Rotherham United – New York Stadium

Following four seasons of “exile” at Sheffield’s Don Valley Stadium, the Millers have returned to Rotherham. Their brand new, eye-catching stadium is situated alongside the River Don, in an area colloquially known as “New York,” from whence the stadium takes its name. The new ground, an all-seater affair, with a capacity of 12,000, had a build cost in the region of £20 million.

It is completely enclosed by four, single-tier stands. The Eric Twigg Foods & Pukka Pies Stand occupies the west side of the ground and is the largest of the stands. Opposite is the Ben Bennett (East) Stand, which is slightly less in height than the stands behind the goals. This unadorned structure has 2 large areas towards its front, which provide facilities for disabled fans. The KCM Recycling (North) Stand and the Morrisons (South) Stand are very similar, except that the latter has a small electronic scoreboard towards its rear. The stepped roof of the stadium is an unusual feature, with a great deal of transparent Perspex used in an effort to improve the amount of light reaching the pitch and to improve the general aesthetic quality.

The Morrisons Stand can house up to 2,500 away supporters at the southern end of the ground. The seating in this stand is arranged at a steep angle, so that fans are located near the pitch. Given the freshness of the new ground, it seems reasonable to expect decent facilities and an excellent view of the play.

New York Stadium History

After being forced to abandon their historic home of Millmoor and temporarily relocate to Don Valley Stadium in Sheffield, New York Stadium was built to give Rotherham United a new permanent home.

In 2010, Rotherham received planning clearance, and work began in the summer of 2011. The stadium cost £20 million to build.

In the summer of 2012, Rotherham held a series of activities to gradually open the New York Stadium. On the 18th of August 2012, they faced Burton Albion in their league game at the New York Stadium (3-0).

The stadium was named after the Guest and Chimes steel factory, which originally stood on the site and supplied the city of New York with fire hydrants.

There are 600 VIP seats available at New York Stadium. Another 4,000 seats can simply be added to the stadium.
