Official Doncaster Rovers Statement

Official Doncaster Rovers Statement

The Doncaster Rovers Football Club have issued an official statement regarding the ticketing policy for the JPT Trophy final.

Doncaster Rovers would like to issue some additional information regarding the sale of tickets for the JPT Grand Final at the Millennium Stadium on Sunday April 1st.

The club have received an initial ticket allocation of 21,500 tickets. Obviously additional tickets are available subject to demand upto an expected maximum of 32,000 tickets which we can make available for Rovers fans.

With these figures in mind the decision was made to limit initial Season Ticket purchases to 2 tickets per season ticket. With over 5,000 season ticket holders now at the club, if we had offered each season ticket holder 4 tickets then the entire first allocation could have been taken by season ticket holders, and also with 3 different categories of seat it could also have meant that season ticket holders themselves would not have had the full range of seat options to pick from.

The club do appreciate the loyalty shown by all season ticket holders, and under the ticket purchasing rules ALL season ticket holders are GUARANTEED 2 seats at the Millennium Stadium and with the full choice of seat prices which cannot be guaranteed to be available for non-season ticket holders.

Additionally the club are bound under the instructions given by the Millennium Stadium as to the order in which tickets must be sold, and must be sold specifically 'block by block' in a set order starting at the halfway line. The reason for this is that if either club fail to sell their allocation then the unsold seats can easily be made available to the other club and segregated accordingly. We do understand that these rules mean that fans cannot pick the location of their seats, but unfortunately there is nothing that we can do to change this rule and ask all fans not to direct any complaints to Doncaster Rovers on this subject.

All season ticket holders are also reminded that they can purchase upto 4 additional tickets when they go on general sale next week, although unfortunately those tickets will not be in the same area as the original 2 tickets.

Everyone at the club wishes for the Grand Final day to be a fantastic experience for all fans and we offer our apologies to any supporters who feel inconvenienced by these rules. Please continue to support the team both at the Keepmoat Stadium in the upcoming League One matches, and at the Millennium Stadium on April 1st.
