Rotherham United and Rotherham Titans will NOT be sharing a ground. That's the news that came out of talks this week between both clubs and Rotherham Borough Council.
It was expected that the clubs would share a new community stadium that is being planned but after this weeks meeting it would seem that the two clubs will be playing at different venues.
Speaking to The Advertiser, Millers Chairman, Tony Stewart, said, 'We have agreed that the needs for the football and rugby clubs differ and therefore we need to consider two separate venues.'
Titans Chairman, Nick Cragg agreed saying, 'We have aspirations for Rotherham Titans and we want to see the club succeed. We need to be confident that any future development can accommodate us appropriately. Titans will continue to work with the local authority, and others, to identify ways that will take us forward in the future.'
Rotherham Borough Council Chief Executive, Mike Cuff said, 'We will work with both clubs to help them meet their aspirations and needs. We are determined that each is given the opportunity to develop proposals for facilities that they want and that will be the most benefit not only for their players but also for their fans.'
At present, the Titans are playing at Clifton Lane but to revive any chance they have of getting back into the Premiership they need a new ground. And, as we know, the Millers have to be back in Rotherham within four years - that's for the start of the 2012/13 season.
Mr Stewart said, 'I want to see Rotherham United playing in Rotherham as soon as possible and we have to look at how that can be done. We are still in the early stages and we will embrace the needs of the local community as and when we have the right specifications for football.'
