Newcastle United tickets & prices at St James' Park

If you are a Newcastle fan or simply following your team for an away match at St James' Park, there are various tickets from which to choose one that suits your needs. Let's go through the list below.

Newcastle United season tickets: Pricing, availability

The only way to guarantee a match ticket for every single Newcastle game at St James' Park is to purchase a season ticket. All season tickets were sold out for the 23/24 season and the club don't operate a waiting list, meaning that season tickets will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis each summer should any become available.

Prices of season tickets rose by 5% for adults for the 2023/24 season but Newcastle still have some of the cheapest season ticket prices in the Premier League. The cheapest season ticket at St James' Park for an adult costs £438 while the most expensive is £852.

Newcastle United matchday tickets and single-match tickets: Pricing, availability

If you don't have a season ticket, then you will have to buy a matchday ticket on a game-by-game basis. Purchasing single-match tickets can be tricky at Newcastle with the vast majority of matches going to a ballot to allocate tickets. In order to be eligible for the ballot, you need to be a member of the club with only a small number of games going to general sale.

Should you be successful in the ballot, then you will be presented with the opportunity to purchase home tickets. Ticket prices differ based on the category of the game and the whereabouts in the stadium you want to sit. For Category A fixtures – those against the likes of Manchester United and Manchester City – adult tickets range from £32-70 while junior tickets range from £17-38.

Do I need a membership to buy Newcastle United tickets?

Technically speaking it isn't essential to have a membership to buy Newcastle United tickets, however, having one significantly increases your chances of getting tickets. The ticket sales process for each home game follows the same pattern – members are invited to enter a ballot for tickets and those who are successful are then given the opportunity to purchase tickets.

If any tickets are left remaining after the member's ballot then members are then given another opportunity to purchase tickets, this time directly via the online Newcastle ticketing platform where any remaining tickets will be listed. It is only after this stage that non-members are able to purchase tickets but it is very rare that it ever gets to this point.

How to get a Newcastle United membership?

Newcastle United memberships can be purchased via the club's official website. Unlike other clubs, Newcastle don't have various levels of membership. Instead, they have one membership type for adults for the 23/24 season which costs £37 and one membership for junior supporters which costs £20.
