All the information you need to know ahead of the East Lancashire derby.
No pitch inspection is currently planned ahead of tomorrow’s game.
Supporters are respectfully asked to order and collect tickets well in advance of kick off - as large tickets purchases ahead of kick off are expected – and to collect from the temporary ticket collection point outlined below.
Please note: There are no tickets for sale on the day of the game.
Ahead of the game, all roads leading to Turf Moor will be open as usual. These include Harry Potts way and Belvedere Road. However, Harry Potts Way will close to vehicular traffic at 10.30am (other than matchday car park access).
Following the game, home supporters in the Bob Lord Stand exiting Turf Moor will be directed left down Harry Potts Way, where they must find alternative routes if heading back towards the town centre.
Home supporters exiting via either the James Hargreaves, Jimmy McIlroy Stands and David Fishwick (home) stand can either exit via Ormerod Yard (turning right only onto Belvedere Road), or via the same route as fans exiting the Bob Lord Stand.
Supporters with car park passes for the Harry Potts Way car park will not be able to return to their vehicles until after the visiting supporters coaching operation has been completed. (The Fanzone in the North East car park will be open after the game for home supporters).
Due to the redevelopment works taking place on the site of the former Ticket Office and Clarets Store, a temporary Ticket office is now located to the right of the Bob Lord Stand main reception on Harry Potts Way.
Home ticket collections can only be claimed from here until 11am.
After 11am, fans wishing to collect pre-paid tickets can do so from the Elite Training Centre’s main reception, situated in the North East car park, behind the James Hargreaves Stand.
Please note only current Season Ticket holders will be permitted in the David Fishwick Stand for tomorrow’s game.
The Fanzone will be open 11am to home fans only, and opens again after the game.
The stadium’s Clarets Store has moved to a new location, situated in the Elite Training Centre, in the North East car park, behind the James Hargreaves Stand.
The store will be open from 9am on Saturday until kick-off and will re-open until 5pm after the full-time whistle.
Please take extra care around the Elite Training Centre, as highlighted ramps and curbs are in-situ.
The Lottery Department has relocated. The department can now be found at the Elite Training Centre’s main reception.
Stadium access for wheelchair users situated on the corner of the Bob Lord and Jimmy McIlroy stands has been altered and these supporters are now asked to enter via gate E1, (the gate under the Big Screen) between the Jimmy McIlroy and James Hargreaves Stands. Free ponchos will be handed out at this entrance in inclement weather
Both clubs have worked closely with the Police and the authorities in the planning of this event. While we want supporters to enjoy this exciting fixture, it must be noted that anybody causing trouble will not be tolerated and firm action will be taken if they choose to behave in a disruptive, anti-social or violent manner.
Thank you for your support and enjoy the game.
