We asked for your memories of the day and we were inundated with tweets, pictures and terrific tales! Kicking off with our very own Club Journalist David Clayton's story, here they are!
"Getting a ticket for Ewood Park was like finding hen’s teeth. If you didn’t have enough season-ticket points, the chances of getting hold of a ticket in the Darwen End – which houses approximately 8,000 fans – were slim to none.
"With respect to Blackburn who were averaging around 19,000, we knew there would be as many as 5,000 seats likely to be available around the ground. I was lucky in that my wife’s aunt was from Blackburn and her dad was a season-ticket holder.
"He promised to get me a ticket sat with him and his friends in the old Riverside Stand and so I travelled down with about eight friends in two cars, parking about a mile away from the ground.
"It was a baking hot day and there were thousands of City fans everywhere, with everyone in a party mood – yet still incredibly pessimistic about what would happen!
"It was clear that thousands of other City fans were dotted around the ground and it’s probably fair to estimate there were anywhere between 12 and 15,000 City fans inside Ewood that day.
"Many, like me, initially kept their cover as the teams came out and though the people sat around me knew I was a Blue, everyone was good natured and happy enough if City got the point needed to go up.
"When Shaun Goater equalised, pockets of Blues everywhere leapt to their feet, as did I, offering a quick apology to those immediately around me as the relief poured out around Ewood Park. The home support – by and large – accepted it was futile arguing with the City fans sat (now stood) around them and took it on the chin.
CITY+ WATCH TOGETHER | Blackburn 1-4 City: Sat 9 May 2020
"As each goal went in thereafter, so the celebrations became freer and at a conga started at the bottom of the Riverside Stand.
"It was the proverbial carnival atmosphere and I made my down to the bottom left of the stand near the Darwen End where most City fans were now congregating. I called my brother just as Paul Dickov sealed the win and not long after, the final whistle went.
"As Rovers fans poured out of the ground, the thousands of City fans who had not made it in poured in.
"It was bizarre – there were actually more coming in than going out and on the final whistle everyone headed on to the pitch in a celebratory invasion, fuelled by relief and joy that we were finally back in the Premier League.
"It was an unforgettable day to be a Blue."
In the Blackburn end and had stayed reasonably well restrained until the Goat scored. As soon as that hit the net I went loopy and soon realised the majority around me were City as well ... great day and easily still in my top ten games with #mcfc— Andy Leggott (@andyleg66) April 5, 2020
Myself and @BluemoonBreheny were there, lucky enough to get tickets, after driving to Ewood Park with 2 friends who watched it in the pub near the ground. On the pitch at the end, and back to Albert Square after the game and I got stuck at the top of the statue 😳 💙💙💙— Paul Longden 💙 #StayHomeSaveLives (@Pablo_MCFC) May 5, 2020
Was in City end, top tier. Mate I was with wouldn't take lucky jumper off despite it being about 90 degrees. Remember watching City tops emerging in the home end through the game— Dino (@Dino_Visco) April 5, 2020
Had to leave ground to get on the pitch with one poor steward trying to stop thousands rushing in
The weaver save and he sits on it if I recall??— Arron Smith (@ArronSm90735272) April 5, 2020
Was 7 at the time and remember the trip to mcdonalds my GD promised if we won. City fans waving there scarfs out the window of there cars going crazy on the horn and in the streets
The high I felt when Kennedy got the third was indescribable. How many times did they hit the post in the first half, torture. Especially after our pitch invasion after the Birmingham game.— Andy Taylor (@andytaylorsgst) April 6, 2020
Main thing I remember from the game was the noise as each city goal went in. It was deafening! And then on the final whistle the celebrations were amazing. A great away day. I think you can see my dad in one of the pics you posted. Mark Kennedy celebration with Joe royle. 2/2— Christopher Lester (@ChrisL_Design) May 2, 2020
couldn’t get tix, friend+I got 2 from her colleague in home end as they went in corporate. Max Farnham from Brookside sat at end of the row, glared when when I jumped up after we scored 😂After 2nd goal realised most of the back of the stand was blues 💙awesome day 💙— 🦄Jewels 🐝💙 (@JuetheBlue) April 24, 2020
A Blackburn football coach came to the kids school and offered tickets to any game of our choice I quickly realised we were there last game of the season Booked 30 tickets 15 adults 15 (ahem ) kids All sat together in the Jack Walker Stand What a Day 😁— Andy Rawcliffe (@andyraw65) April 5, 2020
20 years!!! Remember like it was yesterday. Watching the match at my uncle’s house. Went driving down in the car down Deansgate with my dad with the roof down sat on the back waving my flag and getting high fives off strangers.— Max Kersh (@maxkersh) April 5, 2020
The only time I have ever been part of a pitch invasion. Couldn't resist kissing that goal post!— Peter Kay (@petekaygolf) April 5, 2020
I had to work that day but had the radio on in the office. Customers were puzzled at my random cheers and clapping— Kelly (@nel_kelvin) April 5, 2020
My memory is on that hill. Managed to get in the ground for the last 10 mins or so.— David Leach (@MCdave2010) April 5, 2020
Sat in the top tier with my dad, grandad & mate. Remember going mad after the goat's equaliser & being gutted u couldn't access the pitch afterwards as the top tier exit takes u straight outside with no route to the lower 😂 #takingoverblackburnrovers— Benjani (@BenWarburton83) April 5, 2020
Remember the eight-year-old me moaning like mad to my dad about the sun being in my eyes as we were going into the ground. Some fella overheard and plonked his cap on my head.— Andriano (@andy751992) April 5, 2020
