Important information for supporters travelling to the cup tie against Millwall next month.

Blackburn Rovers fans planning to attend the forthcoming FA Cup sixth round tie against Millwall this Sunday March 10th should note that the rail network between London Bridge and South Bermondsey – the closest station to The Den – will be suspended on the day of the game. 

Therefore, supporters travelling by train would need to get the underground from Central London to Surrey Quays and then walk to the stadium.

In the light of the train disruption, the Metropolitan Police has advised Rovers fans to travel by coach or private vehicle and the club has decided to increase capacity on its official Away Travel service.

Rovers’ operations director Paul Agnew said: “The FA Cup quarter-final is clearly a massive game and interest is very high among our supporters. In the light of information from both Millwall FC and the Metropolitan Police about the unfortunate disruption to train services on the day of the game, we would suggest that fans take advantage of our official coach travel or look to get there via private vehicle.”

Match tickets, which are located in the North Stand Upper Tier, are on general sale, priced at £20 for adults, £11 for seniors (aged 60+) and £10 for juniors (under-16). They will be on sale at Ewood Park until Friday lunchtime. A limited number of tickets will be on sale on the day of the game at the Den from the North Stand ticket office.

Away Travel prices are £29 for adults and £27.50 for concessions. Coaches depart from the Boars Head, Accrington, at 6.30am and from the Darwen End at Ewood Park at 7am on the day of the game.

To book, or for further information, call the Ticket Office on 0871 222 1444.
