View Full Version : Blackburn Tickets
18-07-2000, 02:36 PM
Just called the Ticket Office at Selhurst.....asking about what tickets they will have for the Blackburn game. The very friendly young lady said they won't hear about how many they will have, and when they will go on sale until next week.
So what I am asking, is this, I go on holiday from July 31st - August 8th (yes I miss the open day on the 6th, which is also my birthday, so a new away shirt would have been a great present! *sigh*) and I want to go to the Blackburn game (and take a friend) but won't be in th position to buy a ticket until I change up any left over pesetas when I get back!!! So what do people think? Will I still be able to get 2 tickets on the 8th?? Or is that too late??? Help!!!!!

If you're going up by train on the day email me (it's in the profile icon at the top of the post) and I'll pick up a couple of extra tickets for you.

I was going to drive me and my mate up there!!! But I won't be in the position to get the tickets until.....erm....I land at Gatwick at about 5am on the 8th, I will go straight to the ground as soon as the office opens! Thank you for the offer of help though......but it all hinges on whether I piss all my pesatas up the wall on the last day on holiday!!

Blackburn usually have a large area open to 'away' fans - normally about a 1/3 of the seats behind one of the goals. I'm not sure if that is just the lower tier, or both, but I would think 2 tickets would still be available on the 8th. Better get off the plane and wiz down to Selhurst straight away though.

For info see http://dspace.dial.pipex.com/town/park/yfh45/blackb.htm
Unusually for a northern place the town pubs aren't up to much. If you like that sort of mega-pub there's a Wetherspoons.

Well hopefully see you all there then!

seem to remember there were 1 or 2 pubs near the ground - although I only got there 15 mins before kick off last year.
Ticket and coach info will be available at the open day. Ticket info may be available next week.

There was a pay car park in the ground last year Cannon - or failing that the pub over the road was charging a couple of quid to park there, which is what we did quite safely too.

Unfortunately you're right Northern - there wasn't much in the way of entertainment last year when we went, just a dingy pub opposite the ground.
Probably a case of get in and then out again without hanging around ! - although their supporters are ok and aren't any bother.
