Bad news for Mike Ashley as new figures reveal how many season tickets have been left unsold

After what looks set to be our most shambolic summer yet under Mike Ashley, Newcastle fans are fighting back – with it revealed that over 13,000 season tickets are currently left unsold.

Season tickets were put back on general sale on Sunday after the deadline passed for existing holders to renew their seats earlier this month, and, as a result, we are able to see how many have been left unsold.

As revealed by the Mag, here are the number of season tickets now available in each section:

  • Level 7 Milburn/Leazes – 2,868 seats available
  • Rest of Milburn – 2,239 seats available
  • Rest of Leazes – 3,327 seats available
  • East Stand 1,999 seats available
  • Gallowgate 2,980 seats available

TOTAL: 13,413.

With these new figures in mind, it’s time to keep the pressure on and keep doing out bit.

If you’ve renewed, join us in #BoycottArsenal and spend the afternoon watching the game with friends/family in a local pub or bar instead. You may feel Ashley already has your money, but he will HATE the ground looking half empty in front of the Sky camera. It’s never a good look.

If you’ve not renewed, do the above and join @EmptyForAshley’s campaign, with them getting several pubs/bars in the city offering special offers to fans and free entry to watch the game against Arsenal on their screens.

Another point, and this one’s key – don’t fall for any last minute buys Mike Ashley may sanction. We’ve all seen the rumours tipping us to make a big money move for Joelinton, but any late deals in the transfer market will only be papering over the cracks in what has been a truly shambolic summer so far.

Not matter who we sign, this man has allowed Rafa Benitez to leave, he’s put season ticket prices up, he’s charing £65 for our new kit and, just to rub it in, he’s allowing a world class manager to be replaced by Steve Bruce.

12,000 Newcastle fans travelled to the San Siro back in 2003 to watch us in Champions League action. Little over 15 years later and there’s now more than 12,000 season tickets unsold.

That pretty much sums up the Mike Ashley era, with him now seeming set to replace a world class manager in Rafa Benitez with a Championship boss in Steve Bruce.

  1. Both myself and my Mate have our Season Tickets but that wont stop us both Boycotting the Arsenal game or any other game when a Boycott is planned .. please dont spend any Money in the Stadium or his Shops. The look of a lot of empty seats in the Stadium on TV will not look good on Ashley he will hate it..

  3. ed, we follow and support the team, not the owner, been doing so since the 60s, nufc have a history of bad owners, look back to the late 70s and 80s, never changes, so until some one comes in with the money and buys the club, who wants to win something, and not like 99% of them now, who just what to line there pockets with premiership money, so I will keep going to support the team along with thousands of others.
    So if you don’t what to go, well don’t go, but don’t tell us not to go, there is always Sunderland down the road, if you what a club with good owner, because that all you think about the owner of the club, not the team.

  4. You haven’t been supporting or watching then as long as me. Of course it’s your choice to attend or not, just pointing out the future. If you want me to buy you a Mackem shirt just leave an address, I’m sure I’ll make you out in the crowd
