Doncaster Rovers statement following season curtailment

9 June 2020

Doncaster Rovers fully understand the decision made by EFL Sky Bet League One clubs to curtail the remaining fixtures of the League One season.

The health of all individuals associated with the football club - fans, players and staff alike - is of paramount importance.  We respect the decision made collectively by League One clubs and welcome the clarity that has now been provided following the vote.

Since the season was paused back in March, the board of directors have been working with senior staff to plan for every eventuality including this one.

In May, the club hosted a supporters’ board meeting with members of the Supporters Club, Viking Supporters Co-Operative and independent fans with the intent of ensuring we can provide suitable options for those who have purchased tickets but without risking the survival of the club during this crisis.

With clarity now provided following the EFL’s announcement, we will now start the process of communicating with all those affected by the news including Silver Members, match package holders and those who have purchased home or away match tickets to cancelled games.  Our objectives are to ensure all supporters feel valued and have suitable compensation options available to them and that we all have a club to support beyond the COVID-19 pandemic.

We will release details of those plans next week. In the meantime everyone at the club would like to thank supporters for your patience and support in these unprecedented times.
