In May 2008, former chairman of Newcastle United Football Club, Chris Mort announced plans for Leazes Corner, at St James' Park stadium, Newcastle to become a 'singing corner' for fans.
Mort told the Newcastle Chronicle: "Over the course of the year I’ve spoken to lots of fans about how we can improve things at St James’s Park. Two themes have regularly cropped up in those conversations."
"One was somehow creating a section in the ground where like-minded fans – who enjoy singing – can come together to generate a great atmosphere and get behind the team for 90 minutes."
Thus, the singing section at Leazes Corner was endorsed by Newcastle United Football Club and embraced by the fans. Many supporters, particularly those who currently hold season tickets in Leazes Corner feel that the corner is a success and the atmosphere in the stand is one of the best things about the home match experience.
N.B. Please specify if you are currently a season ticket holder at St James' Park within the comments section, including the area/stand in which you sit. This will help us to identify the strength of feeling within existing season ticket holders.
