RUFC - Council say 'prove it'

RUFC - Council say 'prove it'

Rotherham United Chairman, Denis Coleman and manager, Mark Robins have both, in recent weeks, asked for more bums on seats at Millmoor - and now Mr Coleman has asked the fans to come out in force to prove to the Council that we have a need for a new stadium.

According to The Advertiser a site for a new stadium has been earmarked and is just weeks away from being unveiled but the Chairman thinks there is still some convincing to be done.

Saturday, 19th January has been designated FANS' DAY and the club hope to send out a message to the Council that would justify building a new home for Rotherham United.

'Fans' day is being organised to convince the doubters that we need a new location and we desperately need a full Millmoor on 19th January to prove it.

'I know there are people out there. Our relegation decider against MK Dons a couple of seasons ago was a sell out with a request from another two and a half thousand people for tickets.

'Millmoor is run down and that is why the crowds are poor at the moment, but with the right team and the right facilities the crowds will come.

'Make no mistake, the club's future depends on it.'

Mr Coleman and Mike Cuff, Council Chief Executive, confirmed that the club and council had been in discussion about a community stadium for some time and Mr Cuff said, 'We are pleased to be working with the football club and, as a local authority, we appreciate the important role that the development of a community stadium could play in the borough's regeneration and in generating local pride.

'We are exploring ways to bring the project to fruition and hopefully early next year we will be in a better position to announce some of the ideas being examined at the moment.'

Mr Coleman sent out this message to the people of Rotherham, 'It is in your hands now. Without your support we won't even get to the next stage.'

I think it's been a poor showing by the fans this season so far BUT the pricing structure hasn't helped

From what I've been told today, the new stadium is a definite! Site has been sorted. Things, for a change, at Millmoor are looking positive!
