Newcastle United: Fans fume as Alex Hurst relays club stance on season tickets

Newcastle United: Fans fume as Alex Hurst relays club stance on season tickets - Newcastle United

Many Newcastle United fans are fuming as the chair for the NUFC Trust Alex Hurst relayed information regarding the season ticket situation at the Tyneside club.

As was discussed on Pod On The Tyne (via The Athletic), the club are continuing to take money off the supporters in terms of season tickets for the next campaign, despite the takeover situation still looming large over the North East.

question mark

Which of the following players was never signed by Kevin Keegan for the Toon?

If the deal goes through, then Mike Ashley will not be the owner at St. James’ Park anymore, yet members at the top of the club’s hierarchy are still taking cash off of fans, to which Hurst believes is ‘unjustifiable’ and implied that they do not care about the supporters as much as they perhaps should.

This was a similar view shared on the podcast, to which the situation was further branded as ‘arrogant’, ‘condescending’ and ‘nasty’.

Indeed, the Saudi-led consortium, backed by the country’s Public Investment Fund (PIF) and head-hunted by businesswoman Amanda Staveley, are trying to take NUFC off of the hands of the likes of Ashley in time at least for next term to start.

Are the club right to take money off fans for next season?
