Arrangements for the sale of tickets for the Camerons Brewery Brooks Mileson League Cup final were announced by the Northern League today.
The final between North Shields and South Shields is on Saturday, May 6 at Hillheads Park – the home of Whitley Bay FC. The match kicks off at 3pm.
Tickets will go on sale at the Seahorses clubhouse next to the ground from Sunday, April 30. They will be available at:
Sunday, April 30 and Monday, May 1 from 3-8pm
Tuesday, May 2 to Friday May 5 from 4-8pm
On the advice of the police, this is an all-ticket match. Tickets can only be purchased with cash.
Tickets are priced at £6 for adults and £4 for senior citizens and children under 16.
Tickets will be sold on a first come first served basis. The dates and times of sales are subject to ticket availability. There will be no limit on the amount of tickets individuals can purchase. The league will announce on social media as soon as possible if all tickets are sold before the last session.
There will be no entry without a valid ticket – this includes children.
Spectators are requested to bring the correct change where possible.
While the Ebac Northern League recognises the decision to make tickets only available from the venue for the final may cause some inconvenience to supporters of both clubs but we were left with no other option after both clubs informed us that they were unwilling to sell tickets without receiving a payment for doing so from the proceeds of the final, which the competition rules don’t allow.
Hillheads Park is at Rink Way, off Hillheads Road, Whitley Bay NE25 8HR.
If the final is level after 90 minutes, the final will be decided by penalty kicks.
