ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW | BURTON (H)

18 February 2022

20,000 plus expected for Brewers visit

Town welcome Burton Albion to Portman Road tomorrow afternoon looking to make it four consecutive home wins in a row. 

The Blues sit in ninth place in League One looking to maintain pressure on the top six, while the Brewers occupy twelfth position and are five points behind Town.

Jimmy Floyd-Hasselbaink's side were in midweek action and defeated Bolton 3-1 at the Pirelli Stadium. The visitors dipped into the free agent market yesterday, signing former Everton striker Oumar Niasse on a free transfer. 

Team news from Kieran McKenna's side can be read here.

The below guide takes you through all you need to know ahead of tomorrow's match:

Tickets

Just over 20,000 tickets have already been sold. Ticket sales will run up until kick-off. They can be purchased on the day online via tickets.itfc.co.uk or from the matchday ticket office on Constantine Road from 10am.

No on-the-day sales will take place in Planet Blue, with supporters are encouraged to buy their tickets online and in advance of the match.

You will have a recommended entry time on your match ticket, please try and stick to this time as this will help with the flow of supporters. These are only a guide, though, and you will not be denied entry if you miss your slot.

Season ticket holders will not have an allocated entry time, but are still strongly advised to arrive in plenty to time.

The ticket office phone lines (03330 050530) are open from 10am until midday on Saturday. The ticket office is also contactable on email via mainticketoffice@itfc.co.uk.

The away ticket office on Portman Road will be open from 1pm for any ticketing enquiries, while the disabled entrance on Constantine Road will open from midday.
