Rovers to Welcome Boro

8 June 2015

Doncaster set for Middlesbrough match up in pre season friendly.

Doncaster Rovers will play host to Championship side Middlesbrough in a mouth-watering pre-season fixture at Keepmoat Stadium on Saturday 25th July 2015 (3pm).

The game against Aitor Karanka’s play-off final runners up will provide not only a stern test for Paul Dickov’s League 1 hopefuls but an apt fixture for Rovers legend and lifelong Boro fan, James Coppinger.

Next season will be Coppinger’s 12th in the red and white of Doncaster as he nears the Rovers all time appearance record (468 matches) and the game against his boyhood club is a fitting tribute to the 34 year old from Guisborough.

The acquisition of the game against the Riverside Stadium outfit completes a quartet of home pre season friendlies with Nottingham Forest, Middlesbrough, Sunderland and Wolves all coming to town.

Tickets for all four friendlies will go on general sale on Monday 15th June with Season Ticket holders having two weeks to secure their seat for each fixture.

All games will be UNRESERVED seating in the South Stand.

Ticket prices for all 4 pre-season friendlies are as follows:
£10 - Adults
£5 - Concessions

Paul Dickov’s side will hope to get off to the best possible start when the League 1 campaign kicks off on August 8th.

Supporters will be aware of the fixtures for the 15/16 season when the Football League release them on 17th June.
