    As if the financial position isn't bad enough we now have super cheap season tickets, premier league pledges and free golden tickets. The EOY finance results should make interesting reading.
    If you had asked a group of Burnley supporters in November 2010 to take control of Blackburn Rovers and do as they saw fit in order to run the club into the ground, they couldn't possibly have done a more effective job than the Venky's have in the time available.

    It's as if Venky's want to destroy you from the inside. Perhaps the snowball incident could have far reaching consequences in the longer term...

    Giving away season tickets is a recipe for disaster for a club reliant on this money such as Blackburn Rovers. With a massive wage bill and the continuation of ridiculous contracts for underperforming players, the club needs to be increasing it's gate receipts not reducing them.

    If you should fall into League One on the back of cost cutting to meet the FFP requirements then I see major trouble ahead when prices have to be returned to a sustainable level. The result longer term is a complete restructuring on a smaller scale and Blackburn Rovers returning to the days of lower league football and a 5k - 6k supporter base.

    Sad times ahead for sure."

Rovers offer fans a 'golden' ticket

This Is Lancashire: Rovers offer fans a 'golden' ticket Rovers offer fans a 'golden' ticket

BLACKBURN Rovers are to give away 20 ‘golden season tickets’ to celebrate the anniversary of their Premier League title triumph – and they have also announced only modest price rises for the new campaign.

The 2014/15 season will be the 20th anniversary of Rovers’ title-winning campaign in 1994/95 and Rovers are marking the milestone by handing out 20 free season tickets. More details will be unveiled by the club today.

Season tickets go on sale today and Rovers are again offering one of the cheapest season ticket deals in the country, as well as retaining the ‘Premier League pledge’ – meaning that fans will get 75 per cent off season tickets for 2015/16 if the club go up.

The cheapest adult season ticket at Ewood Park next term will cost £249, with under 17s prices frozen at £60.

Rovers boss Gary Bowyer said: “We have tried to build a young, energetic team, playing for each other, committed to the cause – one that fans can identify with.

“I hope they will join us for the forthcoming season and support us in getting this club back where it belongs – the Premier League.”

Season tickets in the Riverside Stand, Blackburn End and Darwen End cost £225 for adults a year ago.

For 2014/15 Riverside Stand season tickets are priced at £249, with Blackburn End and Darwen End tickets priced at £279.

Tickets in the Jack Walker Stand wings have increased from £340 to £379, while seats in the centre of the Jack Walker Stand are up to £429 from £399.

Rovers say the prices are the second cheapest in the Championship behind Blackpool.

Tickets for 17 to 21-year-olds and senior citizens will cost £159 in the Riverside Stand, £179 in the Blackburn End and Darwen End, £199 in the Jack Walker wings and £309 in the Jack Walker centre.

Under 17s tickets cost £60 in all areas of the ground apart from the centre of the Jack Walker Stand, where they are priced at £99.

Under eights can get a free season ticket in the Blackburn End Family Stand when an adult or senior citizen season ticket is also purchased.
