Rochdale is, as we’ve already mentioned, in Greater Manchester. If you can get yourself to the home of Manchester United and Manchester City, then you won’t be too far away from Spotland. Here are some of the usual routes that people consider: The stewarding was friendly. Barnsley sold around 1400 tickets so the atmosphere in the away area was rowdy. Barnsley romped home 4-0 with Keiffer Moore scoring a hat trick.

The record attendance at the ground was set just after the Second World War when 24,231 people turned up to see The Dale play against Notts County. Sadly the club didn’t go on to expand much in the second half of the 20th Century, with the current capacity less than half of that which attended the post-war game.For details of disabled facilities and club contact at the ground please visit the relevant page on the Level Playing Field website.

Supporters Coache A very accessible ground with easy street parking. The staff and stewards are friendly and the larger crowd than normal(Visit of Sunderland) mingled well. The chairman was full of praise for the exceptional away support and provided more seating by moving some of their own fans - a great gesture or a money making making scheme? The pitch was in good condition and the view was clear. A good away day out at a traditional old stadium.

Well-attended with great support. You have to choose carefully where to sit in the Main Stand as the dugout obscures viewing if sitting low down the terrace. Friendly staff.Parkin's replacement, Keith Hill, who was initially appointed as caretaker manager, became arguably the club's most successful manager to date. Hill and his assistant manager David Flitcroft led Rochdale to a 5th-place finish in 2007–08, securing a play-off place. After beating Darlington 5–4 on penalties in the semi-final, Rochdale reached Wembley for the first time in their history. Despite taking the lead in the match, they lost the final 3–2 to Stockport County. With regards to food, I intended to have a hot dog, however I was told that for that particular match they were only serving pies which was a bit of a disappointment.

