It's the return of Saturday League Football at Rodney Parade. It's been a while since we trod the familiar steps of a three o'clock kick off on a Saturday afternoon (23rd December in fact) but it's back this Saturday and we take a look at "What's On" around the stadium.
We Fight Any Claim Marquee - Hosted by Newport City Radio
The Marquee will open from midday. From 1pm the marquee will be hosted by the fantastic Newport City Radio team. With team news, live music, player interviews and more, this is the place for County fans to enjoy a drink and a chat ahead of the game.
The Family Zone
The Family Zone makes a welcome return this Saturday. Located in the marquee, we have arts, games, and sweet snacks available.
You can also enjoy the music provided by Newport City Radio.
The Club Shop will be open from 10am until kick off for you to pick up all your merchandise, shirts or programmes! We will also be open for 30 minutes after the full-time whistle.
The Programme Shop
Not only is this the best place to purchase your matchday programme, The Programme Shop also boasts matchday programmes dating back over 40 years!
Located between the old Snelling Bar and the Club Shop, the Programme Shop is a little treasure trove of Matchday Programmes and Club badges from over 200 Clubs. Thet also stock books, magazines and a whole host of interesting football-related items for you to browse and buy. All this tucked away in a nook of Rodney Parade!
The Programme Shop will open at 5pm and close at kick off but will re-open for an hour after the match.
Half Time Draw
The new and improved Half Time Draw is still going strong. Last week’s winner walked away with half the money raised whilst the three runners up took home fantastic prizes such as money off at the Club Shop and two free cinema tickets.
You can find out exactly what prizes are available and how you can be a winner without actually winning by clicking on the link below.
Bucket Collection - Prostate Cancer UK
We are holding a bucket collection for Prostate Cancer UK today.
Volunteers will be collecting money outside the ground this afternoon and with your generosity will be raising money to beat a disease killing 1 man every 45 minutes in the UK.
First Time at Rodney Parade?
Rodney Parade is located right in the heart of the City meaning there's always plenty to do before and after a game. We aim to create a fantastic atmosphere throughout the whole ground to allow you to really enjoy your time in Newport.
