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
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.
