Newcastle United have put Wear-Tyne derby tickets on sale to season-ticket holders with 100 or more loyalty points.

Steve McClaren’s side take on Sunderland at the Stadium of Light on Sunday, October 25 (noon kick-off).

Tickets are priced £39 for adults, £26 for seniors (aged 65 and over) and £15 for juniors (under-16s).

The threshold will drop to 95 loyalty points from October 1 and 90 points the following day.

Newcastle have lost their last five derby games against Sunderland, who are bottom of the Premier League with six games played.

United, 19th in the league, will make a another annoucement should the loyalty-point threshold for derby tickets drop further.