Dale try and play footy the right way, only a long ball in emergencies, well done Keith Hill stick with it Rochdale AFC is a traditional football club playing in English League 1 at a 10,000 seater stadium that provides an friendly, safe and intimate football experience. A new feature for this year is Desmond's Den providing fun for young and older kids prior to and after the game. The prices are low for entry and for food and drink I got the train from Glasgow to Preston and then from Preston to Manchester Piccadilly. I then had the choice of the metro link from Piccadilly direct to Rocdale or the train from Victoria to Rochdale train station. I opted for the metro link as it's a shorter distance from to the ground than Rochdale train station. However the metro tram took just under an hour to get to Rochdale, so I decided that after the game that I would get the train back instead, as this took just 20 minutes to reach Manchester City Centre. I found the ground easily, it was around a 20 minute walk from Rochdale town centre.
We got a flyer out of the ground and we were quickly back in the car, with the Homer telling us our estimated arrival time back in Sheffield was 11pm. Little did he know that we would still be stood in a queue of traffic within a mile of the ground some 40 minutes later! It appeared that every single Blade had brought their own car and were all heading in the same direction. Eventually, and very belatedly, a police car blocked off a set of lights that was causing all the hold ups, and within minutes we were back on the M62, but this should have been done much sooner. We didn’t really mind though, as we were all in very good moods having gone back to our rightful place above Wednesday!* Please note that photo ID showing date of birth, needs to be provided to purchase an Under 22 ticket.
The event was sold out with almost 9,000 people attending, setting what was incorrectly claimed to be a new stadium record, even though Rochdale AFC had 24,231 for an FA Cup tie v Notts County in December 1949 and three higher crowds for FA Cup and play-off games between 1990 and 2008 against Northampton, Coventry and Darlington.</p> We had planned to visit the intriguingly named Cemetery pub, but with time running out we decided just to get parked and walk up to the stadium. We ended up being invited by a helpful steward into the Dale Bar at the ground, and despite being virtually the only away fans in the bar we were welcomed and treated well. I didn't hear one negative word toward us. Nice people and decent bar, well stocked and the service was excellent.
I was glad however that we had dined before the match; anyone looking forward to a pie at half-time was to be sorely disappointed, as food stocks had run out. This seemed poor planning on someones part, as they would surely have expected a fairly high turn out. To have run out before half time seemed pretty unbelievable. As for the much vaunted pies, the one I ate before kick-off was okay, but nothing to justify the fuss they seem to get.What you thought on seeing the ground, first impressions of away end then other sides of the stadium?
After beating promotion rivals Ipswich 1-0 on Saturday, Sunderland face Rochdale at the Stadium of Light tonight. Phil Parkinson's men sit 6th in the League One table, five points away from the. Rochdale Association Football Club is a professional football club based in the town of Rochdale, Greater Manchester, England. The club currently competes in League One, the third tier of the English football league system. Nicknamed 'the Dale', the club was founded in 1907, moved to its current stadium, Spotland Stadium, in 1920 and was accepted into the Football League in 1921. Since then, the club has remained in the third and fourth tiers of English football. With us in sixth position in the League and hoping for the play-offs and Rochdale in second hoping to cement their place in the automatic promotion places, it was going to be an interesting encounter. In spite of the League standings, Southend tend to do well against teams at the top yet not against teams at the bottom (we had lost to Wimbledon the previous week who were fighting relegation) so it was even more important that we got maximum points.The Dale formed in 1907 but didn’t enter the Football League until 1921. They have spent their entire history between the bottom two leagues in England. They have been promoted to the second-tier on three separate occasions, once in 1969, again in 2010 and most recently in 2014. They’ve never won a competition but they did reach the League Cup final in 1962 and are one of only two teams from the lower leagues to do so.
I took the supporters' bus to the game, which should have taken about five hours but due to an accident on the M1 ended up being closer to six, arriving at Spotland just before two. Obviously one of the benefits of going by coach is that parking is not an issue and we were dropped off outside the away stand.If walking from town you arrive at the away stand (with the convenient chippy opposite) so it's very easy to find your way in, and the club shop is also easy to find if you want to pay a visit. On entry, the stewards were polite enough but the kids and I had to go through separate turnstiles for some reason although they lead to the same place on the other side. On heading into the seating area, I was surprised to see that we appeared to have the biggest stand - albeit with the middle third roped off for us to sit in. The Dons had a couple of hundred supporters so there was plenty of room and the absence of pillars was a bonus. The ground has obviously been upgraded in recent years so the seated stands were tidy and the home terrace looks quite new too. globalsportsarchive.com provides you with unrivaled spectrum of sport results, statistics and rankings from competitions all over the world. Our live, in-depth sport statistics from 17 sports supplies unique and original insights for sport fans, journalists, football managers and players The main hospitality option at Spotland is The Club Lounge where you can enjoy a three-course meal before the game, cash bar facilities and a chance to meet the players and directors of Rochdale. Alternatively you could book yourself a box which comes with VIP treatment and a buffet amongst other things.
Rochdale played 36 consecutive seasons in the Football League's bottom division from 1974 to 2010, the longest time any team has been in the bottom division of the League, with some even derisively calling it "the Rochdale Division". The club has the lowest average position of all the clubs which have existed continuously in the Football League since its expansion to four divisions in 1921–22 (76th) and since its expansion to 92 clubs in 1950–51 (79th). Additionally, the club holds the distinction of having played the most seasons in the English Football League without either reaching the top two tiers (91 seasons as of 2018-19) or being relegated to the National League. Rochdale town centre is a little run down but it has a lovely welcoming feeling about the town and in the pubs. The club itself represents what it really means to be a football fan in my opinion. It is a friendly club that continues to compete without throwing millions of pounds around and I highly recommend a visit for all true football fans whether it be supporting their club or just as a neutral as it really is a good day out. If I were to move to the north-west then Rochdale would be the club I’d visit more frequently that the others.As a footballing spectacle, the match was average; bettered in every department by the atmosphere. Preston displaying exactly why they are so inconsistent, and the 'Dale struggling to get some points to lift themselves out of the dreaded drop zone. For the record, the match finished 1 - 1; but in truth, much as it pains me to say it, the Dale were the better side on the day and deserved all three points.There are two bars attached to the ground so we went into one of those as away fans were welcome. Very friendly and reasonable ale. Opposition View: Rochdale AFC 1 October 2018 Ahead of Tuesday night's clash at Spotland Stadium, we take a look from inside the opposition camp
Bus replacements around London made the train journey very unappealing so my wife and I decided to go by car. Relatively easy journey there coming off the M62 at J21 and heading towards the town centre. Rochdale council appear to have made all council car parks free at weekends, so that proved to be a bargain. The car park was about 10-15 minute walk from the ground and just on the edge of the town centre (near the Baum pub).It was a trip up to my family who live in Rochdale. I had already previously visited Spotland and was intending to take in another game in the area, but poor weather put paid to those games, so as Rochdale was still on, I decided to go there again.I visited the chip shop in Wilbutts Lane prior to the game, which is well known for being extremely popular for both sets of fans. I also enjoyed a pint of Somersby Cider in the Radcliffe bar before the game.Away supporters are housed on one side of the Willbutts Lane Stand, where around 1,500 fans can be housed. If demand requires it, then the whole of this stand can be given to visiting fans increasing the allocation to 3,650. The stand is normally shared with home supporters with away fans being seated towards the Sandy Lane End. The view of the action and facilities within are both pretty good. The acoustics are excellent, so away fans can really make some noise from within it. This, coupled with both home ends singing, makes for a good atmosphere. If Rochdale do score then 'Samba de Janeiro' blasts out around the ground from the p.a. system.

