Newcastle United co-owner targets 13,000 attendance increase at St James's Park

Mehrdad Ghodoussi has challenged Newcastle United supporters ahead of Sunday’s match at St James’s Park.

Newcastle United Women’s team are set to smash their 22,134 attendance record against Morpeth Town back in May when they return to St James’s Park against Barnsley in the Vitality Women’s FA Cup second round this Sunday (2pm kick-off).

Last season’s attendance set a record for a league match in women’s football across the UK last season. And the club has already confirmed that over 25,000 tickets have been sold for the cup match.
