Making the journey to Yorkshire on Saturday? Here's what to expect from an away day at Rotherham United
Rotherham's home is one of the newer EFL venues having opened in 2012 making for good, modern facilities. The travelling Addicks will be housed in the Mears South Stand behind the goal which offers a good view of the action, although the angle of the stand is fairly steep.
WHERE TO EAT
On the concourse, the food and drink available includes; a range of Pukka Pies (Chicken Balti, Meat & Potato, Steak & Kidney, Cheese & Onion, all £3.40), Sausage Rolls (£2.90), Hot Dogs (£4) and Cheeseburgers (£4). These are available from two refreshment kiosks on the concourse.
Unlike most newer grounds, the New York Stadium is situated near to the town centre, meaning there are plenty of options in terms of where to eat.
WHERE TO DRINK
The main pub for away fans is the Bridge Inn, which is located quite close to Rotherham Railway Station (turn right out of the station and the pub is across the road on the left). Although basic inside, it does the job and normally has real ale on tap.
There are also a number of pubs in the nearby town centre, which are only a few minutes walk from the stadium. These include two Wetherspoon pubs; the Bluecoat on the Crofts and the Rhinoceros on Bridgegate. The Bluecoat does have more of a home feel about it, whilst closer to the railway station is the Rhinoceros.
WHERE TO PARK
Car parking at the stadium is for permit holders only. There is an open air car park on matchdays on the corner of Main Street with the A630 dual carriageway that you will pass if you follow the directions above that costs £2. Also there are a number of pay & display car parks located around the town centre. Otherwise, there is some street parking available around the area of the old Millmoor ground, which is around a 15 minute walk away from the visitors turnstiles. There is a multi-storey car park located next to the Interchange Bus Station which costs £2.80 for four hours, or other council Pay and Display car parks in the area costing around £2 for four hours.

Rotherham Central is just a 5 minute walk from the New York Stadium, which is very conveniently located for away fans. When you exit the station, turn right on to Central Road. Continue on this road, by the river edge, all the way past the Magistrates Court until you reach the Main Street T-Junction. Take a left on to Main Street, then an immediate right on to Don Street. Follow this road around and you will see the stadium on your right.
Rotherham's matchday programme is titled 'The New York Way' and is available around the ground for £3.
364 Addicks have snapped up tickets for the trip to Yorkshire, with tickets available from the ground on the day from the away ticket office from 1.30pm at the following prices: £25 adults, U22 and O60: £15, U18: £10, U12: £8.
