The announcement to play at St James’s comes following Newcastle United co-owner Amanda Staveley’s plans to elevate the women’s team.

Speaking at an FT Live event earlier this month, she said: “I’m passionate to get the women's football really moved back into the heart of the club.”

Cash turnstiles will open from 12:30pm with tickets costing £3 for adults while under-16s and all concessions go free. Newcastle United Women season ticket holders will also gain entry without having to purchase an additional ticket.
