go on sale to members, followed by general sale subject to availability.

For non-UK matches the club may need details of supporters' passports and travel agendas.

Tickets for cup matches may go on sale closer to the date of the fixture due to the timescales between rounds.

Season ticket holders will be given a priority period during which they can purchase their seat and additional tickets, should they be available. Following this there will be a short sale period for members, then general sale subject to availability.

Persistent Standing
Persistent standing is NOT permitted in any part of the stadium. It is a breach of Ground Regulations and of the conditions of entry into the stadium.

Persistent standing causes an increased risk to public safety and also obstructs the view of others who do not want to stand, or are unable to stand.

The club requests that supporters do not persistently stand during matches and sit when requested to do so by stewards and other supporters.

Any supporters who persistently stand will be identified and sanctions will be taken against them.

Such sanctions may include:

  • ejection from the stadium
  • banned from future matches
  • removal of season tickets

Abandoned Games
The club's policy on abandoned games is as follows:

Spectators will be admitted to the rearranged fixture free of charge if the match is abandoned prior to kick off, including if the match is abandoned after spectators have been admitted to the ground, but before kick-off.

If a match is abandoned after kick-off, spectators will be advised on www.nufc.co.uk the ticketing arrangements for any rearranged fixture.   

Refund Policy
Tickets for home may be returned to the club for a full refund provided that tickets are received by the Box Office 72 hours prior to kick off.

Tickets for away matches will be refunded in full when received by the Box Office 72 hours prior to kick off where there is no liability on the club to pay the opposition club for the ticket.

Where the opposition club requires Newcastle United to pay for the ticket, we regret to inform supporters that no refunds are permissible.

Box Office Fees
The following fees apply for lost or forgotten season cards and match tickets:

  • replacement smartcard; first replacement £5, subsequent replacements £10 each.
    Stolen tickets will be replaced free of charge provided that a crime number is provided to the Box Office
  • replacement match ticket; £2.50 each ticket

The Box Office will apply the following administration fees for missed or failed/bounced payments

  • bounced cheque or Direct Debit payment £10
  • failed payment notification letter; 1st letter free of charge, subsequent reminder letters £10 each

Booking Fees
All purchases are subject to a booking fee of £1, except for members who, as part of their benefits, do not get charged any home booking fee and also save on the ticket price.

All away tickets purchased by season ticket holders and members are subject to a £1 per ticket fee.

Disabled Supporter Facilities
Disabled supporters can purchase season tickets or tickets on a match by match basis and receive a discount of 50% compared to the equivalent standard rate.

There is no limit to the number of tickets available to disabled supporters although St. James' Park can accommodate 234 wheelchair users and therefore tickets for this group of supporters are subject to availability.

Where a disabled supporter requires a carer, the carer will be admitted free of charge. Please note that disabled supporters aged 12 and under must be accompanied by a paying adult. These tickets should be purchased in person or over the telephone as they are currently not available to purchase online.

Proof of disability is required from those supporters wishing to purchase a disabled concession priced ticket. This could take the form of the following:

• Higher or middle rate disability living allowance issued by the Department of Work & Pensions Receipt
• Enhanced rate Personal Independence Payment (PIP)
• Registration document which certifies that you are Registered Blind or Partially Sighted
• Veterans Agency letter confirming War Disablement Pension
• Confirmation in writing from Social Services that the individual is included on their Deaf Register, or a letter or report from an aural specialist confirming that hearing loss has been recorded at 70 – 95 dBHL or worse
• Lower or higher rate attendance Allowance statement.
• If resident outside of UK, please use equivalent documentation.

NB: This list is not exhaustive and consideration will be given to any other evidence that can be provided.

Proof of eligibility for a disabled concession is required for the first ticket purchase per season only although the club reserves the right to request proof of eligibility at any time. Please note the decision of the Box Office manager is final in assessing eligibility for this concession rate.

The club encourages fans with disabilities to inform them of their personal situations in order to allow them to make the matchday experience as comfortable as possible.

Arrangements can also be made for any fan suffering from a temporary disability (e.g. broken leg/ankle) which could affect their ease of access to and from the stadium (subject to availability and sufficient notice).

Seating and positions available:
