A splash of colour has been added to a classic moment from Blackburn Rovers’ history by re-colouring the famous photo of our 1884 FA Cup winning team.
The re-colouring has been provided by The Football League as part of the #WallofColour campaign.
The new photo shows what a massive difference colour can make and comes as Rovers are calling on fans to create a #WallofColour at our season opener against Cardiff City on Friday.
Supporters are encouraged to turn Ewood Park into a sea of blue-and-white to inspire manager Gary Bowyer and the team to get the 2014-15 Sky Bet Championship campaign off to the best possible start and then share their efforts on social media using #WallofColour.
The Rovers boss said: “For us to run out on Friday night and just see all the stands covered in blue and white would be fantastic and it should spur the players on even more so.”
