Revealed! Newcastle United supporters face hike in costs for travel to away games with Manchester United, Everton and Leeds United also impacted by surging petrol prices

Newcastle United fans are set to pay almost £100 more for travel to away games this season than normal – all because of rising petrol prices.

Rising petrol prices are set to hit the pockets of football fans this season and it's predicted that Newcastle United supporters will be one of the worst hit.

Research conducted by Saxo Group has calculated the average amount each supporter of a Premier League side would have to spend on petrol to watch their team’s remaining away games this campaign.

Setting an average petrol price at 144.9p per litre and comparing that to a price of 127.89p per litre, the price at the end of last campaign, here, we have detailed this research, highlighting just how much more fans will have to pay to watch their side this season.
