Blackburn Rovers said the first Ewood Express of the year will head to the stadium for this weekend's game against Queens Park Rangers.

The award winning initiative has already been a huge success twice this season by providing an affordable, accessible service for children to watch a live first team men’s home fixture at Ewood Park.

The club said it introduced the special travel service in February 2020 as a way to bring communities together, and next month marks the four year anniversary of its launch.

The price is just £8 per child, including transport to and from Ewood Park.

This weekend the match ticket for the Championship game against QPR is also included.

Blackburn Rovers chief executive, Steve Waggott, said: “We are very proud of the number of young people who engage with Ewood Express.
“For some, it will be the first time they are watching a live football match, and that is why this initiative is so special.

"We all know that our first live match experience can make us supporters for life hence why it is such an important part of our overall Next Generation initiative.

“Ewood Express provides new opportunities and a safe, accessible service for young people across the borough to join us at Ewood Park and has been a great success since it started.”
