Newcastle United have been given less than 2,500 tickets for the club's EFL Cup quarter-final against Hull City.

The two clubs were last week drawn against each other at the 25,000-seater KCOM Stadium in the last eight of the competition.

And Hull have given the club a 2,474-ticket allocation for the tie, which is being played on November 29 (7.45pm kick-off).

Newcastle had attempted to secure a larger allocation for the game at the KCOM Stadium.

But the club today confirmed that "no additional tickets will be made available by Hull City".

Tickets will go on sale to season-ticket holders with 100 or more loyalty points tomorrow at 10am.

There are 969 tickets, priced £9 for all ages, available for United supporters in blocks N6 and N7 at the KCOM Stadium.

Tickets for blocks NE1, E1 and E2 – which will house up to 978 Newcastle fans – are priced at £12 for all ages.

The remaining 527 seats in block E3 will also go on sale tomorrow, priced at £15 for all ages.