Train - Rochdale Railway Station is around 35 minutes walk from the stadium, or two miles in old money. It is served by trains from Manchester and Leeds.I usually travel by train, but that wasn't practical for a midweek evening kick off, so I got a lift with a friend. Finding a parking spot wasn't easy. We managed to squeeze into a space near a small parade of shops up the road from the Cemetery Hotel. The average best squad value is calculated by taking the keeper and the best 10 field players (regardless of position). It includes half of the youth bonus for U21 players From my Auntie's house it was around a one mile walk to Spotland, which took around 30 minutes. For anyone driving it's fairly simple to park in nearby streets.
Note: Flags indicate national team as defined under FIFA eligibility rules. Players may hold more than one non-FIFA nationality. I was impressed by the improvements. It's a neat little ground now. My memory was of paying extra to stand under cover under what was virtually a barn. I like watching from around the halfway line rather than behind the goals, so I was pleased with my seat. I became a founder member of FC United in the summer of 2005, but never expected to witness scenes such as those at Rochdale AFC's stadium on Friday night, when FC United won 3-2 This black and white kit was re-introduced in the 2007–08 season as the one-off centenary kit; the new Internazionale-influenced design which succeeded it was an amalgamation of the striped kit and the blue kit to herald the second century of Rochdale's existence. Between 2010 and 2012 Rochdale's shirts were predominantly blue with black pinstripes on the body and black sleeves.

The game was a humdinger, us being two up and eventually hanging on with nine men for a draw. A special mention to the stewards - they were excellent. An altercation with one of their players during the game incensed one of our fans in the front row so much that he was climbing over the barrier to get at the player. He refused to sit down for some 20 minutes, continuing to harangue the player concerned. In most other grounds (ours included) he would have quickly found himself on the pavement outside the stadium. The stewards however gently and patiently persuaded him to sit down, and then kept an eye on him and reminded him of this each time the offending player came near and he decided it was time to have another "chat" with the player. Very patient and professional stewarding. Sunderland AFC transfer and takeover new LIVE: Early team news, Rochdale build-up plus rivals target Cats striker Sunderland Echo 00:22.

