St. James' Park

Attend an intense soccer game at one of the United Kingdom’s largest and oldest stadiums. See it perched on a hill in the city center.

St. James’ Park is a famous soccer stadium in far northern England. Home to the black-and-white stripes of Newcastle United Football Club, the arena has a seating capacity of 52,400. Cheer on the local side among fervent fans as they challenge their rivals in the Premier League.

The most important game of the year is usually against local rivals Sunderland. Check online for match dates and kick-off times. Capture photos of the iconic stadium as you arrive amid the bustling crowds. Note the statue of Sir Bobby Robson, who managed the team from 1999 to 2004. Listen to the chants and chatter of the fans and purchase a jersey to fit in.

Have a drink at a local pub after the game, when the atmosphere begins to mellow. The area was first used for soccer matches in 1880 and has gone through many stadium transformations and renovations since then.

Learn the facts and figures behind Newcastle United, a club that is among the most well supported in the country. They are known affectionately as the Magpies, in reference to their colors. Other groups occasionally use the stadium for sports games and musical concerts.

Prices for tickets vary greatly depending on the seats. Most games take place on the weekend, but occasional midweek games take place in the evening. Purchase tickets from the box office, which is open from Monday to Saturday from mid morning to late afternoon. Book a tour of the stadium to see player dressing rooms and dugouts and meet a Newcastle United player.

St. James’ Park is northwest of the Monument area of central Newcastle. Arrive at the St. James metro stop beside the stadium or walk north for 10 minutes from Newcastle Central Station. Nearby landmarks include Newcastle University, Leazes Park and St. Andrews Church. On match days when traffic and parking can be chaotic, take public transportation for convenience.
