Blackburn Count Cost of Relegation

Tue 10th Jul 2012 | Football Stadiums & Facilities

The reality of a life in the Championship has led to Blackburn Rovers reducing the cost of its hospitality facilities by up to 40% on last term.

Rovers, who were relegated from the Premier League, have introduced the new price points for all of the main lounges at Ewood Park for the 2012-13 campaign.

Operations Director Paul Agnew said: "We fully understand the financial climate out there and we have based the pricing with that situation very much at the forefront of our minds. Money is tight and we know that people are looking closely at their spending.

"We are committed to continuing with the highest levels of service - from the facilities and food to the warmth of the welcome - and the only real difference concerns the cost. We are determined to give Rovers fans and local companies the best hospitality around at the best price possible!

"The upcoming season - now under six weeks away - will be a new experience in so much that we will be competing in a new league, the npower Championship, which is recognised as the most competitive league in football.

"Not only will we renew rivalry with Burnley, we will also engage in other local derbies with Bolton Wanderers and Blackpool and, added to that, Roses fixtures with the likes of Leeds United and Sheffield Wednesday. Matches not to be missed!

"We believe that the prospect of winning football and the great food provided and inspired by Michelin-starred chef Nigel Haworth's Northcote at the Rovers offers a great package and we hope that many businesses, both local and farther afield, will take advantage."

The cost for Executive Boxes (all home league matches for 10 people) have also been drastically reduced and start at £12,000.

To add flexibility and ensure hospitality packages are as affordable as possible, next season's cup games will be omitted. Instead, the club will offer an appropriate service at cup games to ensure all seasonal clients will receive the best deal possible.
