Falcons to return to St. James' Park in 2019
Newcastle Falcons will return to St. James’ Park on Saturday, March 23rd when they host northern rivals Sale Sharks in ‘The Big One’.
The Gallagher Premiership encounter is a 5.30pm kick-off, with last season’s match at the home of Newcastle United having drawn a club record home crowd of 30,174 for the 25-22 victory over Northampton Saints.
This season’s game once again falls on football’s international weekend, and Falcons director of rugby Dean Richards welcoming the return of the event.
“It was an incredible experience to be involved in last season’s fixture at St James’ Park and the chance to go there again is another fantastic opportunity for us and our supporters,” he said.
“The North East public are renowned for coming out and supporting major events, it will be a real celebration of rugby and to play at such an iconic stadium is a chance not to be missed.”
Newcastle captain Will Welch added: “I’m a lifelong Newcastle United supporter, I’ve gone there regularly from when I was a kid and it’s great that we will have the chance to return to St James’ Park.
“Last season’s game there was one of the stand-out moments of my career, captaining the side in front of more than 30,000 people, and I’m sure there’ll be similar levels of excitement around this season’s fixture.”
