Newcastle United’s FA Cup third round tie against Cambridge United is set to be a sell-out.

The Magpies will host the League One club on Saturday (3pm kick-off) and there are less than 500 tickets - which are all in Level Seven - available for home supporters at St James Park.

The U’s are also set to be backed by a strong travelling contingent after with around 4,500 of the 5,000 tickets they were allocated for the tie now sold. The remaining tickets are on general sale and are priced at £11 adults and £6 concessions.

However, those prices will increase to £20 adults and £10 concessions if tickets are bought on the day of the game.

The two sides have not met at St James Park since November 1992 when a David Kelly hat-trick and a late goal from Gavin Peacock helped Newcastle to a 4-1 win in the old Division One.

Kevin Keegan’s side completed a league double over the U’s later in the season and moved a step closer to promotion into the Premier League as Steve Howey, Andy Cole and David Kelly all found the net in a 3-0 win at the Abbey Stadium.

Saturday’s game will be the first FA Cup tie between the two sides. Tickets are available to purchase here and supporters can also find details of current Covid-19 procedures in place at St James Park.
