RUFC - Board Statement on New Ground

RUFC - Board Statement on New Ground

Rotherham United Board of Directors have issued a statement in this weeks Rotherham Advertiser about plans between themselves and the council for a new community stadium.

As Rotherham Vital said last week on the forum and this week in a short article and statement from the council, it really looks like plans are going to go ahead for a new ground.

The Board say, 'At the end of this year (2008) the club will either be looking forward to a brand new state of the art stadium - or looking to a bleak existence at Millmoor.'

They then go on to say that the choice is not only between the club and Rotherham Borough Council but also with us, the people of Rotherham.

'Just before Christmas, the chief executive of the Borough Council, Mike Cuff, announced that the council were approving the plans for a community stadium - which is the first time this had actually been made public. As a club we saw this as an immense step forward with our plans to move out of Millmoor and continue the clubs growth up the Football League structure.

'The council have made it clear that they want a Football League Club in the town and as we are experiencing a good run of form at the moment we need the people of Rotherham to back us and show the doubters that we still have an appetite for League football.'

The Millers next home game, against Wycombe Wanderers, is being made a special game with the board wanting to fill Millmoor and are offering special prices for the game - tickets will be £15 and fans will be able to pay on the day; senior citizans and juveniles will be £5 and Under12's £1 and that's for anywhere in the ground.

So, come on, support the club, support the board and help them to achieve a United front.
