Matchday Guide: Rochdale (A)

11 March 2022

Bluebirds fans will make their first trip to Rochdale in over 50 years this weekend and we want to make sure that your visit to The Crown Oil Arena runs as smoothly as possible.

We look on course to take over 500 fans with us for the game so take a look at this detailed guide provided by Rochdale to ensure you have an enjoyable trip to Lancashire.

The Crown Oil Arena now operated a barcoded entry system and therefore there will be no cash turnstiles available at the ground.

Barrow fans can purchase their tickets in advance from The Dunes Hotel Stadium until 4pm on Friday – after that, tickets will be on sale on matchday from Dale’s Ticket Office (card payment only) and Ticket Cabin (cash payment).

Visiting supporters are housed in the Reside Estate Agency Stand (Willbutts Lane) which is a covered stand that offers the best view of the action at The Crown Oil Arena. Turnstiles open one hour before kick-off.
