Communication from Villa re: tickets:

CARLING CUP SEMI FINAL 1ST LEG: MATCH POSTPONED


Villa can confirm this evening’s first leg Carling Cup semi-final clash with Blackburn has been called off.

The decision was taken by Rovers in conjunction with the Police Match Commander on the grounds of public safety and following consultation with the Football League.

Since first thing this morning Rovers officials have been in constant contact with both the Met Office and Police and have been monitoring both the weather and road network conditions in the surrounding area.

Some roads around Ewood Park are currently inaccessible and even the motorways have only been passable with extreme care, with many travellers having already experienced lengthy delays and disruption.

While a date is yet to be officially confirmed, the game looks set to be rescheduled for Thursday January 14.

Tickets already purchased for the first leg clash will be valid for the rescheduled fixture.

People requiring a refund must return their tickets to Villa’s Ticket Office by Monday January 11.

Any tickets then up for resale will be made available on Monday – first to those supporters in possession of a Christmas Eve waiting list voucher, which must be redeemed at the Ticket Office on the day, then to season ticket holders from Wednesday.

If you have any queries relating to this fixture, please call the ticket office on 0800 612 0970.
