Wolves are heading to the north east this weekend to take on Newcastle United as they look to extend their unbeaten run to eight matches in all competitions.
A sold-out allocation of more than 3,200 supporters will travel to the Premier League clash to give their backing to Nuno Espirito Santo's side, who are looking to make it four away wins on the bounce following Thursday night’s dramatic second-half comeback in Slovakia to beat Slovan Bratislava in the Europa League group stages.
Supporters who are attending St James' Park for the 2pm kick off on Sunday 27th October should be aware that there are 140 stairs and 14 landings up to Level 7 seating where the visiting Wolves fans will be located.
The stadium is located close to the junction of Gallowgate, St James’ Boulevard and Barrack Road –just a 10-minute walk from Newcastle Central Station and around five minutes from Monument Metro Station and the city’s major bus stations. Supporters can simply follow the pedestrian signs located throughout the city centre to make their way to the ground.
There are no unreserved public car parks on matchdays at St James’ Park and traffic restrictions may be in place. Instead, it’s strongly recommended that supporters use public transport to reach the stadium.
There is also a park and ride system from two sites close to the A1 motorway – from Newcastle Great Park (close to the Newcastle Racecourse) and the MetroCentre; one of Europe’s biggest shopping centres.
St James’ Park has two of its own external bars, while there are other pubs and bars close by, but some may restrict entry for visiting fans – particularly those wearing club colours.
Visiting supporters will be located on level 7, and fans attending the game need to be aware that there are 140 steps and 14 landings on the way up to their seats.
Supporters who are disabled, have mobility issues or are concerned about the climb can use the nearby lift. Stewards on the day will be on hand to direct any supporters wishing to use the lift.
