BLUES fans making the trip to Bury on August 8 are being offered the chance to watch the game as VIPs.

The Gigg Lane hosts have made special hospitality packages available to visiting supporters in order to make it a night to remember - without having to spend a fortune.

Supporters opting to take up the VIP package will enjoy reserved car parking and a bucks fizz reception, before sitting down at 6pm for a four-course pre-match meal in Starkies Pitchside Restaurant.

Fans will then get the chance to take their seat alongside players and dignitaries in the directors' box when the action gets underway, with a complimentary programme, full bar facilities, half-time refreshments and fun quizzes and competitions completing the package.

All this is available for £35 per person (£25 for juniors), with further details on how to book available from the Bury's commercial department on 0161 705 2144 or by e-mailing

All bookings must be made in advance.
