Thomas Cook Sport have unveiled their specially-catered Europa League travel packages for Newcastle United fans – but uncertainty remains on the availability of tickets.
The TCS website lists two packages, to Bruges and Bordeaux but also states that “Match ticket may be subject to qualifying criteria set by the club.“
There is plenty of speculation as to what criteria you’ll need to satisfy to be allocated a ticket for the match, with some sources suggesting the bar could be as high as 100+ loyalty points.
It looks like loyalty points will be used and that only seems fair in the circumstances.
For fans who decide to book travel through the Thomas Cook Sport website, their package will be cancelled if they fail to get a ticket. For those travelling independently, ticket details from NUFC’s end remain TBC.
Meanwhile, over in Belgium, Toon fan Wilf McFarlane has been in touch with Club Brugge and they tell him that “there won’t be any information released on tickets until after 19th September.“
