Burnley Football Club have announced that after a successful trial three game campaign to judge demand, the David Fishwick Stand will be open for the next four home games of the season for home supporters.
The club used last season’s Leicester City and Stoke City games, as well as the recent MK Dons match, as the three trial games and would like to go on record in thanking all fans who purchased or transferred into this area for helping create a greater atmosphere within Turf Moor.
A four-game bundle, in addition to match-by-match tickets, will now made available as the club looks to offer more options to home supporters.
These tickets go on sale from 9am on Friday, September 18.
Chief Executive David Baldwin said: “Home fan accessibility in the David Fishwick Stand has always been a topic brought up in our regular consultations with supporters groups.
“We have listened to these opinions and agreed to open this area on a trial basis, to judge demand and any issues this may have caused the club in regards to ground safety and stewarding.
“We are delighted with both the attendances and behaviour of fans in this area during the trial period, and feel it would be a fantastic opportunity to now open this area up for home fans for our next four home games at Turf Moor”.
Football League rules state that all fans (home or visiting) must be charged equally if not using one of the four allowed ‘local’ promotion games.
However clubs are allowed to put together game ‘bundles’ and so we have created the special #FishwickFour ticket bundle.
The #FishwickFour ticket bundle, available from 9am on Friday, September 18, will include the next four Championship home games.
Reading (Saturday, September 26)
Bolton Wanderers (Saturday, October 17)
Huddersfield Town (Saturday, October 31)
Fulham (Tuesday, November 3).
The #FishwickFour ticket bundle costs just £60 (adults), £40 (over 65 and U22), and £20 U18, and can be purchased from the Turf Moor Ticket Office in person, or online at claretsstore.com.
