Just the Ticket and More-Rovers and Super Sunday

Just the Ticket and More-Rovers and Super Sunday

It`s Super Sunday this weekend with Burnley facing their local foes Blackburn Rovers in a Championship clash at Turf Moor. Fans are reminded this match will NOT be televised and will kick off early at 12:30pm.

Some tickets for the Lancashire derby are still available on general sale no but you need to act fast if you want one and all the best seats have gone

This general sale period is only open to Burnley FC supporters with a Clarets number. Tickets for this game continue to sell fast and the club urge all fans who would like to attend to purchase their ticket as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

Tickets can be bought via the usual methods; by phone at 0871 221 1914 (option 1), in person at the ticket office, or online. All tickets ordered online or by phone will need to be picked up from the ticket office. You are only allowed one ticket per Clarets number and tickets are non refundable and cannot be relocated once purchased.
Classed as a GOLD category game are adult tickets available from as little as £26 for members or £30 for non-members.



In view of the nature of this game there are also of course special match day arrangements that have been put in place for safety reasons and we have received the following from the Burnley FC media department:

Burnley v Blackburn: Supporter Information

A number of special arrangements will be in place for supporters for Burnley`s Lancashire derby against Blackburn Rovers at Turf Moor on Sunday, 2 December

Both clubs have worked closely with police to ensure that the game (kick-off 12.30pm) goes ahead with the minimum of incident.

Blackburn supporters, who have been allocated an initial 3,080 tickets, will be transported to Turf Moor on coaches and taken to a point adjacent to the turnstiles for the away end and from there guided immediately into the stadium.

After the match when they leave, an area of Harry Potts Way, which will be cordoned off, and Belvedere Road will be out of bounds for home supporters on foot.

Those fans affected will have to take an alternative route from the home area turnstiles, via the arrowed routes shown in the diagram below:



Before the game, the first coaches from Blackburn will arrive at 10.45am so home supporters and guests using the car park in Harry Potts Way are encouraged to arrive early.

That car park, and the main Turf Moor car park, will remain closed for an hour after the match finishes.

The bar in the Foundation Lounge in the Jimmy McIlroy Stand will remain open to all home supporters after the match.

Supporters are also encouraged to use town centre car parks to avoid congestion around Turf Moor with local authority car parks are free for use on a Sunday.

Meanwhile, all supporters are asked to arrive early with Turf Moor expecting its biggest crowd of the season. Turnstiles will open at 11am.

Burnley Football Club hopes these arrangements will not adversely affect your enjoyment of the day and we apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Why don't they just keep the Rovers mob in the Cricket Field after the game for quarter of an hour and let the home fans make their way home before letting them out? They could then cordon off the streets if they want in case of any Burnley nutheads hanging around to cause trouble?

On the face of it TMP that seems a good idea, though I suppose the answer is never as simple as it would appear and, if the police and club did not impose these arrangements, and everything kicked off we'd all be asking why!! I agree though that it is very sad that we can't go to a game of football with, in many cases, members of our own families in case a few plastic meatheads cause a bit of trouble.
