RUFC - Millers stadium could have been like B2net
Rotherham United will travel to the B2net on Friday night for their first ever visit and Millers Chairman, Tony Stewart has revealed that the Millers new stadium could well have been very similar to Chesterfields new stadium.
As we all know, the Millers new stadium, which will be up and running for the start of the 2012/13 season, is going to be a bowl but it has been revealed that the architects of the B2net stadium were on the final short list to build Rotherham's new stadium.
Speaking to Les Payne of The Star, Tony Stewart said, 'We were impressed with their architects and if it had not had the look of a 'sister` of the B2net Stadium then we might have had that. Actually, who knows what would have happened if Chesterfield had not had a new stadium last year.
'But we really like the one we've selected.
'While we've been looking around and assessing things our friends at Chesterfield football club have been very good with us and have given us tips and pointers on things to consider.
'We really like the one we've selected. When it is finished everything will be there and in place, it will be a turnkey operation.'
Tomorrow's game is a sell-out and, after the game, the South Yorkshire, Derbyshire and Chesterfield Police have advised Millers fans that they will be kept in their seats for ten minutes to allow the home fans to disperse and allow for congestion to ease around the stadium. It is likely that the Police will escort any fans travelling by train back to the station.
The game is live on Sky Sports 2 from 7.30pm
