New Doncaster Stadium: Ticketing

New Doncaster Stadium: Ticketing

The actual physical capacity of the stadium is 15,231.

A minimum actual capacity of 90% of this has already been agreed with the Safety Committee, and it hoped this will be raised to 100% after the Open Day and Lakers` match on 27 December have tested all safety procedures.

Ticket prices will be determined by the Rovers, not the SMC

Prices for the rest of this season will be £21 adult (£15 concessions and U11) in "A" blocks (in the centre of the East and West stands), £18 adult (£12 concessions, £5 U11) in "B" blocks (East, West, South, and North stands), and £15 adult (£8 concessions, £5 U11) in "C" blocks (all four corners).

Away fans will pay the same prices (£18 and £15, plus concessions) in the North Stand, as home fans in the South Stand, as required by Football League rules as the facilities are identical.

The away section is designed to allow alternative capacities for visiting fans, dependent on away demand and anticipated home sales, with actual capacity options being 1,345, 2,073, and 3,344.

Visiting fans will have their own refreshment facilities regardless of which capacity they are allocated, and doors in the concourse will separate them from home fans.

Under Football League and FA rules visiting fans are entitled to 10% of home capacity (League matches), 15% FA Cup (up to the Quarter Final) and 25% in the quarter final.

Total capacity may be reduced if segregation by seat netting is required.

Huddersfield will initially be given the 2,073 allocation, and get no more than that allocation unless Rovers don`t sell the remainder to home fans.

250 tickets for every event (including Rovers` matches) are available for Council distribution free to schools, youth organisations, junior football teams, etc. Anyone interested in applying for these tickets should contact the SMC.

The 250 tickets for the Huddersfield game have already been allocated to TraxFM as a promotion.

None of the free tickets will ever go to Council, SMC, Rovers`, or contractors` employees.

Complimentary ticket distributed in small numbers by the Rovers will be on the basis of Rovers paying the appropriate ticket price percentage to the SMC. Complimentary ticket numbers are in any case strictly limited by Football League regulations.

Match day stewards and gate staff (who will be SMC employees) will not have free seats as part of their conditions of service.

Home fans sitting in different price category seats will be prevented where possible from occupying vacant higher priced seats by stewards, although there will be no fences separating these areas.

Consideration will be given to fans wanting to exchange season tickets already purchased for alternative areas of the stadium, although no refund will be made if the area chosen is in a cheaper price category.

Fans will be able to return season ticket vouchers and purchase alternative seats, (for example to buy two seats together when a friend or relative is accompanying them) by doing so at the ticket office.

Huddersfield tickets will go on sale at Belle Vue from 11 December (9.00 am) and from the Keepmoat Stadium ticket office from 17 December (I.e. it will be open for ticket sales on the Open Day). Thereafter, both ticket offices will operate in tandem for a short overlapping period.

Huddersfield tickets will not initially be available on-line, although this facility will be introduced later.

Tickets for the Rovers away fixtures will also be sold by the SMC. However, the same rules for season ticket holders and all the other fans will apply as per the usual Rovers` policy.

SMC ticket office hours will be flexible to ensure it meets all demand. At busy times there will be six windows open.

No charge will be levied for reserve team fixtures at least for the remainder of this season.
