The following information is provided to assist Burnley supporters ahead of next Wednesday’s Carabao Cup second round tie at Ewood Park.
UPDATED: 1pm: Friday, August 18.
Tickets for the Burnley vs Blackburn Carabao Cup 2nd round fixture at Ewood Park have now sold out. We thank you for your support.
As a result, the ticket office will no longer be open on Sunday for Blackburn match sales. However, the collection point on Harry Potts Way will open 10am-2pm for Blackburn ticket collections only.
Coach travel to this fixture is compulsory for all visiting fans.
Burnley Football Club will pay for the coaching of all supporters to the game, either from Turf Moor or via Supporters Clubs.
Tickets bought by one of the methods listed below will include a voucher, which includes a departure time and zone location for pick up.
There is one pick-up point, which is Turf Moor. The first convoy of coaches will leave at 6pm.
Please note that due to limited planning time and the locations in proximity to local businesses, we are regrettably unable to utilise the pick-up points previously used at Widow Hill Road and Lower Phillips Road, both in Blackburn.
Supporters Clubs’ coaches will meet at Rishton (A678, Blackburn Road, nr East Lancashire Sailing Club, BB1 4ET, facing Whitebirk roundabout).
Please ensure you arrive at your departure point 15 minutes before embarking.
Limited car parking will be available on the Harry Potts Car Park at Turf Moor.
Supporters are requested to present relevant coach and match tickets when boarding their allocated coach. Supporters are also asked to adhere to the ticketing sales policy, otherwise they may be refused access to the transport provided. Your co-operation with this is essential to ensure the operation runs to schedule.
Food and soft drinks can be taken on board the coaches, but Blackburn Rovers have implemented a ‘no-bottle policy’ within the Ewood Park stadium.
This includes glass and plastic bottles. However, flasks are permitted.
Therefore, supporters are requested to leave bottles either in the waste bins provided at Turf Moor, or at the turnstiles at Ewood Park.
No alcohol will be permitted into the North East car park, and you may be searched on entry.
The James Hargreaves (lower tier) concourse will be open until 6.30pm for toilet facilities and refreshments.
Burnley have been allocated 5,000 tickets for this game and these will be sold in-line with the sales policy of the host club.
The first 3,000 tickets will be sold in the lower tier of the Darwen End. Only once these are sold, will upper tier tickets be released for sale.
