As the title says. And anyone that knows football KNOWS this is a brilliant deal.
Tickets for Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United games at Ewood are regularly at £30+ separately, and depending on where you sit. And away, I know a ticket to see Blackburn at Old Trafford is about £50.
So, come the second half of the season, from 28th December vs. Sunderland, Blackburn Rovers are practically giving away tickets to other fantastic games for the price of the big three.
Full List of teams to be played at Ewood Park included in this package:
Wigan Athletic (local derby)
Bolton Wanderers (local derby)
£99 price is for unreserved seating in the WEC Darwen End, apart from the United game, which Im not 100% sure about. Its possible that the United game isnt included in the £99 deal.
Prices around the stadium are:
'Walkersteel' Blackburn End (Family Stand): £109
Jack Walker End (Wings): £155
Jack Walker End (Central, under the TV Cameras): £185
If any other Premier League team does a deal as cheap as this, I will eat the socks I am wearing right now.
Ticket is advertised as being available at http://www.OneRovers.co.uk,
the Ewood Park Ticket Office, or over the phone.http://img341.imageshack.us/img341/876/rovers.jpg
(EDIT: Slight update to this, given some details are sketchy. The Blackburn Rovers Messageboard has a post up confirming that the United game IS NOT included in this Half Season Ticket, and you will have priority to a ticket when they go on sale. But you will have to pay separate for the United ticket. CHELSEA AND ARSENAL ARE STILL INCLUSIVE IN THE PRICE OF THE HALF SEASON TICKET.)http://220.127.116.11/search?q=cache:jH_bPGkCWIEJ:boards.rovers.co.uk/viewtopic.php%3Ff%3D16%26p%3D608357%26sid%3D030d63434fd12eac19f044b95aa24f6b+blackburn+rovers+half+season+ticket&cd=3&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=uk
EDIT -3/12/09: Okay. More info.
The Blackburn End Upper INCLUDES the United game, however has the small term of 'one adult AND one junior ticket to be purchased together.' Junior prices are £39 for the first, £35 for the second.
There is no Direct Debit option for the £99 Darwen End or the £109 Blackburn End Upper tickets.
The £155 and £185 deals in the Jack Walker Stand (Wings and Central respectively) DO carry a Direct Debit option, the first of which is a £42.50 deposit, then three payments of £42.50 thereafter, totaling £170 for DD. The second is £50 deposit, with three £50 payments thereafter, totaling £200.
So, it looks like Ill be going for the Darwen End deal after all, with the option of a seat at the Man Utd game for an extra fee.
