Children aged 12 and under will be able to attend Newcastle United’s Emirates FA Cup tie against Oxford United this Saturday for just £1.

The special incentive is running for a limited period of time and subject to availability.

More than 45,000 tickets have already been sold for Saturday’s fourth round clash and the club has reduced prices further for youngsters wishing to come along to St. James’ Park.

Lee Charnley, Newcastle United’s managing director, said: “We wanted to do something a little bit extra to give more young fans the opportunity to come to St. James’ Park and be part of what we hope is a really good cup run.

“We want to give the FA Cup everything we’ve got and hope everyone who comes plays their part by really getting behind Steve and the team.

“We have already shown a commitment to making cup tickets accessible and the reaction has been fantastic.

“We hope this extra step will ensure even more young supporters and their families can be at the stadium on Saturday as we look to reach the fifth round.

“I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Oxford United for their support in the pricing for this game and this initiative.”

How to buy

Tickets will be available at this special price on Thursday, January 23, and Friday, January 24.

They can be purchased by calling 0344 372 1892 or by visiting the St. James' Park box office (Milburn Stand) in person. This offer is not available online.

Please note that all supporters aged 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult.

Adult ticket prices remain priced at £10 – the cheapest possible adult price under competition rules – and £5 for other concessionary categories.

Adult tickets remain available by telephone, online at book.nufc.co.uk or by visiting the St. James'

Park box office (Milburn Stand) in person.

If you have already bought junior tickets

Supporters who have already purchased tickets for those aged 12 and under before Thursday, January 23, can take their valid junior match ticket to the club shop on Saturday, January 25 (matchday) and present it for a discount of £5 off all items.

One ticket can be used per transaction. This discount is available in-store only and is not available online at nufcdirect.com.

There is no minimum spend required in order to be eligible for the discount, however should the selected item cost less than £5, please note that no change will be given.

Oxford United supporters will be able to claim a free hot dog or vegetarian equivalent for under-12s at concourse kiosks on Saturday upon the presentation of a valid junior ticket.

Matchday prices WILL rise

There will be no cash turnstiles on the day of the game and supporters are strongly encouraged to buy or collect their tickets at the earliest opportunity.

On the day of the game, prices will rise to £20 for adults and £10 concessions, as they did against Rochdale.

By incentivising supporters to buy early at a lower price, the club greatly reduces the large and unnecessary queues at turnstiles and collection windows that have resulted in fans missing the opening period of previous cup fixtures.

Please note that this fixture is not included as part of supporters' season tickets or half-season tickets.

Original platinum bond holders do not need to take any action - their paper tickets will be posted.

Hospitality

Hospitality is available from £150 per person and be booked by calling 0191 201 8444.
