Just the Ticket-Stoke Update & Chelsea

The priority period ends this Saturday (8th August 2009) for those Clarets fans with 2000 or more loyalty points wishing to go the openning game of the 2009/10 against Stoke City at the Britannia Stadium on the 15th August.

After this time there is expected to be a limited number of tickets available for those with 1000 Loyalty Points or more.

These will go on sale at the Ticket Office ONLY on Monday 10th August from 9:15 am until they are all sold.

The Club state they only expect about 200 tickets to be available so there is likely to be the typical scrabble for tickets with fans getting them on a first come, first served basis.

Clarets fans are asked to check the website on Sunday over the weekend to ensure tickets are still available.

You will only be able to purchase one ticket

Prices are as follows: Adults 25; Over 65s 19; Under 17s 15; Under 11s 12.

The club have also announced Ticketing details for the match against Chelsea on Saturday 29th August at Stamford Bridge (12:45 pm Kick-Off)

The club have received just 3000 tickets.

Tickets will go on sale on Wednesday 12th August 2009 but only to holders of 2,000 Clarets loyalty points or more and only via postal application.

Postal applications will have to state your Clarets Number, your name and address and contain a cheque (not cash) for the correct amount plus a stamped, self-addressed envelope.

A limited number of tickets will also be made available for Foundation members and shareholders on a first come first served basis.

Supporters with 1,000 loyalty points or more should tickets still be available will be able to apply by postal application from Thursday 20th August.

Prices are as follows:

Upper Tier

Adults 47
Senior Citizens & Juveniles: 19.50

Lower Tier

Adults 44
Senior Citizens & Juveniles: 19.50

All sales will be strictly on a one supporter, one ticket basis.

Some of us lesser mortals may stand a better chance of getting a ticket at those prices for Chelsea providing we remortgage our house. Premiership? You are having a laff!!

Blimey Charlie ! I've lived in London for nearly 20 years now and have watched football at lots of grounds but when I saw those prices they made me think twice. Best part of 100 for an adult and two kids. Add on travel for those coming down from Burnley and this starts to get very expensive. Think a few of us have already made the point that tickets will start to become available for games now as people just won't be able to afford to attend as many fixtures as they would want.

The price of being on the promised land! sadly most folk can't afford them prices the Chelsea ticket alone is a quarter of the the average wage a week in Burnley! i don't hold much hope of getting to many games this season and i live local! maybe hoping to catch one or two B games or maybe cup games,hindsight would have been a good thing having bought tickets last season without getting any points for them! still i can't complain this is where we all want us to be and with a bit of luck we will still be there next season.

The Chelsea match will at least be covered by ESPN if anybody knows how to get access to it live and/or record it

47! Wow thats alot for a ticket. I'm not going to get near anyway not enough loyalty points. Feel a bit like 8clarets8 all the games I have been too where I have just paid on the day in the last few seasons. Hindsight is a wonderful thing. ESPN is another 9. Hmmm might sign up for a month.

On the upside to being in the Premiership you can get live streams of every Burnley match not always the best but beats the radio

If I think of Chelsea as 47 to get in and 40 to get there, how many months of ESPN can I get for that? Anyone know anything about ESPN? A mate said last night he thinks he gets at least some of it for free on Freeview, but I think that might be after a few (loyalty) pints! The 1245 KO doesn't help. I might try the Foundation Office for a Chelsea ticket; and I might not; and I might not be bothered if I try, but fail. I was chatting with the Fndn Office yesterday. 47 is a bit more than a day's work there, and they don't seem to have been paid any overtime for all the extra work this summer. Is that right? Meanwhile Clarets World or whatever it's called and then Football First is a more than fair alternative to the Bridge. I'm told live streams are easy enough to get too, but I think I prefer Bird.

Don't quote me on this but i think ESPN is 10 a month 8 if you already subscribe to Sky Sports and i think the first month is free! CP you could still listen to Mr Bird whilst watching a stream of the game just mute the sound on it ;-)
8clarets8
Good point 8c8, but they aren't quite in synch are they? Sometimes I listen to Bird and watch SKY Soccer Saturday, and their announcement of the goals can come a few moments ahead of the commentary! And not being blessed with the greatest eyesight, it's quite nice just to lie back, shut my eyes and listen sometimes. Meanwhile, for the price of a trip to Chelsea I can get ESPN for a season? Something to think about. Finally, I would want to add, about my chat with the Fndn Office, the person I spoke with there was not complaining at all, and made the point that if you work in places like footy clubs you expect to do some work for the love of it... or words to that effect. But I still think they should have been given something for all the extra work this summer.
Couch Potato
I suppose the problem with ESPN is that so far only one match involving Burnley (Away to Chelsea) has been announced. The other two announced so far are on Sky (Sunderland, Rovers)
turfmanphil
I think that if you are going to pay 44 for lower tier you may as well pay 47 for upper tier. That's what us Sheffield Clarets are planning to do, anyway! See you there!
BarnseyWTBM
Not fussed which tier as long as there no tears at the end! ;-)
