Carabao Cup final tickets are now the hottest topic of all.

Tuesday night watching Eddie Howe and his players get the job done.

Newcastle United fans: Top 10 fairest ways to allocate Carabao Cup final tickets

experience

On the basis that they should be prioritized as least likely to be there for future cup finals…

The oldest 30,000 people (assuming for the purposes of this article that’s how many NUFC Carabao Cup Final tickets) who can prove they’re a Newcastle United fan get a ticket.

youth

In recognition of having endured nothing more as adults than the Mike Ashley era before these last 15/16 months.

Only those who were under 18 years of age in May 2007 can apply for the 30,000 tickets.

50 words

The club gives an email address and each Newcastle fan has 50 words to explain why they deserve a ticket more than any other Newcastle supporter.

Then Amanda Staveley reads them all and gives the 30,000 (or however many) entries to the top 30,000 followers.

price

The club is allowing all Newcastle United fans to bid on tickets to the Carabao Cup final.

If say there are 30,000 tickets available, the highest 30,000 bids get the tickets, and the excess cash over the face value of the tickets will help buy more players and deal with FFP.

local

Tickets are for the 30,000 people who currently live closest to St James’s Park.

Ensure NUFC has the best possible local following at the final.

going green

The 30,000 tickets are allocated to Newcastle fans who live closest to Wembley.

Thus reducing our NUFC carbon footprint as much as possible.

hunger games

At half-time on Saturday during West Ham’s game at St James’ Park, all 30,000 tickets are placed in the center circle.

With the referee’s whistle, the fans allowed onto the pitch and if they can get back to their seats with a ticket, they will go to the final.

Wor flags can be used as Hunger Games-style weapons to “dispossess” another fan.

If you know your story

At half-time during the West Ham game on Saturday, Ant and Dec take to the pitch.

Each seat has been equipped with a means to enter your answer.

Questions will then be asked about Newcastle United’s history, getting harder and harder, until only 30,000 remain who have not got the answer wrong.

Keepie Ups

After Saturday’s game against West Ham, 500 fans were allowed onto the pitch at a time.

Each fan is assigned a ball and if they can keep it in the air for 20 touches without the ball hitting the turf, you get a ticket.

You only get one time, but if 30,000 don’t make it, then it becomes sudden death to get the remaining tickets, everyone is given a second/third/fourth try in the same order, until all tickets are allocated.

Be strong Be proud

With the team needing the most support at Wembley, surely the 30,000 who can give the best vocal support should get the tickets.

So on Saturday, when Newcastle fans enter St James’ Park for the West Ham game, there is a soundproof booth inside each turnstile. Members/ season ticket holders who were unable to attend this West Ham match will be checked via zoom call. The 30,000 measured as the strongest, get the tickets.
