Falcons confirm trio of home pre-season friendlies

Tuesday 04 July 2017 Written by: Adam

On Saturday August 12 the Falcons will host a double-header at Kingston Park Stadium, taking on Greene King IPA Championship sides Doncaster Knights at 2pm and Nottingham at 4.30pm.

That will be followed on Saturday August 19 when Rotherham Titans are the visitors in a 4.30pm kick-off, preceded by the Blaydon v Glasgow Hawks curtain-raiser.

The Falcons will play a final pre-season game away from home the following weekend, with details of that match to be announced once the venue and kick-off time have been confirmed by the host club.

These games are your chance to get a first look at a Newcastle squad fresh from a highest Premiership finish in 11 seasons, and with a host of exciting new signings having been made.

Summer arrivals include Canada’s record try-scorer and Pro 12 winner DTH van der Merwe, three-time French champion Maxime Mermoz and returning fly-half Toby Flood, as Dean Richards’ men look to continue their on-field improvements.

Newcastle Falcons’ 2017-18 season ticket members are entitled to free entry for all three of the home friendlies.

Only the West and East Stands will be open, therefore season ticket members in the South and North Stands are asked to contact the ticket office to be upgraded to the West Stand.

These upgrades will be on a first come, first served basis, and you will receive a paper ticket for the seat you have been allocated. You can contact the ticket office by emailing **fans@newcastle-falcons.co.uk** , calling 0871 226 6060 or visiting in person during opening hours.

Season ticket members in the East and West Stands are also asked to contact the club via the same channels before noon on August 9 to confirm their attendance, after which point those seats will be made available for general sale.

Non-season ticket members can buy tickets for the August 12 double header for £10 adults and £5 juniors, with the same prices also applying for the visit of Rotherham on August 19.
Reserved seating is in operation for all three games, with tickets allocated on a ‘best available’ basis.

Season ticket memberships are available for the 2017-18 season by calling 0871 226 6060 or [**clicking here**,][1] with adult prices starting from just £198 standing and £339 seating.