Rochdale is a proper football club and you know that any Rochdale fan is a true football fan, living in the shadow of so many other clubs but persisting with a team that continues achieving mediocrity. It’s what football is really about for me so this fixture was one I was really looking forward to.. I had read on this site and others that parking was an issue, but we found the opposite.We drove past the ground (by the Cemetery) and at the main road junction turned right. There was loads of free unrestricted parking on the main road. Less than five minutes walk from the ground. It very easy to get in and out.Bus - There are a number of buses that run from Rochdale centre to Spotland Stadium, with First Group being the company that runs the buses in the Greater Manchester area. Their website has an excellent journey planner on it.
. 90+2 . Watmore cuts inside, Dobson turns inside the box but loses possession before he canget the ball away. 90 . Three minutes added 90 . The clock just ticking away here, very uneventful second half in comparison to the first. However, it is very much job done. 85 Substitutio The squad overview can be embedded on the own homepage via iframe. Please click the button Send inquiry which opens a new e-mail message. Please add the homepage on which the squad is supposed to be embedded We took the train down to Rochdale, (just one change at Wigan) and the journey was very easy. We had heard that there was a bit of a trek to the ground from the station but as we arrived in plenty of time, we decided to walk it. It is a fairly straightforward route but it does have a couple of hills and we found the Google maps estimate of 27 minutes to be a bit optimistic - it took us around 35 minutes at a reasonable pace.
It's a bit busy as you have cars coming out the ground all at once and the traffic backs up half a mile due to some traffic lights down the road, but walking was fine.One major reason why Spotland’s capacity was reduced was the response of the footballing world to the Taylor Report in the wake of the Hillsborough Disaster. All grounds in the Football League had to convert to all-seater, with Rochdale’s capacity dropping accordingly. That legislation was relaxed slightly for teams in the lower divisions and the stadium now includes some terraced sections.We were early so visited the Ratcliffe Arms on the main road, Sandy Lane which is within the car park entrance. We had conversed with local fans in Willbutts Lane and again in the Ratcliffe Arms whilst watching a premier rugby league match on a large tv screen and they were all particularly friendly, including the bar staff. It was a sunny dry day so we then sat in a little park opposite the ground and met up with another brother who had travelled up on a supporters coach.Taxi - A taxi from Rochdale Railway Station to the ground will cost about £10 and take just over five minutes.In the past I have always enjoyed visiting Spotland. Good little ground with decent views. And as a Northern Oxford fan it is fairly close to my adopted home of Sheffield.

Spotland Stadium can accommodate anywhere from 10 to 150 people for a range of events and functions. They offer a licensed bar, a stage, full catering if required and a whole host of conference and meeting rooms ideal for any event you fancy hosting in a storied ground in Greater Manchester.

The journey back was horrendous. The M62 was shut at Leeds and the A14 also at Cambridge. I rolled into bed at 3:45 am in the end!

The away fans get one side to themselves. The view from the away end is excellent and it cost £20 to get in. Pies looked fantastic but I didn’t actually try one and there was Thwaites available inside (although unfortunately only smooth flow from cans).
Traffic did not disperse too easily after the game, although whether that is in part due to the high number of away fans is hard to tell. It took at least half an hour before we reached the M62 and started to head over the Pennines in the twilight on the first part of our journey back to Kent.Toilet facilities were basic but fine, the catering staff were very friendly and the meat and potato pies are highly recommended! During the game, the Dons fans made up for our small numbers by making plenty of noise (buoyed by an early goal) but the Rochdale fans didn't really get going until they started pressing for an equalising goal late on. The atmosphere overall was decent and the stewards kept a watchful eye on us, but were not at all overbearing. Both teams were at the foot of the table and the game was predictably tight. Wimbledon started the stronger and took the lead early on, but Dale had the better of the second half and deserved their equaliser.4.

A police bomb disposal squad have been called to Rochdale stadium after a suspicious package has forced its evacuation.

