Newcastle v Liverpool tickets have finally gone on sale, but NUFC want Liverpool fans to keep out of the Newcastle section.
The tickets finally went on sale at 10am on Thursday morning, only nine days before the match.
It has ridiculously taken the Premier League until Saturday night to decide who would play when, moving three different games to maximise TV exposure, whilst claiming it was all to do with helping English clubs in European competition.
When announcing when tickets would go on sale earlier this week, Newcastle United predictably warned Liverpool fans not to try and buy them.
As the tickets were due to go on sale this morning, NUFC have added extra conditions to ticket sales.
As well as only paid up Newcastle United members being able to buy them, the club have said that for this game only members who have bought a ticket for a game earlier this season, will be allowed to purchase tickets.
Newcastle United announcement today (Thursday 25 April 2019):
‘Tickets will only be sold to NUFC members with a recent purchase history, at a maximum of two tickets per person.
In order to buy tickets, members must have a valid 2018/19 season card or membership, and members must have made a ticket purchase during the 2018/19 season.’
It isn’t difficult to imagine why they have done this, as in the possibility of Liverpool fans recently buying NUFC memberships in order to get hold of tickets.
