On Saturday 2nd February, Blackpool FC are away at Accrington Stanley.  Andy Holt, Chairman and owner of AS, has been a shining light in the murky world that is football club ownership and it is fair to say that if more club Chairmen were like him, our national game would be in a much healthier place.  He is certainly the polar opposite to the regime at Blackpool FC. 

BST have been in communication with Accrington over this fixture and they have sent us the following information: 

“Away fans will be able to purchase their tickets either in person during normal office hours or via telephone on 01254 356950 and can be paid via cash in person or by card over the phone. 

We can either send out the tickets recorded delivery (£2) or they can be collected on the day of the game. We would prefer to post them out if possible to ease congestion on the day of the game. 

We would also encourage Blackpool fans to purchase their tickets in advance but any unsold tickets will be available to purchase right up to kick off. 

Prices are as follows: 

£20 adults 

£15 concessions/students 

£10 12 to 17 year olds 

£5 under 12 years old 

 

 We really want to make  Blackpool fans welcome at the stadium on the day of the game and are looking to put on live music, cheap beer and good company!  

We welcome supporters mixing prior to and after the game in our Fanzone Marquee and will ensure you have a decent day out!” 

  

BST would like to encourage as many Blackpool fans as possible to attend this fixture.  We are now famous for our home boycotts but we would like to turn this away fixture into another statement to show that Blackpool fans are still here and are waiting in our numbers to return as soon as our club is Oyston free.  It would also be an endorsement of a real community club, which Accrington Stanley epitomises under Andy Holt's leadership, and a chance to show our support for the way that club is run.   

         


We are going. I suspect we will just pay on the day. Can't see us shifting more than 1k tickets. 

Everyone should make the effort to go to this. Let's get a good turnout... awaits the NAGM abuse 😀

‍ Sounds like lots are going.

Yep, sounds like the Bury away of last year.
Hope its a good day out. NAGM for me now after the Lionel long signing from Cods.

‍I can't believe that's your final straw after your all the other shite!

Its the strae that broke the camels back 😁
Those camels can only take so many straes.
Why are we speaking Scottish?

Aye!

My camel like spine has finally imploded after the signing of a whiz kid.

Anyone got tickets yet or paying on the gate? Ringing up to get three tickets. A few coming out of the woodwork for this one. 

Me and my lad are going to go.

I need my footy fix and my lad needs to be reminded of who he supports.

I wonder if we can break the 1k mark for a league match. I can only think of Bury two years ago where we have taken more than 1k in recent years. 
Trying to get three tickets but their card machines are down.
All booked. Standing behind the goal. If it's pissing down, I will regret not getting the covered seating.
I'll be there. Accrington deserve a big following and a bit of extra cash after there gesture.
Standing or sitting?
Standing

I had a choice. My thinking was that if you're going to go to Accrington, you might as well do it proper and stand.

Think we are going to Whetherspoons in the Centre. Train gets in at 12.10.
I am going to get train from Burnley then hit the pubs on route to the ground. The ground isn't as far away as being made out.
Google maps say 23 minutes so bit of a trek. That's why getting tickets posted so don't have to get to the ground early.

Do you reckon this will be popular with Blackpool fans or do you think most will stay in town?

You bringing your Leicester flag? 😊
No, I only followed them because I liked David Speedie and Julian Joachim.

Hopefully a similar scene in the Accrington pubs. 

I wouldn’t go if it was free. Fuck Oyston FC.
I doubt you'll be missed.
