With coronavirus restrictions having been lifted on 19th July, we are eagerly anticipating the return of supporters to the stands and hospitality lounges at AESSEAL New York Stadium.
John Breckin has been absent from the stage in our hospitality areas for far too long and with that in mind, we want to make sure he’s got a great crowd upon picking the mic back up.
In order to make sure that happens, our commercial team will be welcoming supporters back into hospitality at a special rate for your return with a package priced a £55 + VAT per person for our pre-season friendlies.
Included in the package is a three-course meal, a car parking space for the day at AESSEAL New York Stadium, a copy of our new 2021/22 matchday programme and a teamsheet.
In addition to all of the above, you’ll be treated to Breck’s dulcet tones ringing around the lounge and the brilliant Rotherham United anecdotes which are always a given as a result of his Millers royalty.
Since you were last with us, the club has signed a deal with Elior UK who have become our catering partners, meaning it will be a first opportunity to sample a new menu cooked by newly-employed chefs here at AESSEAL New York Stadium.
Whilst the restrictions across the country have been lifted, we are still keen to ensure that supporters can attend our hospitality lounges in a safe environment.
In order to achieve this, we have taken a number of precautionary measures that we believe will benefit both guests and our staff.
There will be a QR code to scan upon arrival at the stadium, whilst hand sanitizing stations will be placed around the lounges. Our staff will also be wearing face coverings for your protection and we will be advising hospitality guests to do the same whilst moving around away from their tables.
Where possible, we will increase ventilation around the stadium -including in the lounges - to ensure the continued flow of fresh air throughout.
We will also be providing the table service that we have all become so accustomed to over the course of the past 18 months, whilst the club are working with our partners at Elior to provide an app which supporters can use whilst visiting us in the hospitality areas.
Paul Warne’s side have two home friendlies during their pre-season campaign against Newcastle United on Tuesday 27th July 2021 and Middlesbrough on Friday 30th July 2021.
Rotherham United’s Head of Commercial Mark Hitchens expressed his excitement at welcoming supporters back into the lounges, adding that matchdays without a busy and vibrant hospitality area just hasn’t been the same.
“We all know that football isn’t the game that we love without supporters – whether that be in the stands or in the lounges,” he told www.themillers.co.uk.
“I have greatly missed the buzz of AESSEAL New York Stadium on a matchday and I am already looking forward to greeting fans old and new in reception as they make their way back into the lounges.
“I know that we have come to love John Breckin’s voice on the iFollow airwaves, but there’s no denying that he was made for the stage. I know he’ll be in fine form in the friendlies with plenty to catch up on as he once again takes up the microphone.
“We’re really excited to be offering hospitality for the friendlies at this rate and we are hopeful that we can get the lounges thriving again – as they were pre-covid – and get back to football and life as we knew it before the pandemic.”
