What's going on at Ewood throughout Saturday? We host Rotherham United at Ewood Park and here's our matchday timetable for the main event against the Millers...

Opening Times: 

10:00 Roverstore opens

11:00 Blues opens

12:00 Foster’s FanZone opens

13:00 Strikers’ Lounge opens

13:30 Concourses open

What’s On:

11:00 Please join us at the ‘Rovers Remember’ memorial at the Darwen End for a short Remembrance Day service, led by club chaplain Ken Howles. This will be immediately followed by a tree planting ceremony in the Memorial Garden, having been donated trees by The Woodland Trust via the EFL Trust in memory of Eddie Latheron, the former Rovers and England inside forward who sadly lost his life during the Battle of Passchendaele in 1917, while serving with the Royal Field Artillery.

12:30 Cardiff City v Brighton will be live on the Foster’s FanZone screen as our stage entertainment also begins.

13:15 Rovers Return tickets go on sale.

13:25 Weather permitting, the inflatable goal in the corner of the Family Stand and Blackburn End will be up for around an hour.

13:30 Local Cadets will be conducting a bucket collection in aid of the Poppy Appeal around the ground – please give as generously as you can.

14:00 Charlotte Lily (@CharlotteLilyUK) on the FanZone stage – you’ll recognise her from the X Factor, where she received four yeses and reached the Six Chair Challenge. Simon Cowell affectionately described her as ‘wacky’, with Robbie Williams telling her: "You're original, and that's what we need”. Charlotte writes and performs songs that have a unique twist with country pop tones and is eager to release new music as a follow-up to her self-recorded debut EP, Days We Lived Best.

14:50 Blackburn primary schools Sacred Heart, St Michael with St John, St Silas and Wensley Fold will be among those forming today’s flag parade along the touchlines.

14:54 A poignant Remembrance Day commemoration will start with local Cadets forming a guard of honour, through which supporter representatives Michael Crump (Blackburn Rovers) and Peter Langstaff (Rotherham United) will carry wreathes, with representatives of The War Society also carrying a wreath and the matchball. Following the emergence of the teams – accompanied by player escorts from Clifton Rangers U8 Hornets – a memorial ceremony including an address from Ken Howles, a minute’s silence and the playing of The Last Post will take place ahead of kick-off.

15:50 Rovers Return lottery draw. The results will be broadcast via the PA system.

15:52 The four guest primary schools will take part in our half-time penalty shoot-out competition.
