Its a New Day, its a New Dawn..
Its a new dawn, its a new day, its a new life for me yeah, its a new dawn its a new day its a new life for me ooooooooh and I'm feeling good
For you oldies like me, you will know that the above words are some of the lyrics from one of Nina Simone's classic songs.
How very apt they have now become with the club announcing its 'New Dawn' package for the 2008/9 Season Tickets. An initiative that also includes the intention to set up a 'Singing Section' in the NU2 and NU3 sections of the James Hargreaves Upper.
This is excellent news and something a number of fans groups have been wanting for some time including in recent times Burnley Ultras.
The intention is for like-minded fans wishing to sing their hearts out, to be able to sit together in blocks and raise the roof.
The club however have emphasized that this will still have to be a seated arrangement with no standing allowed. It is however a good start and the club have clearly been listening to the fans wishes.
Hopefully some day we will also finally be able to announce the introduction of limited standing and a return to some of the terracing beloved by many fans of a certain age!
The New Dawn package also offers a good deal for children. Kids aged 8 and under will be entitled to a free season ticket. Families with two or more children aged 8 and above will also be able to claim one free season ticket. Also Early Bird tickets for the 16-18 age range have been reduced with all other ticket prices frozen.
If the club fail to get promoted this season, the Club have once again announced they will offer a free season ticket for 2009/10 if we get promoted to the Premier League next season.
