Blackburn Rovers supporters groups and websites have started to plan an organised boycott for the upcoming Wolves home match on the 6th October 2012.
With Rovers under pressure with many already staying away due to the fact that Steve Kean is still manager it seems the push is on to crank up the pressure on Venky's and with attendances down already the fans may have finally found a way to show the owners how important a fan base is to a football club.
Shebby Singh, Rovers Global Advisor, has already admitted this week that clubs like Rovers are reliant on match day income and it might not be feasible for them to sustain the club on the current attendance figures.
At the moment it is calculated that Rovers are losing approx £125,000 per home match in terms of ticket sales, average season ticket shortfall, food and drink income and hospitality sales.
With that in mind supporters groups have decided to make their feelings clear and boycott the home match with Wolves a week on Saturday in reaction to the latest farcical scenes that have resulted in retaining hated manager Steve Kean and the constant refusal to acknowledge the fans in even the most basic form.
I'd like to state on behalf of Vital and myself that the site does not endorse this as a good or bad idea we am merely passing on the information to let Rovers fans themselves make up their own mind. It is not going to be an idea for everyone but strong support for the plans appears to have emerged.
To aid the boycott Rovers fans are chipping in to buy an advert in the Lancashire Telegraph marketing the plans and are aiming to raise £2,000 to cover a 6 day ad campaign which has been reserved.
Donations are coming along quite well (about £350ish last I heard), if you would like to contribute please do....
