Rotherham United have sold out the AESSEAL New York Stadium lounge for the forthcoming Sky Bet Championship showdown with Newcastle United.
The Millers take on the Toon Army in a league fixture for the first time since 1983, and businesses and supporters alike have responded by snapping up tickets for hospitality and sponsorship packages in double-quick time.
It is another step forward for the commercial wing of the club, with Head of Commercial Mark Hitchens confirming that a number of other key fixtures are also close to selling out.
“There has been so much interest in the sponsorship and hospitality this season, and we expected the games against the likes of Newcastle would be popular,” Hitchens told www.themillers.co.uk
“I think we are a little surprised just how many people wanted to be involved in this game, resulting in rapid sales.
“It isn’t just the Newcastle game that has proven popular, a number of other fixtures are getting close to selling out too, as we look forward to another successful season on the commercial side of the club.
“Every year seems to get more exciting, and while we continue to strive for improvement on the field, the same can be said behind the scenes commercially.
“The feedback from the Wolves game from the guests in the Lounge has been positive, I have lost count at the amount of people who have come to me personally to say they will be coming again, which is great to here.”
The match against Newcastle takes place on Saturday 1st October, kick off 3pm.
