New York to get Royal stamp of approval

11 March 2013

Rotherham United are delighted to welcome HRH the Duke of Kent to the official opening of the New York community stadium and the unveiling of a memorial plaque.

To honour the Royal visit there will be a host of community activities on the pitch and in the hospitality lounges, whilst the Duke of Kent will also receive a tour of the stadium and be introduced to a host of local dignitaries and sponsors, including World Cup final referee and Millers Honorary Ambassador, Howard Webb.

“Receiving a visit from the Duke of Kent is a tremendous honour and one which everyone at Rotherham United is very excited about,” said Chairman Tony Stewart.

“The unveiling of the specially made plaque will provide the finishing touch to the New York Stadium, and it will be a proud day for the directors, myself and everyone associated with Rotherham United FC.

“A royal visit to this town is a special event; therefore this is an historic day not just for the football club, but also for the borough of Rotherham. New York is a community stadium, and to showcase the work we perform within the local community, we have invited local schools and community groups who will be taking part in activities during the day.”

The visit will take place the morning before the Millers travel for their League Two encounter at Wycombe Wanderers tomorrow.
