Hi Does anyone know what Burnley Football Stadium and grounds is like the away fans. thanks
What are you expecting? The away fans have most of a very basic stand behind one goal and catering facilities are very simple. However, there is no reason why a Swansea fan can't enjoy an excellent day out in Burnley - the ground is in walking distance of the town centre.
Avoid the pie and peas....awful.
As away fans visiting Burnley (Turf Moor), did you sit anywhere or the away section? Any issues?
As away fans they sit in the away section otherwise they will be removed from the ground.
So sorry. It sounds like this has happened to you. When and where?
It's just I read a report that had more away fans attending Turf Moor than the away fan section capacity (by a few thousand) so I guessed they were welcomed elsewhere in the stadium.
<<So sorry. It sounds like this has happened to you. When and where?>>
I'm sure it had not happened to the previous poster... simply, it is the law in England that fans are strictly segregated and in support of that is the ticket distribution system which makes touting ("scalping") illegal. Away fans use the designated area and nowhere else, anyone 'sneaking' in is liable to removal without refund
So if one buys the ticket from Burnley FC and identifies themselves as an away supporter, then it should be fine?
How did the extra away supporters happen?
Can you post a link to what you have read?
Away tickets are given to the Away side to distribute in strictly limited numbers, not sold by the Home side and you then "declare" if you are a home or away fan. Depending on the away sides travelling support, they decide how their fans buy the tickets - ballot, home season ticket holders only etc - or they may pass tickets back to the home side if they cannot sell them all.
There are nuances, but assume that to get a ticket you must be a club member, the home team sends tickets to the away team. Both sell to their members. The two groups do not sit together.
