Rovers Allocated 30,000 Tickets

Blackburn Rovers have been allocated 30,000 tickets for the FA Cup Semi Final with Chelsea.

The tie, taking place at Old Trafford, the home of Manchester United on Sunday 15th April kicks off at 4pm. The Rovers faithful will be occupying the East Stand.

30,000 sounds a lot, and judging by most attendances at Ewood Park this season it could be hard for the full allocation to be snapped up but as FA Cup Semi Finals don't come round everyday why shouldn't we sell out, especially as it isn't far for locals to travel. You do have to have some sympathy with the travelling Chelsea fans though don't you.

Tickets are priced at 25-55 and should be with Rovers next week.

Meanwhile anyone who fancies themselves as a fresher John Motson or an even more energetic Jonathan Pearce could commentate on the match!

Sky Sports are looking for a Rovers fan to commentate alongside a Chelsea follower for their FanZone broadcast. For more details visit the Official Blackburn Rovers or Sky Sports websites.


Don't forget "Walkerbout" Sunday Evening in the forum between 6pm & 8pm. I DO HOPE THAT MANY ROVERS FANS AND ANY OTHER VITAL FOOTBALL FANS FOR THAT MATTER WILL TURN UP. Topics up for debate are down to you! For more information click here

Also don't forget the forum itself, you can talk about whatever you want there and YOU decide what it is! Forum Link

Many will claim we'll find it hard to sell out our 30,000 allocation, maybe we will, especially as they won't come cheap. But it would be nice to prove doubters wrong wouldn't it. Although people will probably be saving their money for Wembley :)

As for the FanZone situation wouldn't it be great to see this commentator being a Vital Blackburn member! Any takers?!?!

LOL - they are usually fake fans - didn't Sky used to do the FanZone? Anyway 30,000 we only sold 20,000 for cardiff a couple of years ago, however, it was the travel that put most people off... perhaps 30,000 won;t be a problem - will also get a few plastic mancs turning up just to oppose Chelsea

I know there is a North/South divide and wages are generally higher here but you will get little or no sympathy from us if you do not sell your allocation at whatever price. Between 1 January and 30 April we will have sold out/taken our full allocation for the following games which are all over and above the price of our season tickets. Villa away Macclesfield home FA Cup Wycombe away C Cup Liverpool away Wycombe home C Cup Forest home FA Cup Charlton away Norwich Home FA Cup Porto away Champions league Arsenal - Cardiff C Cup final Portsmouth away Porto home Champions league Spurs home FA Cup Man City away Spurs away FA Cup Watford away Valencia home Champions league Valencia away Champions league Blackburn Old Trafford FA Cup West Ham away Newcastle away Plus 2 more potential champions league matches if we get through. And people say we have no fan base!!!

I hope you do sell your allocation - it needs to be a full house and a real spectacle! The FA Cup deserves it!
