WHERE TO PARK
There is parking for 1,000 at the ground or some firms offer parking on the industrial estate round the ground. This might help with getting away from the ground which can take a long time!
A new home to the Rovers since the 06/07 season, the £32 million, and community stadium has replaced the old Belle View. The Keepmoat is next to the athletics track, a lake and fields on one side, and a shopping mall on the other. The ground is a uniform bowl, spectators’ views uninterrupted by any posts, with the whole dominated by the red of the seats. The executive boxes, along with the restaurant, are in the East Stand; the dressing rooms and the dugouts are in the West Stand.
WHERE THE VALIANTS WILL BE SEATED:
Up to 3,344 travelling fans can be accommodated in the Case Construction North Stand, all seats providing excellent views. The food bars and toilet facilities are a dramatic change to what had to be tolerated at Belle View. Entrance is ticket only with tickets available from the South Stand Ticket office
There are a few eating places in the Lakeside Out let Shopping Village behind the ground, including McDonalds, KFC, Pizza Hut and a Beefeaters pub. There are not many fish and chip shops within a short walking distance of the ground, however, The Chequer Fisheries, is about half a mile directly to the west, reached by passing down St Cecilias Road and Rutford Road.
Like chippies there are not many pubs around the ground, but they do sell alcohol in the sports bars within the ground. On the other side of the lake is a bowling alley if you fancy a drink in different surroundings, although close by is a Beefeaters pub.
