Vale to celebrate past glories at Burton game

Port Vale will be marking two of the greatest moments in the club’s history during the home game against Burton Albion on April 5th.

To mark the occasion of Vale’s last promotion in 1994, the club will allow fans into the ground for 1994 prices of £9 for adults and £6.50 for concessions.

Beer prices in Tommy Cheadle’s will also be reduced to just £1 a pint from from 6.15pm until kick-off at 7.45pm.

A selection of hits from 1994 will be played over the tannoy (beware Vale fans, the “Power of Love” by Celine Dion was popular that year!) while home shirts will be on sale from £19.94 until April 5th.

The club intend to jointly mark the 1993/4 season – the last time the club won promotion – and the 20th anniversary of the club’s Wembley win in the Autoglass Trophy final.

Photos will be taken of five supporters during the Burton game and tweeted the following day through the @OfficialPVFC Twitter account with one fan winning a free season ticket and the other four offered the chance to buy one at the 1994 price of £127.

The club will also be handing out clap banners (a paper-based noisemaker, our research tells us) before the game, courtesy of sponsors techmanagementuk.

Chairman Paul Wildes commented: “The Burton game is a critical one for us and it would be great if we can fill Vale park with as many fans as possible.

“This is about celebrating our past and supporting our future.

“It will be great to remind everyone of the successes of 1994, but we also want to create our own success.

“It would be great if we can do that sooner rather than later, but we are not taking anything for granted.

“That’s why the support of our fan-base is critical to the club.

“Hopefully, everyone will come down, reminisce about old times and back the team for our penultimate home game of the season.”
