More than 52,000 Newcastle United fans will watch the side in Carabao Cup Quater Final action at St. James’ Park on Tuesday, and are being asked to bring a specific item to the stadium.

Newcastle United fans have been sent a special request by supporters' group Wor Flags as tickets to the Carabao Cup Quarter Final clash with Leicester City at St. James' Park sell out.

The last remaining tickets to watch Eddie Howe's side in cup action on Tuesday, January 10 went on general sale on Wednesday morning and took just two hours to sell out.

The 52,000 fans going along to the knockout game next week have been sent a message from Wor Flags - the group behind the immersive and emotive pre-match displays within the stands at St. James' Park.

The group are asking spectators to bring their black and white Newcastle scarves to the game to make for a rousing atmosphere, a request backed by the football club.

In a message posted on social media, Wor Flags wrote: "On Tuesday night we are at St. James' Park for the first time in 2023 and we are asking you to #bringyourscarf. Led by Eddie Howe, we are dreaming of a first major trophy since 1969 and a return to European football. In fact, as a city, we are not just dreaming. This city is believing again.

"This is our first home quarter-final with a crowd since 2006 and our biggest game in years. Let's make home advantage count and show our belief in this group of players and management.

"We'd like to create a sea of black and white to welcome the lads onto the pitch and make it a special night under the lights.

"We all remember the incredible scenes of scarves twirling at Alan Shearer's testimonial and we want to take that inspiration on Tuesday night.

"Be part of something special. #bringyourscarf and most importantly; bring your voices. Howay the lads."
