Strong support for Blue and White Day

Things are hotting up already for #BlueAndWhiteDay, which takes place next week!

Rovers supporters around the world are in party mode after the club secured promotion to the Championship on Tuesday evening.

Rovers are now chasing the League One title with two games remaining, starting in London this weekend at Charlton Athletic before the final match of the 2017/18 campaign at home to Oxford United on Saturday 5th May.

Twenty four hours prior to the match against the U’s, #BlueAndWhiteDay will take over Blackburn and the surrounding areas as local schools, businesses and community organisations will get involved and wear a Rovers shirt (past or present) or anything else blue and white on the day.

Already, we have already had a number of sign ups, with the first school to sign on the dotted line being St James' Lower Darwen, who participate in the Trust’s Move and Learn project.

Lynsey, who is a teacher at the primary school, located just a mile away from Ewood Park, was in the away stand to witness Rovers win promotion at Doncaster on Tuesday night, and she believes ‘BlueAndWhiteDay is a fantastic idea.

She said: “I have supported Blackburn Rovers for 22 years and I am a season ticket holder so it was great to see the team win promotion on Tuesday night.

“The children are all looking forward to Blue And White Day. We got told about the idea last week and it was definitely something the school wanted to get involved in.

“We are only a mile from the stadium and it is important to spread the word and get more children supporting their local football team.

“We want to see more people cheering on Blackburn Rovers and it shows the club is very community focused considering the awards they have won this season.”

Each day, more schools, business and organisations are signing up to be a part of #BlueAndWhiteDay on Friday 4th May.
