NUFC Attendance Figures - 1049/19

Date Responded 23 August 2019

Provision of information held by Northumbria Police made under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (the 'Act')

As you may be aware the purpose of the Act is to allow a general right of access to information held at the time of a request, by a Public Authority (including the Police), subject to certain limitations and exemptions.

You asked:

The number of supporters who attended Newcastle United vs Arsenal on Sunday 11/08/2019 at St James Park. By this, I mean the 'actual' number of supporters who attended and not the 'official' attendance figures published by Newcastle United Football Club


In Response:

I can confirm that the information you have requested is not held by Northumbria Police.

We do not hold ‘actual’ attendance figures. Northumbria Police hold only figures as published by the clubs, and which are freely available by simple research or by contacting the clubs for that information.

Previous similar requests on this subject have been received and responded to recently with the same response as above and those are  published on the Northumbria Police Disclosure Log.  FOIs 092/18, 309/18 390/18 refer.