The game was played in warm sunshine. The atmosphere was a bit subdued as Rochdale started tentatively and a defensive slip led to Southend grabbing the lead. Rochdale were playing a fast passing game and hit the bar, but their threat was reduced when their leading goal scorer Hogan was injured and had to limp off. Southend scored a 2nd just before half time and then straight from the kick in the 2nd half to go 3 up. Southend fans were in good voice throughout given a much needed away win. There is a food service area within the stand, offering the usual pies and drinks at reasonable cost. I can recommend the hot and tasty meat and potato pies at £3, and the beef pies were also popular. The stewards were relaxed and particularly friendly, and you could sit anywhere. The only gripe I have is that the sound system is poor and no one around me could understand any announcements including the team list being read out. The match program of 70 pages was £3 and a reasonable read. Transfers & rumours . Market values . Competition Being a night game it stood out from a distance with the floodlights. A proper old-school ground from the outlook - inside it's got 4 reasonably decent stands, the biggest of which we are slotted in along one touchline which seemed odd - there was a terraced stand to our right full of home fans.On-street parking is available near to the ground, with restrictions in place in some areas. There’s also parking at Oulder Hill Community School on Greave Avenue.The club crest used by Rochdale AFC focuses on a variant of the arms of the former County Borough of Rochdale. The coat of arms, based on those of the local and reputed Rochdale family with certain additions, was granted to the Borough by Herald's College in 1857. At its centre, a shield shows a sack of wool and a cotton plant, representing the local wool and cotton industries. Around the edge of the shield sit eight martlets (birds). These are taken from the Rochdale family coat of arms (mentioned above) and are widely used on heraldic devices. Above the shield and helm (in the position technically known as the "crest" in heraldry) more local industry representations are made by the inclusion of a fleece of wool (suspended by a band) and the iron centre of an old mill-stone (known as a mill-rind).

Rochdale had been on a 10-match winning run in League One. On the day they fell apart and Oxford played very well for a 4-0 win. Catering facilities are friendly and the ground has a relaxed feel.I had a couple of pints in the Wetherspoons pub in the town centre and then headed up to the Spotland football ground.Booked a pub stop in the Ratcliffe Arms behind the Sandy Lane end to watch the derby. Very spacious and a good mix of home and away fans. The chippy outside the away end was fantastic but long queues! The home fans were very friendly and were in a very good mood, I suppose the prospect of finally being promoted helped!

Disappointed that we let 2 points slip deep into injury time, but a draw was probably about right.

As I had my kids with me, the pub wasn't really an option, so we stopped off in a park for lunch and some local kids challenged my boys to a friendly match. A few 'robust' challenges and lots of goals later, it was declared honours even and a bit of good-natured banter followed as we headed to the ground.Rochdale's other significant rivalries have been with Halifax Town, Stockport County, Burnley, Wigan Athletic, Bolton Wanderers and Accrington Stanley. The atmosphere in the concourse at half time was electric, and as loud as I’ve ever heard during a half time break, as the Blades fans continued to sing and thoroughly enjoy the evening out. The second half was a bit of a damp squib football wise, with Doyle smashing in a 30 yarder to keep the Blades fans happy, but Rochdale must be commended for continuing to fight and make a game of it right to the end, scoring a second goal, which was cheered by the Blades fans who were thoroughly enjoying the banter with the home fans. They deserve great credit, and they are true football fans, as they are situated in an area with some big teams that they could support, but they are loyal to their team, even when they are rock bottom and getting a drubbing at home to a far superior side. The stewards and police handled the game very well, joining in the banter, and not trying to make 3.700 people sit down, which they had no intention of doing!

The clearly excellent chippy had too great a queue already, so due to the cold temperatures and young family in tow, I decided to get inside the ground and grab a hot drink. Although the seating is not unreserved, the stewards seemed to leave us well alone even though we were clearly not in our allocated seats; common sense perhaps prevailing that we had chosen our spot early to try guarantee our little one a half-decent view of the action. My brother and I were lucky and privileged enough to be given an impromptu stadium tour around Rochdale AFC's Spotland ground on Saturday. We were en route to Manchester to visit the National Football Museum and decided to stop off at Spotland and Bury's Gigg Lane on the way, to take pictures and have a look round Rochdale AFC är en engelsk professionell fotbollsklubb i Rochdale, grundad 1907.

Getting away was a nightmare. Getting from our parking spot on to the road and then onto the main road was difficult. It took us 45 minutes to get back to the motorway.

