Newcastle Thunder fans’ 14 month wait for a return to Kingston Park Stadium is almost at an end, as the club prepares to welcome back supporters later this month.

Following confirmation from government, supporters will be able to attend the Betfred Championship round seven fixture against Halifax Panthers on Sunday 23rd May. Tickets go on sale on Thursday 13 May from 10.00.

Spectators will be hosted in the West Stand and Kingston Park Stadium during the 2021 season, with all seating on a reserved basis to comply with public health track and trace requirements.

Tickets will be limited, with a maximum of 1,200 (including those for season ticket holders) expected to be available for the visit of the Panthers.

Single match tickets are available to purchase by clicking here, with the following prices in effect.

Adults = £20

Concessions = £17

Under 16s = £5

Season tickets for the 2021 season remain on sale and continue to offer the best value way of ensuring access to all remaining Betfred Championship matches this season. With three games having been played behind-close, prices for season tickets are now:

Adults = £120 

Concession = £95

Under 16s = £40

Community U16 = £25 (must be a registered member at a local community rugby rugby)

To purchase season tickets, please email tickets2@newcastle-falcons.co.uk to arrange a call back.

With sport gradually finding its way back to normal, there will be a number of changes to how ticketing for Newcastle Thunder operates in the short to medium term.

One of the main changes is there will be no one the day ticket sales from the stadium box office until further notice.  With track and trace requirements needing all tickets to be assigned to the supporter using them, all bookings must be booked via the club’s online box office.

Tickets will be sent to supporters via email, with a digital / pdf ticket available that will be scanned at the turnstiles on arrival to the ground.

To help manage the flow of spectators and allow the club to ensure the safety of everyone attending, entrance times into the stadium will be staggered, with these clearly indicated on match tickets.

Supporters who have purchased a season ticket for the 2021 season will be allocated tickets to the game first, ensuring they have the best available seats in the West Stand and will also receive their match tickets digitally.
