rotherham United are aiming to have success off the field as well as on it at their new stadium and are already seeing things take off with the New York Stadium scheduled to be ready in just over a month’s time.

They have launched an exclusive sports and business club which will provide matchday facilities the club could only have dreamed of a few years ago. The new 1925 Club is named after the year the club took its present name after the amalgamation of Rotherham County and Rotherham Town.

“This will be a fabulous sporting venue, an iconic emblem for Rotherham and South Yorkshire, and the centrepiece is going to be the 1925 Club which I think will be stunning,” said Millers chairman Tony Stewart.

“It is important we offer excellent facilities and the right matchday experience and I believe The New York Stadium facilities will offer exclusive experiences and opportunities for sponsors, businesses and supporters alike to enjoy a successful future together.We are offering a unique opportunity for businesses across the region to be a part of an exciting new era.

“Every detail has been designed to make matchdays at the 1925 Club as special as possible, whether entertaining business clients, rewarding staff or simply relaxing and enjoying the game.”

Stewart is delighted at the way supporters have responded and more than doubled season ticket sales but is determined to ensure there is a successful corporate side to the club and to attract businesses... “and we have world-class facilities,” he said.

There will be three levels of packages for the 1925 Club and several local businesses have already joined the new hospitality club.
