Durham Women to host Newcastle United as fans welcomed back

  • +1

Durham Women will finish their pre-season campaign against Newcastle United on Sunday, August 22 (12pm kick-off).

The friendly will act as the Wildcats’ final warm-up game ahead of the 2021/22 season and will also be the first time that supporters will enter the club’s home ground at Maiden Castle – as they watch the side for the first time since February 2020.

The game will be the first time that two sides have played publicly and will give Durham fans a first in-person look at the side following a successful 2020/21 campaign, in which the club finished second in the competitive FA Women’s Championship.

Lee Sanders’ side have already undergone a gruelling pre-season schedule including a number of competitive friendlies, and will now complete their preparations with what is sure to be a fascinating North East derby.


Due to this being the first test event held at the ground, tickets for the game will be limited in number and so supporters are encouraged to purchase their tickets in advance HERE.

Please note that Sister Club and RTC discounts will not be applied for this fixture.

Tickets are priced at the following rates:

Adults – £7
Students – £5
Children (U16) – £3

A small number of tickets will be available on the day of the game but these will be allocated on a first come, first served basis following the turnstiles opening at 11am. Cash, card and contactless payments will be accepted.

We do, however, strongly advise supporters to purchase in advance to avoid disappointment.
