Newcastle Utd. F.C
The 'Magpies' are as iconic to Newcastle as the Tyne Bridge and a source of extreme pride and occasionally heartbreak.
Newcastle United is more than just a football team to their supporters, more a sporting expression of their town and local identity – tough, industrious, committed but with plenty of style and quality.
The supporters are one of the most loyal and passionate fan bases within the English Premier League. In typical 'Geordie' spirit, the atmosphere is very good-natured, electric and surprisingly family friendly. If you choose to bring along your younger members of your family, you can rest assured that it will be a thoroughly positive and special experience.
The stadium is always packed, especially during big Premier League clashes, especially heated contests against Manchester United and Liverpool. The biggest and fiercest rivally for Newcastle United is undoubtedly against fellow Premiership side and close neighbours, Sunderland.
