Whenever a club reviews its ticket prices at the start of every season a normal club would go and try and drip as much as possible out of fans.

But Blackburn Rovers have not gone down that route.

The low price ticket policy has worked a treat in all departments. Due to the ‘taking back Ewood’ initiative that was set up at the start of the season, Rovers have seen average attendances boosted and the atmopshere in the ground improve no end to boot! (Fancy that?)

But what is most impressive is that for the first time in a long while, Blackburn have fans on all four sides of ground and even the players have commented how much help it is.

The Darwen End has been reclaimed by the Blue and White, with away fans largely tucked away at the top – where they belong!

The fans in the Darwen End have spent all season trying to raise the roof with a small group called ‘The Darwen End Singing Section’.

I have no idea how the idea came about but by getting the Blackburn End, Riverside Stand and the Darwen End together in voice, the matchday atmosphere has soared and the players benefit.

It is no coincidence that our home form has been the key to success this term and the Darwen End Singing Section has been a big part of that.

So much so that quite a lot of fans I speak to are quite keen to get a piece of the pie and are actively moving to the Darwen End next time out.

Good atmopshere. Check. Loud singers. Check. Improved results. Check.

What was for a long time a running joke is now one of the cult successes at Blackburn Rovers.

Well done the Darwen End Singing Section.

  • personally i hate it… its taken all the song starters from other areas of the ground.. which now makes it ****..

  • I disagree, it has spread the joy as far as I am concerned. All the areas have benefitted, apart from the JW stand which is still terrible.

  • Something tells me that ‘rover23’ is a dingle. How could anyone dislike the atmosphere created by these incredible fans. Great article btw

  • As a blackburn die hard I have been pleased to hear the darwen end singing and puttimg the popcorn brigade to shame

  • ROVER23 is anything but a dingle, trust me on that one brfc…..i kind of understand what he is saying, when we all bunch up for the dragons army (St George Dragons NRL) its like all the songs are coming from the one area, leaving the opposite end kinda drained….but in saying that, you guys sounding abo*****ely amazing and hopefully this continues next season!

  • exactly, they havent robbed all the loudest singers at all, just created their own. the riverside stand used to be one of the loudest, but theyve gone quiet, even jack walker stand give em a run for there money

  • BRFC91 icredible fans?? to tight to buy a full season ticket if you ask me. Rover23 aint no dingle born and bred in Blackburn.

  • OMG i cant believe the animosity that is coming from fellow Rovers about increased crowds/revenue for our club!! The only reason i can think for this is because they are paying full price for their ticket!!…..I pay full price for mine, but i am made up that Rovers have had the foresight to fill the ground creating a better atmosphere than we have had since 95 and increasing revenue at the ground!!! Get a grip you philistines!!! ha ha

  • DINGLE? are you taking the pi$$? “incredible fans” my ass… how about forking out another £50 and support your club in the toughest games we play at ewood? Proud to be a Rovers fan.. and I dont need a ****ty title about a singing section to voice my passion at ewood..
