Rochdale AFC v Oxford United.

Sky Bet League One match.

Bring the kids along early to Dale’s League One fixture against Oxford United so they can attend our free Christmas Workshop!

Children can make their own Christmas cards and gliders and reindeer dust, and will receive sweets!

Visit the Carlsberg Lounge from inside the Pearl Street Stand before kick-off from 2pm onwards. You can access the event by going through the turnstiles. 

If you want to take part in the activities but your youngster has a season ticket elsewhere in the ground, then simply visit the RAFC Ticket Office in the run up to kick-off with your child’s season ticket, and your season ticket if you have one, and you will receive a junior matchday club pass.

Crown Oil Arena
Three stands are allocated to home supporters – The Main Stand (seated), Pearl Street (seated) and Sandy Lane (standing). Away supporters are allocated the Willbutts Lane Stand (seated).

Family Area
Got a youngster? Why not join us in the family area, which is located in the Pearl Street Stand.

You'll find the family area in the last two blocks of the stand, closest to the Main Stand. You'll be able to identify the area by looking out for the blue 'Enjoy the Match' signage which is visible around the area.

Dale's mascot is a friendly dragon named Desmond. You'll find him in and around the family area on a matchday. Make sure you say hello!

The Ratcliffe Bars and The Carlsberg Lounge are situated at the ground.

The Ratcliffe Bars is open to both home and away supporters from 12noon on a Saturday matchday and from 5pm on a midweek matchday.

The Carlsberg Lounge is open to home supporters from the Pearl Street Stand and is accessible only from inside the ground. Turnstiles open an hour before kick-off.

Both are licensed premises, showing Sky Sports.
