Message from the chairman

As we look forward to the 2022/23 season, the board of directors and I are pleased to officially launch our season cards.

Following an unprecedented year of activity off-the-field for the club following the events of the EGM on 1st June 2021, the future sustainability and successes of our club in our town are a now a collective responsibility.

Whilst the 2021/22 season will go down in the history of the club for many non-football reasons, we end this season as a fan owned club with over 500 different fan shareholders, including both the Rochdale AFC Community Trust and Dale Supporters Trust, who are our largest recognised shareholder.

I promised from my first day as chairman that we would be a club focussed on our supporters and we are very proud to be a sustainably run club set at the heart of the local community.

Our motivation next season is to continue serve that community as best as we can as an EFL member club. The official launch of 2022/23 season cards is the next step in that journey.

Our record season card holder level was 2018/19 when the club sold 2,714. In the last 20 years, the club has only sold over 2,500 season cards on three occasions, in 2017/18, 2018/19 and 2019/20. My call to all supporters is to surpass the 2,500 number again for 2022/23.

The board of directors have taken the decision to freeze all season card prices at the current season’s level. As a fan owned club, we truly understand individual financial pressures that all our supporters face and we want as many fans to attend as many games as possible next season to create the best possible matchday atmosphere.

We are freezing prices for supporters against the backdrop of rising costs but with greater emphasis on our commercial activity revenues achieving the levels of EFL benchmark standards.

This is Your Town, Your Team, Your Club.
