Rotherham Vital’s last poll was:

Do you buy a match day programme?

An amazing (to me)43% of the voters said, yes they always buy one.

This got me wondering just how much revenue is made from the Matchday programme. I got one at the game against Grimsby and for £2.50 I have to say it wasn’t a bad read. There was a piece from the Chairman and the manager and one of the directors, pages about the visiting team, a stat page, a section from the London Millers, Match reports, Captain’s article, Supporters club, action photos, away travel, a piece about an ex miller, a profile of a youth team member, a piece about a far away supporter plus the League tables etc.

I have to admit that I don’t buy one every game – I used to but the cupboards are bulging and the prospect of moving home to house my programme collection was just a bit OTT! I usually buy one at the start of the season or if it’s a special edition.

Here is the results:

Yes – always (43%)
No – never (21%)
Sometimes (21%)
If it’s a special one (12%)
At the start of the season only (3%)


Another poll is up on the front page now and it’s to do with the Reserve team – please vote!
