Singing section returns
Written by Lee Marshall
Newcastle United have launched an official singing section at St. James' Park ahead of the 2017/18 Premier League season.
The section will be located in the upper tier of the Gallowgate End following consultation between the club and supporter groups Wor Hyem 1892 and Gallowgate Flags.
With space limited across most areas of the ground, available space was identified in block V of the Gallowgate during a stadium visit by both groups and the process of moving their respective members has commenced.
Wor Hyem 1892’s Mac McEvoy said: “We are massively excited about the return of a singing section at St. James’ Park.
“Our fans are known for their vocal support and alongside Gallowgate Flags, we wanted to create an area for likeminded fans to really kick-start a positive atmosphere across the stadium.
“We’d like to thank the club, who have been very receptive to the idea, and everyone involved with Gallowgate Flags. We can’t wait to be back in August.”
Gallowgate Flags’ co-founder Alex Hurst said: “Everyone at Gallowgate Flags is delighted that we’ve created a singing section inside St. James' Park alongside Wor Hyem 1892.
“Over the last season we have worked with the club to foster a positive visual displays for home games and now that likeminded supporters can be grouped together, the atmosphere will only get better.”
How to move to the singing section
All supporters wishing to move into the section alongside likeminded fans are now able to do so by emailing their name and supporter number to firstname.lastname@example.org, using the subject line ‘Singing section’.
Supporters wishing to be relocated alongside friends and family are asked to include all relevant supporter numbers in a single email using ‘Singing section’ in the subject line.
The club will endeavour to move all fans requesting the move at no charge (standard seat move charge is £25) and seats will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
Please note that supporters intending to move from a lower category of seating will have their payments amended to category two pricing.
