Newcastle United Foundation release Magpies matchday mindfulness track to relive home game routine

Thousands of Newcastle United supporters missing matchdays with friends, family and fellow fans can experience the sounds of St. James’ Park through a mindfulness audio track recorded by Newcastle United Foundation.

The seven-minute clip follows the familiar routine of home games – from catching a Metro with mates to picking up a programme and hot pie before sitting in the stadium and hearing Local Hero, the whistle blowing and the famous Gallowgate roar.

The unmistakable sounds of a United matchday were captured by the Foundation for the charity’s Be A Game Changer mental health awareness campaign, encouraging football supporters to speak openly about their wellbeing with others.

The audio experience provides listeners with a moment of mindfulness and can be used to relax by taking less than ten minutes out of a stressful day to relive happy memories.

The track also aims to reduce feelings of loneliness and isolation for supporters during lockdown by recreating the chatter and companionship of visiting the stadium with friends or strangers united by Newcastle.

Be A Game Changer is funded by Newcastle City Council, North East and North Cumbria Suicide Prevention Network and Premier League Charitable Fund to raise awareness of mental health issues and reduce the region’s suicide rates among men aged 20 to 49.

The match was recorded during Newcastle United’s 2019/20 campaign, before supporters were unable to visit St. James’ Park with all Premier League games played out behind closed doors since June.

The Be A Game Changer mindfulness audio track is free to listen to at any time via Newcastle United Foundation’s YouTube channel.
