Newcastle United has issued a warning to fans about ‘illegal’ ticket sales through third-party platforms.
Newcastle game tickets have appeared on unauthorized websites and through third parties, frequently at astronomically inflated prices. The club has acknowledged that it cooperates with the appropriate authorities to stop such unlawful ticket sales.
Over the summer, the club made a number of adjustments to its ticketing process. Season ticket holders can no longer transfer their tickets to friends or family more than ten times throughout a season; instead, a new digital ticketing system and ballot procedures have been implemented for members wanting to purchase seats.

As a result of ticket re-sales, the club has issued a warning to supporters to only purchase Newcastle tickets from the official site.
“The only place to purchase official tickets for matches at St. James’ Park is via, and entry to the stadium is now only possible with a secure digital ticket,” a club statement read.
“The club has made improvements to its ticketing system this summer to not only enhance the matchday experience at St. James’ Park but to ensure loyal supporters who have eligibility to buy tickets – as recognised by the club’s long-standing loyalty points system – have their priority access protected.

“For season ticket holders who are unable to attend a home match, they can now use the club’s official reselling platform to sell tickets directly to eligible members at face value.

“Any tickets purchased from third-party websites are invalid and will not operate at the turnstiles at St. James’ Park, preventing entry and preventing refunds.

Season ticket holders who are discovered to be selling tickets in this manner will have their ticketing accounts stopped immediately, which may result in cancellation.


Additionally, fans have been advised to contact to report any unauthorized sales.


All of Newcastle’s home games have been sold out so far this season, but the club’s most recent away game at Brighton had a few empty seats due to rail strikes and the rollout of the new ticketing system.
