Following several discussions with the Trust this week, and after consultation with both the Police and the GSO, the Club have decided to open the Willbutts Lane Stand for home supporters for the FA Cup match against Bromley. There will be a segregated area in between the Bromley supporters
We recognise that supporters were concerned about the Pearl Street Stand not being open for this fixture, and it has been decided to close it purely as a cost saving measure. We hope that fans will understand this, and perhaps take the rare opportunity to watch the match from the Willbutts.
Facilities in the Willbutts are superb, with an excellent unobstructed view of the action. In addition, there are catering kiosks together with a bar underneath the stand so supporters can enjoy a pre match or half time pint should they wish.
Importantly, it will now be possible to pay cash on the day for supporters using the Willbutts.
Please note that entry to the Main Stand will remain by ticket only , whilst those supporters who prefer to stand can pay cash on entry to the Sandy Lane End.
Rochdale AFC are very much looking forward to hosting Bromley next weekend, and we hope that as many supporters as possible will come and support the team.
