Following up from our incredibly successful FA Cup Quarter final match sponsorship earlier this year, this Saturday (October 24th) The Envelope Works Group will be the official match sponsors for Blackburn Rovers verses Burnley when the two teams meet once again at Ewood Park for what is well-known for being one of the fiercest rivalries in football.Burnley-v-Blackburn

Many of you will be unaware, but Blackburn and Burnley were two of the original founding teams of the football league, when the league was formed in 1888, and with a distance of just 12 miles between them, this has added to the rivallry over the years.

And with production sites in both Blackburn (Reel Envelopes) and Earby (Envelope Works and ACE Envelopes), it made perfect sense for The Envelope Works Group to sponsor this particular match!

Due to the extensive local interest that’s generated through this match, Mark Farrimond (Group CEO) donated 2 of the VIP tickets to the local Sportman’s Dinners that are run by Neil Pilkington and held at Ewood Park to raise funds for Crown Paints Junior Football Club.

Neil Hunter, of Hunter Trading in Darwen, was the winner of the tickets and will be joining Mark and the other guests at the match.

The package includes in the following:

  • Champagne and Canapes on arrival
  • Tour of the ground which includes:- boardroom, players tunnel.
  • Signed photograph Pitch side with a Rovers Player
  • Three course meal
  • Half time refreshments
  • Directors Box Seating
  • Corporate Gift of Blackburn Rovers
  • Signed Football each

If you’re not at Ewood Park in person on Saturday, make sure you tune into Sky Sports 1 where the match is being shown live!
