Newcastle Falcons' efforts to attract a sell-out crowd for the “Big Night Oot” against Exeter Chiefs on November 18 have got off to a flying start, with over 500 tickets sold since the launch of the promotional campaign.
After showing an 18.3 % rise in attendances versus the first three Aviva Premiership Rugby matches of season 2015/16, the club has set itself the target of attracting a capacity crowd of 10,200 for the first time since 2008.
With a full month to go, strong early sales have put that target firmly within reach, ensuring the teams will take to the field with an atmosphere befitting a game billed as the 'Big Night Oot'.
Falcons' head of marketing, Melanie Magee, said: “The response to the game has been exceptional with the amount of tickets we’ve sold in the first week, with these mainly coming from early ticket sales, season ticket holders taking up tickets either as part of the 500 @ £5 offer or their Tight Five ticket, and the last few places in our hospitality suites.
“With groups like rugby clubs and schools also getting in touch with enquiries for bookings, we’re looking forward to the crowd growing rapidly and for the game to get underway in front of a full house.”
