Celebrate Rovers' Birthday with Football and Fireworks!

Make it a day to remember against QPR in early November for our 143rd birthday!

Rovers fans can enjoy a feast of Football & Fireworks when we entertain Queens Park Rangers at Ewood Park next month.

To mark the club’s 143rd birthday (November 5th) and Diwali (November 7th), the Hindu festival of lights, Rovers will be lighting up Ewood when Steve McClaren’s side come to town on Saturday November 3rd. 

And we are encouraging supporters to join in with the celebrations!

Throughout the Championship clash, there will be food and drinks offers available on the concourse, and we have some special souvenirs – including 2,000 glowsticks – to give away.

At the end of the match, a fantastic fireworks display will then take place from behind the Riverside Stand.

In order for supporters to get the best possible view – and as an added birthday bonus – we are allowing season ticket holders in the Riverside to upgrade their ticket and move over to the Jack Walker Stand free of charge. 

All other supporters in the Riverside will be accommodated in the lower tier of the Darwen End at the end of the game in order to watch the display.

Tickets for the game start from just £21 for adults, £15 for concessions, £7 for Under-18s and £5 for Under-12s and are available now from the Roverstore at Ewood Park, online at or by calling the Ticket Office on 01254 372000.
