Newcastle Membership Guide

If you are a Newcastle fan, the chances are that you are loving life right now. Since the club was taken over by its new Saudi owners, the Toon Army have been on a magical ride, which saw them reach the 2023 Carabao Cup Final and earn a spot in the 2023/2024 Champions League.

In a short space of time, the club has gone from perennial relegation candidates to a team that will now regularly compete at the top end of the Premier League.

With an abundance of stars such as Anthony Gordon, Alexander Isak and Bruno Guimarães, the clamour for Newcastle home Premier League tickets has never been greater. 

Whilst the only way to guarantee yourself a seat for every Newcastle home game is via a season ticket, for those unwilling to pay for a season ticket, becoming a member can be a much cheaper way to watch the beloved Toon in action.

In this guide we will reveal everything you need to know about Newcastle membership, including how much it costs and some of the benefits it provides.

What official Newcastle membership packages are there?

Unlike most other rival Premier League clubs that have a huge host of different membership packages that can be purchased, Newcastle has just four packages consisting of two adult packages and two junior ones.

Newcastle Adult membership: Everything you need to know

The Newcastle Adult membership package costs £37 for the year and comes with a range of benefits, which include the following:

  • Digital Membership card
  • Priority access to tickets for home matches via a ballot system

Newcastle International membership: Everything you need to know

For Newcastle fans outside of the UK, Newcastle’s exclusive international membership package can allow those from further afield to still feel a part of the action. Costing the same as adult membership for those within the UK at £37, here are the benefits that are included:

  • Digital Membership card
  • Access to home matchday tickets
  • Access to exclusive competitions
  • 25% discount on stadium tours
  • Opportunity to vote in the International Supporters Player of the Year Award

Does becoming a Newcastle member guarantee me tickets?

Although becoming a Newcastle member gets you closer to the action, there is no guarantee that you will be able to get tickets throughout the season. 

Unlike other clubs that issue priority tickets, Newcastle members will be entered into a ballot system. Members will be made aware of when the ballots will take place and will need to give their permission to be entered. Once entered, those who have been lucky enough to win tickets will need to pay for the tickets before they receive their digital tickets for the game.

A small number of resell tickets will be provided for each game. These resell tickets can be purchased by both UK and International members.

If I receive a priority ticket, will I get to choose where I sit?

The ballot will be for every part of the ground. Although you won’t be able to choose where you wish to sit, tickets should be up for grabs in the Gallowgate End, Milburn Stand, Leazes Stand, and East Stand.

Do I need to pay for a ticket once I get one?

Yes, if you win a ticket through the ballot or in the resell portal you will need to pay the full price for the ticket.

Can the cost of my Newcastle membership increase?

The costs of all Newcastle membership packages are reviewed annually, and there is a chance that the cost of membership could go up. Over the last few seasons the prices of all membership packages have increased by £2.

It’s important to note that membership automatically renews every season, and payments will be collected by direct debit. 

Before your payment is debited, you will get an email prior to the due date. This email will inform you when the payment will be taken out of your bank account and if there have been any increases in cost. 

If the club increases its membership fees and you don’t want to continue your membership, you will need to cancel it by the preset date; otherwise, your bank will be automatically charged. Payments are usually taken in June.

Can I stagger the cost of my Newcastle membership like a season ticket throughout the year?

No, unlike season ticket payments, which can be split over the course of a season, if you decide to become a Newcastle member, you will need to pay for your membership in full as soon as you decide to purchase it. It should just take minutes for the payment process to complete.

Can I become a Newcastle member at any point in the season?

Unlike some clubs that have unlimited access to membership, all memberships at Newcastle are capped. So, if you want to become a member, make sure you visit the website in the summer when memberships are released to ensure that you can secure your place on the membership list.

If the club membership is full, you will be notified on the club website and informed when the membership window is reopened.

Is there a waiting list for becoming a Newcastle member?

No, there isn’t. If membership packages can be purchased, you can buy one right away. If the membership is full, you will need to wait for the membership window to reopen.

Will becoming part of an official Newcastle membership package help me get a ticket for Cup finals or away games?

As per the policies of most Premier League clubs, if Newcastle were to reach a Cup Final, the tickets for the game would be reserved mainly for season ticket holders. Final tickets are awarded on a points basis, and it’s highly unlikely that a member will ever have enough points to qualify for tickets to a Cup Final.

Away games follow the same premise, with a ticket allocation being awarded to those who hold the most points.

Can I get access to hospitality with a Newcastle membership?

Although there are many perks that come with an official Newcastle membership package, most hospitality packages aren’t included. However, there is a discount on matchday food and drink for the 30 mins after the ground opens and there are packages available at Shearers Bar which is one of the most popular bars outside of St James Park.
