ROTHERHAM United have asked if they can have a home game for their opening fixture for 2012/13 so that they can start next season in the New York Stadium.
The club have contacted the Football League to make the request for the first Saturday of next season, August 18.
They will not know if the request will be granted until after the play-offs have been completed.
The fixtures are due out on June 18. But they could be playing there beforehand anyway - the Carling Cup first round is on August 14.
