Saints fans who travelled to Newcastle earlier this season will be awarded a partial refund on their ticket costs, after the Premier League upheld a complaint from the club.

Saints approached the league after discovering that their supporters had paid “significantly” more for entry than home fans housed in the same section of the ground.

The Premier League agreed that they had been overcharged, meaning all of the 1,180 people who travelled to St James’ Park for the 1-1 draw on Saturday, December 14, will receive some money back from the Magpies.

Saints announced that the league have made the following adjustments:

  • Adults: £10 refund (£37 reduced to £27)
  • Seniors: £11 refund (£33 reduced to £22)
  • Juniors: £9 refund (£22 reduced to £13)

The Saints ticket office will contact supporters affected in the coming week to discuss arrangements for refunding the money.

It is the second major boost in a few days for away fans.

On Saturday, Saints revealed that they were subsidising tickets and travel for the trip to Swansea, on Saturday, May 3.

Adult tickets will be £5, with those in the under-16 and over-65 categories priced at £1.

Coach travel is also available at £5 for adults and £1 for under-16s.
