Premier League. Sheffield United game sold out, ballot to open on Friday

14 Sep 23

The latest from the Box Office ahead of Blades battle

The Magpies take on the Blades at Bramall Lane on Sunday, 24th September (kick-off 16:30 BST) and tickets sold out on Thursday, 14th September.

Following supporter consultation there will be a limited allocation open to season ticket holder ballot for those who do not meet the away points threshold.

This will open at 10am to those with 0 to 29 points that do not have a ticket on Friday, 15th September and close at noon on Saturday, 16th September. Those successful will be notified by 1pm on Monday, 18th September.

Supporters will be asked to input card details. If they are successful in the ballot, payment will be taken and the season ticket holder will be notified by email. Those that are unsuccessful in the ballot will not be contacted and will not be charged.

All tickets for this fixture will be in the form of paper. Please note all tickets are for the sole use of the supporter making the purchase under their Newcastle United supporter number and are strictly non-transferable. There will be random spot checks at away stadiums throughout the season and failure to produce appropriate ID matching the purchaser supporter number will result in removal of your loyalty points and/or your season ticket being voided.

Children under the age of 14 are not permitted to attend unless accompanied by an adult aged 18 years or over.

Automated turnstiles are in operation; to minimise queuing, supporters should have their ticket ready as they approach the turnstile and insert the barcode into the reader.

PricesAdult: £30Senior (over 60): £2318-21 years and full-time students: £20 (proof of concession in the form of a valid student card to be presented upon request at the turnstiles)Under-18: £14Disabled adult: £23 and age appropriate as above


Each member has a unique supporter ID and can therefore only register once for the ballot (so if you are included in a group application, you cannot also make an individual application at the same time). The maximum number of supporters who may be included within a ballot application is six.

If you wish to be included in the ballot so that, if successful, you would be seated together in a group with friends and/or family members, then you must register all of the proposed members of that group in one application only.

To apply for friends and family members, they must be season ticket holders and be linked to your account via the 'My Friends & Family' option within your online ticketing account. Please ensure that, before submitting a group application as lead applicant, you have (i) completed and checked this in your account settings and (ii) obtained the prior consent of those friends and/or family members on whose behalf you are applying.

It is imperative that you check and select the correct age band for each ballot applicant, since failure to do so may result in an unsuccessful application.

Each applicant (and, in the case of a group application, the lead applicant submitting on behalf of the group) will need to enter credit/debit card details when submitting a ballot application. No payment will be processed at the point of registering in the ballot.

If you are successful, the automated balloting system will automatically allocate you (and in the case of a group application, each of the members of that group) a seat which could be in any of the available seats.

Once the deadline date has passed for ballot registrations, the ballot will be drawn randomly. The season ticket applicants who are successful in the ballot will automatically have their credit/debit card payment charged for the total cost of ticket(s) allotted (including applicable booking fees and delivery fees). Each successful applicant (and, in the case of a successful group application, the lead applicant submitting on behalf of the group) will receive a confirmation email.

If your payment is not successful the Box Office will contact you. You will then have 24 hours to complete payment following initial contact. If payment is not received by this time, the tickets will be re-balloted and allocated to another eligible supporter.

If you do not receive an email then, unfortunately the number of ballot applications received has exceeded available ticket capacity and you have not been successful. Supporters can check whether or not they are successful in the ballot via the 'My Account' option within their online ticketing account.

Please note: travel groups are not in operation for the ballot allocation.