Crown Oil are very excited to announce that they have signed a record-breaking 5-year deal with Rochdale AFC. This deal means Crown Oil will continue to be the sponsor on Rochdale's kit along while also gaining the naming rights for Spotland Stadium. In the six-figure investment deal which has become the biggest in the history of Rochdale AFC. I would say that Spotland in my book, is one of the best footballing days out in the country. Friendly & knowledgeable fans, good stewards, good facilities, a couple of pubs located at the ground, a great range of pies on offer and not a bad atmosphere to boot. In other words, all the right elements to make for a great day out. Add a pretty lady on my arm, my team winning six nil and I'll think that I have been transported to heaven!
Stadium Layout. Spotland seating plan: Where To Drink. Studds, is the name of the Rochdale social club situated under the Pearl Street Stand. It serves food, has two TVs, and opens at midday on Saturdays, and from 6 pm for midweek matches. They do allow a few away fans in but you're probably best off keeping club colours covered Due to work commitments this would be my first game of the season after watching virtually every game home and away for the past few years.

The official Facebook page of Rochdale Football Club I sat in the Pearl Street Stand behind one goal. The view was okay, but they had left the poles up where the training goalkeeping net was, but this didn't bother me too much.Having parked up we walked back towards the station to meet up with others who had come by train (and bus replacements). We took in the Cask & Feathers, a short walk from the station, where they have a choice of ale and friendly service. From there we took in the Flying Horse Hotel which also had a decent range of ale and friendly staff and customers. Then we walked back to the Baum, which is my favourite pub in Rochdale with an excellent range of well kept ale. We got a couple of large taxis from there to the ground to speed things up – the taxi, which was a minibus, cost £5 between 9 of us! There is an excellent chip shop right outside the away turnstiles but the (friendly) stewards told us that the club weren’t allowing fans to take chips into the ground as from this year – the suggestion from the stewards was that the club should just buy the chip shop instead!
The game had a tinge of excitement and anticipation to it, with Rochdale expecting to wrap up promotion at Spotland. We were without the talisman Bayo Akinfenwa through injury (Was asked about four times before the game by Rochdale if he was playing, think they seemed a bit worried!) We started the better and had a couple of good half chances but midway through the first half we failed to clear a corner and Chris O’Grady rifled in a goal. Both sides had chances after that but neither could make them count and Rochdale won, and got their promotion, which was fully deserved as they were the best side I saw us play throughout the season. The stewards were fantastic throughout and we made some good atmosphere, as did they although surprisingly there wasn’t much of it flying between the two sets of supporters. Didn't eat inside the ground or use the toilets so couldn't comment.By Air - Manchester Airport is where you’ll want to head if you’re flying in to see The Dale play. The connections to the train network from there are excellent, too.
Circled the ground a few times out of boredom and time killing. Smallish ground but very homely, unlike some of the out of town places that pop up everywhere now. The away end along the side of the ground was quite nice. Seemed a bit eerie with about 200 of us in a 4,000 stand however! Prices were a bit excessive also. £12 for a junior to watch League 2 football was by far the most expensive in the division, luckily we bumped into someone who had some complimentary tickets for free so it wasn't a problem! The TDS stand, which was the seated stand to our left was bigger than I expected from seeing it on the TV and fullish, the most imposing stand in the ground and made the most noise. I thought for a terrace the Sandy Lane end was very quiet. Rochdale AFC is a traditional football club playing in English League 1 at a 10,000 seater stadium that provides an friendly, safe and intimate football experience. A new feature for this year is Desmond's Den providing fun for young and older kids prior to and after the game.
After we parked we walked back to the Cemetery Hotel. A great pub with good real ales. Sandwiches and pies were also available and it was showing Sky Sports. The ale and sandwich went down well. The pub actively encourages away fans and gives a discount on beer on the production of your season ticket. The home and away fans inside the pub mixed without any problems.This being my first visit to Spotland, I was surprised how different it was to how it looked television. It was peculiar that the gave what was, in my opinion, the best stand in the ground. It was by far the largest and was the one free of supporting pillars. The terrace spoiled the look of the ground somewhat, being significantly smaller than the other stands. Overall it was quite a nice ground, reminding of Roots Hall, although slightly less rundown!

I was quite surprised and happy to find ourselves seated not at one end of the ground (I detest the rubbish views from behind goals) but right on the halfway line. With an excellent viewpoint that rivaled the one we chose to have for home games. Rather weird to see the areas behind the goals on both ends populated by home fans. The pitch however wasn't pretty - mostly I guess as they play rugby league on it as well. it looked bare and bumpy all over the place.
