Rotherham United supporters wishing to take in the club’s ‘Ambitious…but brilliant’ pop-up museum will have their last chance to do so this weekend, with the exhibition set to close after our home game against Watford on Saturday 3rd September.
The Millers have been welcoming supporters to check out some of the club’s most notable achievements in a museum-style setup with trophies on display including the EFL’s largest, in the form of the Papa Johns Trophy, which Paul Warne’s men got their hands on last season.
The exhibition extensively covers the Millers’ proud and colourful history and includes information on the women’s team and famous figures of the past, including the first Black professional footballer, Arthur Wharton.
It has been created by trainee creative producers at Rotherham United Community Sports Trust (RUCST and designed to honour the team over the years, with supporters from across the globe stopping by to check it out during the Women’s EURO 2022 competition which staged matches at AESSEAL New York Stadium over the summer months.
The museum has been met with an incredibly positive reaction from both Millers fans and those visiting from further afield and we would encourage anyone wishing to come down and see what it is all about to do so before it closes its doors at the beginning of September.
Head of Community, Jamie Noble, who was involved in the conception of the exhibition ahead of the summer has been incredibly pleased with how it has been brought to life by his staff and volunteers.
“We knew that with the Women’s EUROs coming to town, we had a great opportunity to tell the world about Rotherham United and we thought that a pop-up museum on-site was the best way to do that,” he explained.
“The footfall that we have had has been unbelievable and it has been great to see supporters young and old checking out the various exhibits which have been expertly put together by a group of promising individuals on the club’s behalf.
“In my opinion, it is definitely worth coming to take a look at, with trophies and various other bits and pieces of memorabilia on show and we would love to see plenty more people down before we close our doors this weekend.”
