Premier League Asia Trophy tickets on pre-sale

Tickets for the Premier League Asia Trophy 2019 are now on pre-sale, offering football fans in China amazing value for money.

This is the first time the tournament will be played in two different locations, with Newcastle United competing for the trophy alongside Premier League champions Manchester City, West Ham United and Wolverhampton Wanderers over two action-packed evenings in July at Nanjing Olympic Sports Center and Shanghai Hongkou Football Stadium.

Each daily ticket provides access to both matches on that day. Ticket prices start from just 88 RMB (£10) for the opening fixtures in Nanjing. Tickets for both the third/fourth place play-off and final in Shanghai start from 288RMB (£32).

Premier League Interim Chief Executive Richard Masters said: "Through the Premier League Asia Trophy we are committed to giving as many fans as possible the opportunity to enjoy the Premier League experience in their own country.

"We are delighted to be bringing this year's tournament to both Nanjing and Shanghai, and to be able to offer fans in China the chance to watch a host of world-class talent in action at truly affordable prices.

"In Manchester City, we have the Premier League champions taking part, and three other excellent clubs in Newcastle United, West Ham United and Wolverhampton Wanderers. I have no doubt fans can enjoy exciting and competitive football across all four matches."

While the below tickets are available to supporters of all clubs, the Newcastle United box office will be selling tickets from a club allocation from Tuesday 14th May 2019 (time TBC).

This is the ninth edition of the Premier League Asia Trophy (previously Barclays Asia Trophy). Newcastle United are taking part for the second time after finishing runners-up in the inaugural competition in 2003.

Manager Rafa Benítez said: "The Premier League Asia Trophy is an important time in our pre-season preparations. Playing against quality teams in front of our fans in China will be a great experience."

The Premier League Asia Trophy is part of the league's ongoing commitment to fans in Asia and to supporting the development of football at all levels in China. As part of this, the Premier Skills programme has reached more than one million young people and trained more than 5,000 coaches and referees in 23 cities across China since 2007.

The Premier League also assists China at an elite level through a formal partnership with the Chinese Super League and Chinese FA to help improve the professional game in the country. This bond was further strengthened in 2016 through the UK/China Football Forum and now has a renewed focus on youth development.

In relation to this, a full programme of football development initiatives is planned leading up to and during this year’s tournament, including coach education, referee training, a youth tournament and a youth development conference.
