Newcastle United fans must now buy their tickets in person.

Tomorrow, Newcastle United play against Preston North End in the English League Cup. So far, the magpies have been a dominant force in the tournament and it’s unlikely to stop now. But the club may be set for another big performance in terms of attendance.

The club had announced earlier today that 40,000 tickets for the match — to be held at St. James Park — against Preston. While the club averages almost 50,000 per match this may seem small to you. But 40,000 tickets bought before a match is a huge number. Thousands more often get their tickets at the gate.

That’s exactly what has to happen now as well. That’s right. The club can’t service fans through its online website for tickets. So if you’re desperate for a ticket to watch Newcastle play Preston, I recommend you turn off your computer, get in your car, and drive down there right now and grab your ticket before it’s too late!
