After tickets for our away fixture against Blackpool quickly sold out, the club are giving supporters who missed out on tickets the chance to watch the derby together at Deepdale!
Preston North End will be hosting a beam back of the game live at Deepdale on Saturday 23rd October, with the game being streamed live on two large screens which will be located pitchside.
While we share supporters' frustrations with the limited allocation of tickets for the fixture at Bloomfield Road, we hope as many fans as possible can join us for the afternoon to get behind the boys from Deepdale.
Tickets for the beam back will be priced at £5 for all in the hope as many of you can join us as possible. The club have priced the tickets as low as we can in order to cover some of the costs involved, with the event being held with the primary objective of giving as many supporters as possible the chance to watch the game live.
Supporters will be able to purchase tickets for the beam back from 9am on Monday 11th October, and they will be available online at www.mypne.com or in person from the ticket office.
There will be an initial allocation of 3,000 tickets available for the beam back, with unreserved seating in the Bill Shankly Kop. There will also be free unreserved parking available on the Sir Tom Finney, Alan Kelly Town End and Invincibles Pavilion car parks for those attending.
The fan zone will be open from 1.30pm for drinks and refreshments ahead of kick-off, with a live band also playing. The turnstiles will then open from 2pm for supporters to head in to the stand and get ready for the game, with pre-match build up on the screens and the concourses will also be open for drinks and refreshments. The fan zone will also be open post-match for any supporters who wish to head there for a drink after the game!
We understand it isn't the same as being at the game itself but we hope to make it an enjoyable afternoon for all of those at Deepdale.
Please note that the game will not be available to watch live on iFollow PNE to supporters in the UK and Ireland, so the only place to watch the game live if you don't have a match ticket is at Deepdale.
