European rugby finals tickets on general sale
Tickets for the 2019 European Rugby Champions and Challenge Cup finals at St. James’ Park are now on general sale.
The matches form part of European rugby’s biggest weekend and will take place at the home of Newcastle United on 10th and 11th May 2019.
As well as being the home of Newcastle United, St. James’ Park has become a key rugby venue in recent years.

The stadium hosted Rugby World Cup matches in 2015, including world champions the All Blacks, as well as Newcastle Falcons’ victory over Northampton Saints in the Big One in 2018 and rugby league’s Magic Weekend for the last four years.
Season ticket holders have already had a weeklong priority period for the 2019 European finals, with access to a golden ticket for the same seat at both matches.
In between the two headline matches at St. James’ Park, Newcastle Falcons’ Kingston Park Stadium will play host to the European Rugby Continental Shield on Saturday lunchtime, which will be contested by the two teams chasing qualification for the following season’s European Challenge Cup.
