Rotherham United: Club Profile
Our head-to-head record against Rotherham United was alright after two games. Then it started to go a bit wrong for us; promotion from League Two in 2011 somehow having a knock-on effect. It technically counts as an upset that we lost to the Millers in the 2012-3 FA Cup First Round; us being one division higher. Those roles have since reversed, with the Millers climbing up into the Championship in 2014. And in 2018. And in 2020.
Players For Us... and Them
Rotherham United Ground Information
Away Fans’ Stand
Facilities for Disabled Fans
Away fans with a visual impairment can take advantage of a match commentary service. For a headset, you must book 24 hours in advance. A deposit is also needed on the day of the match.
In the south stand where away fans are accommodated, there are wheelchair and helper platforms – as well as accessible toilets. But there is no parking at the ground itself. You can use the drop off points outside the North West or East corners of the stadium.
The Bridge Inn is said to be the main pub for travelling fans. It’s near to the station and does what you need it to. Otherwise, you might want to head into the town centre for a wider choice; all of which are just a few minutes’ walk from the New York Stadium.
Rotherham United Travel Information – Distance: 146 miles
The best option for Rotherham is to go north on the M1. You won’t be interrupted after you join the M1 until you reach South Yorkshire. Here, you’ll leave the motorway at Junction 33 for the A630. At the roundabout, take the third exit onto the Rotherway and continue across four roundabouts. Turn right onto Don Street after the council offices, and the New York Stadium will be the second turning on your right.
With the exception of disabled fans, there are no parking facilities at the ground. You can find an NCP in the town centre or a pay and display on Sheffield Road, however. These – apparently – are both just 10 minutes on foot from the ground.
Forge Island car park across from the stadium may also be an option; free of charge on a Saturday being the obvious draw there.
