Newcastle United are moving forward with plans for the expansion of St James’ Park, as the Magpies look to make it the second biggest stadium in the Premier League.
Initially reported by Telegraph Sport, the development is looking to focus on the Gallowgate End and the East Stand, which are both smaller than the other two stands in terms of height.
Inevitably, as the club has improved on the pitch, the demand for tickets has also increased with the club now competing in the Champions League and pursuing honours near the top of the Premier League.
Under Eddie Howe, the club made it back into the Champions League this season for the first time since 2003 and made the League Cup final last season. The move would be welcomed by fans as the demand for tickets has elevated significantly amidst a new era for the club.
The Magpies have also enjoyed success on their return to the Champions League, having drawn with AC Milan and defeated PSG on a historic night for the club as they look to continue progress in European competition.
