BURTON Albion will be producing a matchday programme for the 2018/19 season despite an EFL vote that means producing one is no longer compulsory.
The programme is a popular part of the matchday experience at the Pirelli Stadium and features columns by chairman Ben Robinson and manager Nigel Clough as well as a player interview and all the latest Brewers news.
The EFL annual general meeting saw clubs vote to remove the obligation to print a programme at every home game.
Championship, League One and League Two clubs can now make the decision on a match-by-match basis as to whether or not to produce a programme.
Burton Albion will be producing a full matchday programme for all League One games although, as in previous seasons, a smaller programme will be printed for pre-season friendlies and some cup games.
Fleur Robinson said: “I want to thank all our sponsors and partners whose support helps us to continue to produce a programme at a reasonable price. We know many of our fans and visiting supporters enjoy reading the programme and we will be again producing a full Matchday Brewer next season.
“With the availability of information through a variety of media and increasing printing costs we understand the decision made at the EFL AGM but while our commercial partners continue to support us, and our fans still buy the programme in sufficient numbers, we will continue to produce a programme for the forseeable future.”
