Newcastle fans turn on Ashley as club continues to charge season ticket costs
Newcastle United owner Mike Ashley has seen his conduct during the coronavirus pandemic questioned again – this time over the club’s policy regarding season ticket charges.
On Wednesday, Magpies fans discovered that payments destined for 2020-1 season tickets had been taken from their accounts via direct debit.
In some cases the charge for the entire season was removed, more than £500, in spite of the fact that the current season has been halted due to the pandemic and no official word has been released on when it will restart – or how this will affect proceedings in 2020-1.
The decision to charge fans, moreover, comes at a time when due to the disease and quarantine measures thousands of UK workers face uncertain job futures.
As a result, Newcastle United fan groups – Toon For Change and the Newcastle United Supporters Trust – urged the Magpies to refrain from charging fans at this point.
Their protests fell on deaf ears though, prompting the Supporters Trust to release a stinging letter against Ashley.
“Last week Newcastle United Supporters Trust (NUST) contacted Newcastle United Football Club to express significant concerns regarding Season Ticket payments. We did not receive a response.
