Rotherham United have once again teamed up with our partners at Wilfreda Beehive and Parkgate Shopping to provide supporters with a unique opportunity to meet members of the first team and find out how the Millers live life on the road.
A selection of the club’s summer signings will take part in the visit which is set to take place on Thursday 16th September 2021 – and has drawn a good crowd of supporters at Parkgate in previous years – who will be seated on the club’s first team Wilfreda Beehive coach to meet fans and sign autographs.
Fans will be given the opportunity to step aboard the first team bus and take a look around as they make their way through meeting the players in attendance.
Four summer recruits from Paul Warne’s first team squad will be on-hand on the bus which will be stationed outside Matalan at Parkgate Shopping from 3:30pm on Thursday, with everyone welcome to attend.
We anticipate the visit lasting for around an hour, so there will be time for younger supporters who may be at school during the day to come down and top up their autograph books on Thursday.
Rotherham United’s Commercial Director Steve Coakley said:
“This is a visit which has gone down really well with supporters in previous years and it is nice that the world is opening up a little bit meaning that we can once again offer fans the opportunity to come down, meet the players and see how our first team travel to matches.
“We always try to be innovative in what we do at Rotherham United and I think it is nice for supporters to come down and take a look around the first team bus provided to us by our colleagues at Wilfreda Beehive, just to get an idea of how we travel – something that they otherwise wouldn’t get to experience.
“I would once again like to thank Paul Warne for making his players available for this visit and of course, our partners at Parkgate Shopping and Wilfreda Beehive who are always so helpful in facilitating opportunities like this one.”
