Date published: February 25, 2022


Due to a change in operating procedure, only half of the main stand will be open during Sunday’s game between Rochdale Hornets and Barrow Raiders in the fourth round of the Betfred Challenge Cup.

East Main Stand (to the right of the stand), blocks A, B and C will be accessible from turnstiles 1-3. The main west stand will be closed.

Stadium capacity is limited to 920, including reception, press and guest areas. Fans of both clubs are advised to book early as play could reach capacity and sell out.

Parking will be free on a first-come, first-served basis with parking open from 1 p.m. Parking attendants will assist you upon arrival.

A Rochdale Hornets spokesperson said: “Unfortunately we are unable to provide the scoreboard for the game against Barrow but hope we can in the future.

“We look forward to welcoming both sets of fans for what should be a fantastic Betfred Challenge Cup fourth round contest.”

Prices are £15 for adults, £10 for concession and £5 for students with FOC juniors. There will be no cash turnstiles and entry is only available via tickets.

You can buy tickets in advance through the website or pay cash or card at the box office on match day. However, fans are advised to expect ticketing delays if they choose to purchase on the day.

There will be no catering booths available but the 1907 lounge is open to all fans for drinks and counter service for catering.
