By Annis Abraham
Championship club Newcastle United have asked Cardiff City for an allocation of up to 10,000 tickets for their match which has now been changed to a Friday night.
Cardiff City stadium holds 33,500 and the Bluebirds currently average about 16,000.
The away end holds about 2,300,but can be increased like it was for Aston Villa fans who brought 3,358 fans.
Apparently Cardiff are working on being able to give the North East Club 8,000 tickets and are expected to let them know this week.
Newcastle have asked for such a large allocation of tickets despite the match being changed to a Friday night,live on tv and an over 600 mile round trip.
Cardiff City’s final home game of the season against promotion-chasing ‘ Newcastle United ‘ has been brought forward for TV coverage.
The Bluebirds were due to face Rafa Benitez’s side on Saturday, April 29 at 3pm.
But the club have announced that the fixture will now take place the night before, on Friday, April 28 kick-off at 7:45pm., so it can be broadcast live on Sky Sports.
