'We Can Be Heroes'-Season Ticket Early Birds

'We Can Be Heroes'-Season Ticket Early Birds

Burnley FC have provided Vital Burnley with full details of the Early Bird Season Ticket Prices for next season. We announced a couple of weeks back that early bird prices would be frozen but now we have the full details and background to the deal.

You need to act quickly though if you want to take advantage of the special offer.The deadline has been set for 31st March 2011.

'We Can Be Heroes'-2011/12

Our illustrious history has created heroes.

Names from every era are etched in folklore.

But there`s another important 'player` in the ongoing story of Burnley Football Club...

Ask any player at Turf Moor and they will tell you there is nothing to beat the roar of a Turf Moor crowd getting behind the team.

That`s why your support is now more important then ever.

The all-too fleeting season in the Premier League has whetted the appetite for more.And with new manager Eddie Howe and the squad now at his disposal, everything is there for the taking.

Your support and the matchday atmosphere is vital to our success. And with Howe charged with reinvigorating the playing side, it means we are all set to enter an exciting time.

Who knows what the next 12 months will bring?

But if it`s anything like the last few years, we feel sure you will want to reserve your seat as the next chapter in Burnley`s history unfolds.

Price Freeze On All Season Tickets

To help you play your part, we have FROZEN all season ticket prices for the coming season for ALL supporters who renew, or buy a season ticket in the Early Bird period.

To give us time to plan and budget for the 2011/12 season, we have again set the early bird renewal deadline at March 31.

Existing season ticket holders have until this date to renew their season tickets.

After this cut-off point, the club reserves the right to release all unsold seats to supporters wishing to change seats.

In addition, further season ticket sales will be suspended until after the completion of the 2010/11 fixtures, when season ticket prices may be increased and any sales will be subject to availability and on a first come, first served basis.

Free Under 8`s

* these tickets are only available in the Family Stand (Jimmy McIlroy Upper Tier) and are only sold in conjunction with a full adult season ticket.(one free under 8 ticket per full adult ticket).

All of the family pricing initiatives introduced over the past few seasons will continue, including the 'Second Child Free` offer in the (Jimmy McIlroy Upper) Family Stand.

Pricing for 2011/12 will be:

Under 8`s FREE to Junior Clarets in the Family Stand 8 to 11 £50 for Junior Clarets in the Family Stand 12 to 15 £80 for Junior Clarets in the Family Stand 16 to 18 & Full Time Students £95 in the Jimmy McIlroy Lower Tier

The Small Print

Match Day Pricing

All match day prices will be reviewed at the end of the season. We can guarantee that all supporters who renew their season ticket by March 31, 2011 will pay significantly less for their season`s football than supporters who choose to pay on a match by match basis.

David Fishwick (Cricket Field) Stand

This area is not available for home supporters unless the club achieves promotion to the Premier League, when seat transfers to this area may be considered for season ticket holders only.

Jimmy McIlroy Upper Tier

Supporters are reminded that new season tickets and match day tickets are sold in this area on a 1 + 1 basis only i.e. adults must be accompanied by a junior supporter.

Age Concessions

To qualify for an age-related concession, age at the beginning of the season will determine whether the supporter qualifies for the concession or not (e.g. to qualify for a 16-18 concession, the supporter must be 18 or under on 1st August 2011). In order to qualify for any concessionary price, the supporter must provide proof of age in person at the ticket office.

Senior Citizens Age Limit

Senior Citizens who already receive an age related discounted season ticket will continue to receive that concession. However to fall in line with the Government`s harmonization of the retirement age, supporters must be 65 or older on August 1, 2011 to qualify for the senior citizens discount for the first time.

Disabled Supporters Prices

In line with advice from the Football League, disabled supporters will pay the full applicable price for their season ticket i.e. Adult, senior citizen, 16 to 18 or under 16, but those supporters who need a helper may receive an additional season ticket for the helper free of the charge (upon receipt of evidence of higher rate of disability). Each case will be assessed individually and you will be asked to provide proof that you need a helper.


In line with government legislation and Football League guidelines there is no smoking within the confines of the stadium. Please note that the club is obliged by law to take action against supporters who smoke within the stadium and could be fined if the problem is not addressed. The club therefore reserves the right to cancel the season ticket of anyone who persistently flouts the law in this way.

Free Season Tickets For Under 8`s and reduced prices for U12`s and U16`s

These tickets are only available in the Family Stand (Jimmy McIlroy Upper Tier), are only sold in conjunction with a full adult season ticket (one free under 8 ticket per full adult ticket) and are not upgradable or transferable on a match by match basis. The child must be registered as a Junior Claret and proof of age must be provided at the ticket office. The Club reserves the right to withdraw these offers after the early bird renewal period.

Reduced Price 16-18 Season Tickets

These tickets are only available in the Jimmy McIlroy Stand Lower Tier and are not upgradable or transferable on a match by match basis. Young supporters who wish to take advantage of these prices must obtain a free membership by taking in a passport sized photograph and proof of age to the ticket office.


Students in full time education qualify for the reduced price 16-18 season tickets. These tickets are only available in the Jimmy McIlroy Stand Lower Tier and are only issued of proof of full time education.

Child Free Offer

These tickets are only available in the Family Stand and are not available with any other offer e.g. the under 8`s free ticket offer as detailed above. They are not transferable or upgradable on a match by match basis. Both children must be under 16 on August 1, 2011. In the event the children fall into different price categories the cheaper price will be discounted. Only one free child ticket per family group is available under this offer. We have defined a family group as being at least one adult and one under 16 buying tickets for adjoining seats and paying in one transaction from one bank account. All children in the group must be registered as Junior Clarets and proof of age must be provided on request. The Club reserves the right to withdraw this offer after the early bird renewal period.

Will be doing mine next week, I am trying to convince my lad that he and his mate need to sit in the lower tier of Jimmy Mc so I can get his ticket for £85, as he is now 16 so its a bit of a price jump otherwise.

My last season ticket was in season 1982-83 and that was on the old Bee Hole End. Living away from Burnley means I only get to a handful of home games each year so not worth getting another one at present. However, good to see exisiting ST holders getting the opportunity to reap the benefit of an early renewal though I feel sorry for those people who were senior citizens this season but won't be next ! Truly they have travelled back in time.
