Newcastle face Leicester tonight in the Carabao Cup and St. James’ Park is the host ground, although it seems that the fans aren’t all pleased with the ticketing of the game.
Tickets for tonight’s cup game are still available, priced at £20 for adults and £10 for concessions. The box office is open now.

The Magpies have been trying to stage protests against owner Mike Ashley by organising boycotts, although none have come to fruition yet. Now, though, it seems they’re taking issue with the ticketing.
The club tweeted ahead of the Leicester clash that tickets are still available and will be on sale at the ground ahead of the clash with the box office open, although the price of £20 is putting fans off.
You can see what they have to say here:
Can’t sell them at £10 so put them up to £20. The epitome of greed

The fans are clearly far from happy with the ticketing situation and it seems a lot of them are not bothering as a result.
