Rovers have announced they will be subsiding the price of tickets for the FA Cup fifth round tie at Leicester City by 50 per cent.

The game at the King Power Stadium will be played on Tuesday, February 28 (7.30pm), with Rovers given an initial allocation of 2,254.

Adult tickets will start from £10 following the club’s decision to subsidise the cost.

Supporters faced a long trip for a 12.30pm start at Norwich on Sunday, January 8 and then a quick turnaround for the Birmingham replay that was played on Tuesday, January 31, only three days after the Ewood fixture.

Rovers said: “As a thank you to the fans for the fantastic support received in the previous rounds against Norwich City and Birmingham City, the club are discounting all fifth round tickets by 50 per cent.”

Tickets will go on sale from tomorrow (Friday) for season ticket holders with 1875 Club membership and remain the case until February 13.

Priority for season ticket holders will run until February, while tickets will be on sale on February 16 and February 17 for supporters who signed up to a half season ticket or 18-game package.

Members of the 1875 Club will then have priority on February 18 and 19.

Any supporter qualifying for the above will be able to purchase tickets priced at £10 for adults, £6 for seniors and Under-22s, £3.50 for Under-18s and £1.50 for Under-12s.

Any remaining tickets will go on general sale on Monday February 20.

Those are priced at £12.50, £8.50, £4.50 and £3.50 respectively.
