Some Newcastle United fans have been buzzing as news emerged from the BBC about the Tyneside club being accused of a ‘dereliction of duty’ over their season ticket plans for the next campaign.
As per the outlet, the Newcastle United Supporters’ Trust (NUST) sent a letter last week asking for confirmation of refunds, with games set to be played behind closed doors.
Should the tickets be refunded?
It also wants season ticket payments for the 2020/21 term to be paused, as most clubs in the Premier League have said they will refund or credit season ticket holders for behind-closed-doors matches.
The Magpies are yet to announce their plans, as The Trust’s letter, addressed to Lee Charnley, comes at a time when the team and supporters are anxiously waiting on a proposed £300 million takeover to be cleared by the top flight.
The deal, in which owner Mike Ashley would be replaced by a consortium backed by Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund (PIF), is being checked under the league’s owners’ and directors’ test.
These members of the Toon faithful buzzed on Twitter as they seemed to appreciate their voices being heard:
Well done bbc, about time you had our backs
