EFL Statement: Burnley v Blackburn Rovers

4 October 2022

Following further discussions between the League, Burnley and Blackburn Rovers, Sky Sports, and the Lancashire Police, it has now been agreed that the Sky Bet Championship fixture between Burnley and Blackburn Rovers will kick-off at 12:30pm on 13 November.

There had been some concerns raised that the original re-arranged 12 noon kick-off time was too near to the start of Remembrance Day Services and in some circumstances, would prevent some supporters from being able to attend. 

The move is intended to provide an opportunity to go to both events if so desired and, as with previous matches scheduled on Remembrance Sunday over the years, time will be taken at the match to give those in attendance the chance to pay their respects to servicemen and women affected by wars past and present.

A pre-match ceremony will be held at Turf Moor, featuring a Bugler alongside the laying of a wreath.
