The tie at St. James' Park is set to see the team reach a key milestone, as they look to surpass 100,000 spectators at their games at St. James' Park. Attendances within their last three outings at the stadium have seen over 74,000 fans watch Becky Langley's side, with the unrivalled support setting league attendance records.
Commenting ahead of the game, Newcastle United Women head coach Langley said: "We're really looking forward to the opportunity to play at St. James' Park again. For those that are Newcastle-born players, to those that have joined us this season, there is going to be a lot of excitement.
"We've got a team full of passionate players who give everything for that black and white shirt; that's what we've built the past few years upon.
"With it being a cup competition, I know the Geordies will get behind the team and hopefully get us to the final. We want to lift the trophy at the end of the season, so the support is massively valued. It would really give us that extra ten per cent.
"We want to get the biggest crowd we can: if we can get over 30,000, I think that would be brilliant."
The clash against Portsmouth will be the team's fourth appearance at St. James' Park, where they have attained an impressive 100 per cent win record in their previous three outings.
The inaugural women's first-team match at St. James' Park saw 22,134 fans attend a 4-0 league win over Alnwick Town Ladies in May 2022, before a crowd of 28,565 witnessed the side secure Women's FA Cup progression via a 2-1 victory against Barnsley Women in December 2022.
Their most recent appearance at the stadium came in a comprehensive 6-1 triumph over Bradford Women in front of 24,092 supporters last April, during the team's league title-winning season.
Digital ticketing will be in operation and are on-sale now, priced at £5 for adults and £1 for concessions, whilst matchday prices will increase to £8 adults and £2 concessions, with cash turnstiles in operation at the North West corner of St. James' Park.
