200 Years Of Loyalty Paid Back

21 March 2014

To celebrate the loyal fans of Doncaster Rovers, two lucky Golden Ticket winners have bought season tickets for the unbelievable price of £18.79.

Supporters Terrence Bath and Elliott Mounfield secured the knockdown price after being drawn from a list of Rovers fans who purchased a season ticket in February for the 2014/15 campaign.

Rovers, which were formed in 1879, developed the price offer as part of a package of prizes available to fans who buy a season ticket before the March 31 early bird deadline.

Elliott is a school student from Bury who is an avid supporter of Doncaster Rovers, having a passion for football his entire life. Elliott was overjoyed when he found out the news of the win.

Elliott’s Grandfather said: “He started coming to Rovers games with me when he was around three-years-old. He watches Manchester City games with his other Grandad but this season ticket will offer him more of a chance to see games at the Keepmoat stadium.”

Terrence Bath, who has supported Doncaster Rovers since the 1940s, said “It was fantastic when I heard that I had won. No other words for it. I feel really lucky considering I never even get three numbers on the lottery!

“I used to play a lot of football myself and so could only really go to evening games. Now I have a lot more free time and will be looking forward to seeing them play regularly.”

Shaun Lockwood, head of communications for Doncaster Rovers, said: “The fans are so important to the longevity and success of a club. This is a great way to reward loyal supporters by being able to give something extra back.”

Lots of prizes have been given to season ticket holders as a reward for continual support for the club ranging from tickets, training sessions, home and away shirts and visits from Doncaster Rovers players.

Fans have until March 31 to purchase a 2014/15 season ticket before the early bird discount deadline. Existing season ticket holders can save up to £35 in categories A and B, compared to new season ticket holders. 

Due to popular demand, there are a limited number of season tickets remaining at just £299 for adults and £219 for concessions in category C seating only. 

Rovers have also reduced child season tickets for all areas of the Keepmoat Stadium next season. Supporters aged 11 and under can secure a seat for just £30, while those aged 12 to 16 can have a season ticket for just £70, a reduction of up to 25 per cent. Under 8’s continue to go free within the family area if accompanied by a paying adult or senior.

With the new direct debit scheme, Doncaster Rovers have made it even easier to secure a seat for the new season with a £50 deposit prior to the early bird deadline (31 March) with a three or six month term available. A £20 admin fee applicable, terms and conditions apply. 

Rovers Alliance Members are entitled to a five per cent discount on their 2014/15 season ticket if they have been member for at least three months.
