DRESS REHEARSAL: MAGPIES AT 3

City complete their pre-season schedule against Newcastle on Saturday
Following the huge success of Friday evening's inaugural #ilovethecity2012 event, attention turns back to the serious business of football on Saturday afternoon as Newcastle United arrive at Cardiff City Stadium.
The Magpies ended last season's Premier League season in fifth place after a fine campaign under Alan Pardew. Senegalese striker Papiss Cisse exploded into the limelight with thirteen goals in fourteen games, while the uber-talented Hatem Ben Arfa, Demba Ba and Yohan Cabaye stole the back pages countless times throughout the term.
But while excitement for the new season on Tyneside is high, that fervour is more than equalled here in the capital city of Wales. Malky Mackay has added six new signings already this summer as the revamped Bluebirds prepare for another gruelling Championship campaign.
Tickets for the game, kicking off at 3pm, are available to buy on the gate. As previously announced, ticket pricing is as follows:
Adult Season Ticket Holders: £15
Under 16 Season Ticket Holders: £5
Adult non-Season Ticket Holders: £20
Under 16 Season non-Season Ticket Holders: £10
Come and back the Bluebirds ahead of next Friday's Championship opener here at Cardiff City Stadium against Huddersfield Town!
And be sure to pick up your souvenir match-day programme, priced at just £2.50!
