Rotherham United fans will be eagerly waiting for tomorrow to know who their first game of the new season will be against and if it will be at Don Valley or away.

We have a lot of long away trips next season and maybe it would be good to start with one of those – while the weather is still good! Or would you fancy a game at Don Valley first?

Well, it won’t be long before we find out!

But, please can I ask Vital Postees NOT to put up the whole fixture list

As usual thanks to the short-sightedness of the Premier League, Football League, our FA and their legal eagles at Dataco, we can`t show them.

Correct, we can`t publish the fixtures – adverts for the games we pay good money to go and see – without paying a fee which none of us can afford to pay and wouldn`t even if we could.

We look to promote the game in every way we can including letting fans know when to attend games but this is seen as a chargeable to fans process. It also defies the European Court of Justice about publishing fixture charges but hey, we don`t have the financial backing to challenge that.

So… fixtures are available on the Official Site.

Thank you for your co-operation in this matter – one day, the powers who be might see sense eh….
