Rotherham United and Rotherham United Community Sports Trust are dedicating Saturday's Sky Bet Championship fixture with Queens Park Rangers at AESSEAL New York Stadium to Level Playing Field’s Unite for Access campaign.

The Millers will wear t-shirts dedicated to the campaign during the pre-match warm-up prior to the game against the R's, whilst the matchday programme and big screen will also proudly display information about the Unite for Access campaign.


Here at Rotherham United, we are always striving to ensure that our AESSEAL New York Stadium home is a place where everyone is able to enjoy their football and championing the fantastic work carried out by LPF further enhances this particular message.  

The campaign is running from Saturday 25th February to Sunday 12th March with the aim of showcasing the drive to improve accessibility and inclusion right across sport.  

We value all of our supporters here and that is the case with each and every member of our Rotherham United Disabled Supporters Association, who have worked tirelessly alongside our Community Sports Trust in order to improve the matchday experience for supporters right across the board.  


We’re incredibly proud of the facilities available here at AESSEAL New York Stadium and were delighted to be able to showcase them to regular and potential new supporters during our recent Disabled Supporters Open Day, which took place on Thursday 2nd March.  

Our stadium – celebrating it’s 10-year anniversary this season – boast some of the most modern facilities available to disabled supporters alongside 360 seats for fans and their carers across a number of excellent vantage points around the ground.  

Following feedback from RUDSA and funding from RUCST, we are delighted to have been able to implement our new adult changing facility, which is situated in the Eric Twigg Foods Pukka Pie West Stand, offering an appropriate and dignified space so that people can receive the privacy that they deserve.

Rotherham United’s Head of Supporter Services John Bird expressed his excitement at the newly-launched initiative whilst reaffirming the club’s historical and ongoing commitment to the work carried out by Level Playing Field. 

“The Unite for Access is another step in the right direction when it comes to accessibility and inclusion in the football world,” he told 

“We will once again be committing to backing the fantastic work which is produced as a result of the new aims targeted as part of this brilliant campaign. 

“Anyone that follows the club will be well-aware that we work closely year-round with Level Playing Field and with their help, have produced an environment at AESSEAL New York Stadium which we are incredibly proud of when it comes to the facilities we are able to offer to our supporters. 

“With that said, we are always looking to the future and want to keep improving on what is an already very inclusive environment. Together, with the help of the Rotherham United Disabled Supporters’ Association – who offer us vital feedback on the areas which can be improved – and our Community Sports Trust we will endeavour to continue to ensure that our football club is as accessible to everyone as it possibly can be.”
