Rovers supporters are invited to celebrate with the promotion-winning team at a special Civic Reception at One Cathedral Square today.

Blackburn with Darwen Council has extended the invitation to fans from the borough and beyond to help congratulate the club following its promotion back to the Championship at the first time of asking.

The event will start at 4pm when the Mayor of Blackburn with Darwen, Councillor Colin Rigby, will welcome the first team squad, along with manager Tony Mowbray and his staff, to One Cathedral Square to celebrate in style.

BBC Radio Lancashire’s Andy Bayes will compere the event, with the station broadcasting live from the site. 

This free event is non-ticketed and being run on a first-come first-served basis, so early attendance is advisable.

Councillor Rigby said: “Rovers have been promoted back to the Championship at the first time of asking in style, with long unbeaten runs, lots of goals and playing some fantastic football. It’s only fitting that we celebrate such a successful season in the town centre with the club and its fans. 

“The Council is delighted to host this event and we are inviting Rovers fans from far and wide to turn out on Bank Holiday Monday and help make it an occasion to remember.

“Having a successful team is good for Blackburn with Darwen – with more visitors being attracted to the area and an increased sense of prestige and happiness for those from the borough.”

Steve Waggott, Chief Executive of Blackburn Rovers, said: “The club are both honoured and delighted that the Council have invited us to a Civic Reception to celebrate our promotion back to the Championship at the first attempt. 

“Gaining promotion is always a special achievement and something that needs to be shared with all connected with the club. We are all looking forward to it being a great occasion.”
