The board of Gateshead Football Club have taken the difficult decision to review our match ticket and season ticket costs ahead of our return to the National League.
This was not a decision taken lightly and the directors wish to stress that we have taken into account the current financial climate and the cost of living crisis that has impacted so many people around the country.
The increases in match day ticket pricing are the first implemented by the club in seven years, and our season ticket prices work out at £13.82 per adult, £8.48 concession and £5.45 per student – a saving ranging from £59 to £119 across the season.
The successes of last season will live long in the memory and the hard work of Mike Williamson, Ian Watson, the coaching staff and players has taken the club back to the highest tier of non-league football for the upcoming campaign.
We will put our full support behind Mike and Ian and we also realise we have to pull together as a club and a community to meet the obvious challenges that lie in wait in the National League.
We are looking forward to seeing our supporters getting behind the team once again as we embark upon our fourth year as a fan-led club, and representing our town and region with pride.
Full details of the new pricing for match tickets and season tickets, and information on a new four-month payment plan for the latter, can be found below.
We would like to reiterate this is not a decision the board have taken lightly, and we pride ourselves on the close relationship we have developed with the local community since taking control of the club three years ago.
This is and always will be ‘Wor Club’ and we can’t wait to see the International Stadium getting behind Mike, Ian and the lads once again as we take on the National League next season.

The club wishes to help supporters with the cost of season tickets, so we have made a decision to introduce an option to spread the cost of your season ticket purchase over a four-month period at a slight increase to cover the additional processing fees.
Adult: £77.00 x 4

Student: £32.00 x 4

At request of several fans, we have introduced a Seat Reservation Scheme, which allows you to reserve your normal seat at a cost of £50.
This will include a personalised sign being attached to your seat which coupled with your season ticket will guarantee that seat for all National League fixtures, and also includes cup games if accompanied with the relevant match ticket and your season ticket.
