Blackpool Fans To Stay Away From Tomorrow’s Game Against Leeds And Watch AFC Blackpool In Protest

Blackpool players could walk out tomorrow to an empty stadium when they prepare to face Leeds in their Championship tie as fans prepare to watch a non-league team instead.

Fan group Tangerine Knights have taken the decision to stay away from their beloved Bloomfield Road tomorrow in a protest at the club’s owners, the Oyston family.

Supports are being urged to instead go and watch local non-league team AFC Blackpool in their match against Bootle.

The Seasiders have had an awful season and look destined to be plying their trade in League One next season as they sit 18 points from safety with only eight games remaining.

And fans have had enough with the Tangerine Knights urging fans to boycott tomorrow’s game in protest against Karl Oyston.

Steve Smith of the Knigts told the Blackpool Gazette:

Enough is enough, Tuesday’s loss at home to Charlton 
Athletic showed just how many Blackpool fans are now boycotting Bloomfield Road.

We need to show the Oyston family the fans will no longer put up with them as custodians of our once proud club.

We will not stop until they leave Bloomfield Road. And we call upon them again to put the club up for sale.

Fans will first of all protest outside Bloomfield Road before heading to the non-league game.
