Tickets for the Troops
Newcastle United Supporters are being asked to show their recognition for members of HM Forces by donating ticket stubs from the abandoned Fiorentina pre season friendly to a supporter led initiative which will distribute FREE tickets to Military personnel and their families for a future Newcastle United league game.
The initiative, led by the supporters' coalition group NUFC Fans Utd will see Newcastle United exchange the ticket stubs for free admission to a future Newcastle United game and it is hoped that as many fans as possible who attended the Fiorentina game will donate their ticket stubs.
The coalition acknowledges that many fans may wish to use the stubs themselves, but others may already be attending games at St James’ park as season ticket holders and therefore have no need to take up the offer of free admission to a future game using the Fiorentina ticket exchange scheme put in place by the Club.
Anyone wishing to donate their ticket stubs to this supporter led initiative can do so by following the advice on www.nufcfansutd.com
A spokesman for NUFC Fans Utd said; we hope that supporters get behind this initiative and donate their spare ticket stubs from the Fiorentina match so that as many members of HM forces as possible can be invited to attend a future game.
NUFC Fans United is a coalition of supporter groups representing fanzines, bloggers, online forums and various supporter led organisations who have come together and are all committed to the aim of developing and building better communications with the Club; seeing communication as the key to the Club's relationship with supporters going forward.
