Burnley Football Club has announced that due to unprecedented season ticket sales 1,500 new season tickets will be made available for general sale.
Home supporters will now occupy a section of the David Fishwick Stand, which has long been reserved exclusively for the away fans at Turf Moor.These seats will be the closest seats to the James Hargreaves Stand and up to the tunnel area. Hopefully there will now be a more rousing reception for the Clarets from behind as they walk onto the pitch, with Clarets fans now competing with away fans in that stand to make more noise.
Clarets manager Owen Coyle is the champion for this initiative and wants to turn Turf Moor into a cauldron of noise on all four sides of the ground!
Coyle talking to the Official Site said:
'I have pressed long and hard for the club to release 1,500 more season tickets to ensure that the David Fishwick Stand is not taken up by 4,000 away supporters and I am absolutely delighted with this news. Last season the Clarets' supporters truly were our 12th man at Turf Moor and their backing helped us to reach the Barclays Premier League.I'm sure the extra 1,500 season tickets, plus the 15,000 we have already sold, can only help us to stay there'
Many old Clarets of a certain age like me will remember the days when the Clarets fans occupied that end before and after the current Cricket Field Stand was built but sadly over the years it has suffered from the elements and most recently from wayward parachutists landing on the roof!
Oh well those seats still look comfortable dont they?
