Important Rotherham match information

11 April 2014

The football club would like to pass on some important details to City supporters ahead of this Friday (11 April 2014) evening's Sky Bet League 1 fixture with Rotherham United at New York Stadium.

The football club would like to remind supporters that this Friday's game will kick off at 7:52pm - seven minutes later than a usual evening kick off time to mark the 25th anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster.

There will also be a minute's silence ahead of the match at New York Stadium to allow supporters to pay their respects to the 96 Liverpool fans who tragically lost their lives during the Reds' F.A Cup Semi-Final with Nottingham Forest in Sheffield back in 1989.

The club would also like to remind fans of some information passed on by South Yorkshire Police earlier this week regarding train travel after the match.

The final train this Friday night from Rotherham through to Bradford is scheduled to depart at 9:42pm. 

With the game set to kick off at 7:52pm, the match is unlikely to finish before 9:45pm, meaning most fans will miss the last train.

Club officials at Rotherham United will also like to inform City fans that there is no free parking available around New York Stadium.

The nearest parking area for Bradford supporters is an NCP car park situated in Rotherham town centre. There is also a car park located on Sheffield Road.

If driving to the ground, the best postcode to use is S60 1QY (nearby Police Station on Main Street). New York Stadium's actual postcode isn't recognised by some Sat-Navs given the fact that it was only opened around two years ago.

Finally, the club have been made aware of a designated exit strategy from the ground that will affect all supporters leaving New York Stadium after the game this evening. 

At the end of the game with Rotherham, home fans will be directed towards Don Street whilst City supporters will exit via New York Way leading to Main Street. 

These restrictions - put in place by South Yorkshire Police - are anticipated to be in place for up to 20 minutes after the final whistle has blown.
