Newcastle In Dispute over FA Ruling

Newcastle United could be set to receive dispensation from the English FA over the proposed move of away fan’s at St James’ Park.

New Premier League guidelines, which come into play in August, state that all top flight clubs must provide a pitch-side section of their ground for away fan’s.

The club, however, have provided safety reasons for ensuring that any away fan’s remain in their natural position of level seven in the Leazes end of the ground.

As well as concerns about not being able to properly segregate fans if they are nearer the ground, there is also the problem that those Newcastle fan’s who have been seated in that particular section will have to be moved to a different part of the stadium.

The move has been met with mixed reviews on social media with some fan’s thinking it would liven up the atmosphere and others not being happy at having to give up their seat for a possibly poorer view.



What’s your thoughts on the proposed move?

Would you be in favour of moving the fans pitch side even though home fans will need to be relocated?
