STADIUM ADDRESS

Eco-Power Stadium

Stadium Way

Doncaster

DN4 5JW

ABOUT THE GROUND

After 84 years of playing at their old Belle Vue ground, Doncaster moved to the now Eco-Power Stadium in 2007.

The ground is totally enclosed by four covered stands, with the stands behind the goals being identical in size and design. 

City supporters will be located in the North Stand this evening.

ABOUT THE OPPOSITION

Grant McCann’s Rovers sit 19th in Sky Bet League Two, nine points above the relegation zone. 

They have won just a third of their games this campaign with their last victory coming against Colchester United, where they ran out 3-1 winners.

Over 30 games into his second spell in the dugout at the Eco-Power Stadium, former Hull City and Peterborough United chief Grant McCann has won as many as he has lost after rejoining the South Yorkshire outfit in May.

Over his managerial career, McCann has a higher win percentage while in the Doncaster hot seat than in any of his previous jobs, as he hopes to improve on Rovers' 18th-placed finish last season.

CAR PARKING 

Five accessible parking bays are available to reserve for £5 by calling 01302 762576 (option 1). 

Regular parking can be secured by CLICKING HERE. The charge increases to £6 on matchday, and is CASH ONLY. 

Popular amongst away fans is the Potteric Carr Industrial Estate, which is a five-minute walk from the stadium and priced at £4. 

ENTERTAINMENT AND REFRESHMENTS

To eat:

A Beefeater restaurant is also located near Stadium Way, which you should see as you drive towards the ground.

Kiosks are also open inside the away end at the stadium, serving traditional kiosk food such as pies. 

PLEASE NOTE: All kiosks inside the Eco-Power Stadium are completely cashless. 

To drink:

There is not much in the way of pubs, as the Eco-Power Stadium is situated on the outskirts of Doncaster’s city centre, so the aforementioned Beefeater and in-stadium facilities are the closest places for refreshments.

Doncaster’s town centre is a 30-minute walk from the ground where City fans can celebrate the festive season in popular pub chains such as Wetherspoons and Yates'.

If you are arriving by train into Doncaster Railway Station, there is the Draughtsman Alehouse on Platform 3B, which is 10 minutes from the ground in a car or taxi. The Railway pub on West Street, near to the station, is also popular amongst visiting supporters.

GETTING THERE

By car:

From the A1, join the M18 Eastbound at Junction 35, or from the M1, join the M18 Eastbound at Junction 32.

Once on the M18, leave at Junction 3 and take the A6182 towards Doncaster.

By train:

Doncaster Station is just less than two miles away and a bus service is available from the Transport Interchange, which is attached to the Train Station.

By bus:

Buses leave Doncaster Frenchgate Interchange direct to the ground as follows:

- service 72 at every quarter past and to the hour

- service 56 on every hour and half-hour

The journey time is approximately 10 minutes on both routes.

PYROTECHNICS AND BEHAVIOUR

The club would like to remind supporters the possession or use of pyrotechnics inside a football ground is strictly prohibited. Those found to be carrying or using pyrotechnics will face a long-term ban.

We would like to remind supporters it is a criminal offence to enter the pitch at any time. Anyone who does so without permission can expect to face prosecution.

The club outlined its stance on pyrotechnics last season, following incident during our home match against Newport County, and away match at Crewe Alexandra. These statements can be read HERE and HERE

The club would also like to take the opportunity to remind supporters of the zero-tolerance approach towards missile throwing, after an incident in City's home match against Harrogate Town in the Emirates FA Cup last season. 

Bradford City AFC would like to remind supporters that the strongest condemnation is employed towards anti-social behaviour, crowd disorder and misconduct, and illegal activity inside football stadia. 

Our stance on the above will ensure the strongest-possible action continues to be taken against those found guilty of any offence, including the issuing of Football Banning Orders. 

The club reiterated its stance on this following an incident at our recent Bristol Street Motors Trophy game against Manchester City Under-21s. CLICK HERE to read the statement.  

This follows the implementation of the 'Love Football, Protect the Game' initiative reinforced last season, by the EFL, FA and Premier League. For full details, please CLICK HERE

Visiting Bantams should expect light rain and a moderate breeze in Doncaster, with highs of 11°C and a 52% chance of rain.
