THE TITLE WILL BE LIFTED AT THE PIRELLI STADIUM SHOULD THE BREWERS WIN ON SATURDAY

30 April 2015

If the title is won - Brewers fans can watch the celebrations at the Pirelli Stadium.

BURTON Albion fans will be able to watch their team being crowned champions of League Two at the Pirelli Stadium on Sunday – if the Brewers can complete the job at Cambridge on Saturday.


Albion travel to the Abbey Stadium knowing that a win will guarantee the title, which will be the icing on the cake after already securing promotion to League One for the first time in the club’s history.


They take a two-point lead over Shrewsbury into Saturday’s game and hope to go up as champions after a memorable season.


If they are successful, the trophy will not be presented to the team on away soil at Cambridge. Instead, the ceremony will take place at a celebration event at the Pirelli Stadium.

Burton Albion hope fans will then turn out in force to join the team in celebrating the success.


To make it a special family occasion, there will be activities for children and a chance for fans to meet their heroes with bar and refreshments available.


Burton Albion chairman Ben Robinson says: “It has already been a fantastic season, having secured promotion to League One.


“But if the team do win the title, and go up as champions, we want to give all our supporters the chance to celebrate with the team and watch them receive the trophy.


“It would be another fantastic achievement for the club and we hope Jimmy and the team can get the one more win they need to become champions.”


If the Brewers are confirmed as champions, the trophy will be presented to Burton Albion at the Pirelli Stadium at 3pm on Sunday 3rd May 2015 with free entry to the seats and terraces through the turnstiles open from 2.30pm.


Everyone is welcome to come to the ground and fans will want to grab their own pictures of a key moment in Burton Albion’s history.


It has been a memorable season for Albion, who only 13 years ago were playing in the Northern Premier League.


They secured promotion to the Football League for the first time in 2009.


The Brewers suffered play-off heartache after promotions pushes in the last two seasons.


Gary Rowett’s team were beaten in the play-off semi-finals by Bradford two years ago and lost in the final at Wembley to Fleetwood 12 months later.


After Rowett left to become manager of Birmingham City, former Holland international and Chelsea star Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink took over in November.


He has guided the Brewers to promotion, which was secured at Morecambe two week ago and was watched by more than 700 travelling fans.


On Saturday 2,000 Albion supporters will be heading to Cambridge aiming to cheer the Brewers onto the title.
