Turf Moor plan for Saturday's game
Turf Moor plan for Saturday's game

A number of special arrangements will be in place for supporters for Burnley’s Lancashire derby against Blackburn Rovers at Turf Moor on Saturday, September 14 (12.15pm KO).

Both clubs have worked closely with police to ensure that the game goes ahead with the minimum of incident.

Blackburn supporters 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, upon exiting Turf Moor, an area of Harry Potts Way will be cordoned off, and Belvedere Road will be out of bounds for a short time to 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 document attached.

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.

Guests and home supporters will be unable to return to the Harry Potts Car Park until after the coaches have left and it is anticipated that both car parks will remain closed for approximately one hour after the match finishes.

The bar in the Foundation Lounge in the Jimmy McIlroy Stand, open from 10am, will also 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.

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.
