Some Newcastle United fans may have been feeling delighted after reading the news that the Tyneside club have finally chosen to refund their season tickets, as per the Magpies’ official website.
Should the Newcastle season tickets be refunded?
Supporters who have purchased their tickets for this season will not be able to attend the remaining games due to the global pandemic, but until now they were still being charged.
Mike Ashley was often blamed given that he is still the current owner of the football club as the proposed takeover at St. James’ Park has not yet been approve by the Premier League.
The Toon are the last club in the English top flight to have confirmed the refunds for the campaign, but some NUFC fans may feel a sense of relief now that the saga is finally over.
Newcastle restart their 2019/20 term at home against Sheffield United behind closed doors, as has been previously followed by the examples of Aston Villa hosting Chris Wilder’s Blades and Manchester City facing Arsenal.
However, as per the club’s website, refunds for the upcoming 2020/21 season will not be issued at this current moment in time for those fans who have been paying through Direct Debit.
The supporters from the North East may feel that this is the next step as to win them over given the uncertainty around who exactly is going to be the owner, as Amanda Staveley’s Saudi Arabian-led group look to finalise their £300 million bid and finally end Ashley’s reign of 13 years on Tyneside.
Nevertheless, some of them may feel delighted by the news that tickets for this season will be refunded at least.
