Burnley to offer free tickets to 3500 fans for final home game
Burnley will provide 3500 tickets for free for their final home game of the campaign.
They face Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool at Turf Moor on May 19, with the tickets set to be distributed via a ballot system.
The ballot will be available to all fans who have renewed their season tickets for next season. Successful applicants will also be encouraged to make an NHS charity donation.

Speaking about the venture, Burnley chairman Alan Pace said: “This fixture is opportunity to reward our loyal season ticket holders who have shown incredible support to the club throughout the pandemic.
“We have therefore decided to make tickets for this fixture free of charge. If supporters are able to, the club is encouraging successful applications in the ballot to consider making a donation to the NHS charities.”
Manager Sean Dyche spoke on Thursday about how fans may be less harsh on their return to stadiums.
The Englishman said: “At certain grounds and certain situations: managers, teams and players, as the season progresses there can be a negativity if a team or players are not doing well.
“I’ll be intrigued to know if that gets over-ridden for a while, where fans are just so delighted to be watching their team, they might find that energy, love and positivity for it all and think ‘I’m just happy to be back’.
“I don’t know how long that will last because it’s a very fickle industry that we’re in. There’s a real thirst for fans to be back in stadiums so that will be interesting how they respond to it, literally.”
Burnley have two games before their final home match against Liverpool. They take on Fulham on Monday evening and could pick up three points against Scott Parker’s struggling side.
After that, they play Leeds United at Turf Moor on Saturday May 15. Victory in either of those games would pretty much secure their Premier League safety by putting them on 39 points.
The highlight of their season came against Wolves in April. Chris Wood scored a brilliant first-half hat-trick before being joined by Ashley Westwood on the scoresheet, on the way to a 4-0 victory.
