Unreserved Seating in Black Bank

Unreserved Seating

The Black Bank is fully unreserved, if you have a usual spot you like to stand in we STRONGLY recommend coming in early. The club assure us the gates will open at 1:30pm promptly.

Black Bank DRFC

Also, the Black Bank is fully behind standing at football but we can’t support people standing in the gangways. This is for two reasons. Many families and children also stand in the Black Bank and therefore the gangways are needed to remain free in case of an emergency. Secondly, in the event of Keegan scoring, 500 people need unobstructed access to the pitch. Thanks for your cooperation.

 

BLACK BANK IS NOW FULL!

YOU’RE NOT GETTING IN, SON: Black Bank is now officially FULL for the Stoke game. Quick reminder for those that haven’t been in the Black Bank before

Max and Paddy Rovers

* As the players come out of the tunnel hold the TIFO card above your head. It’s honestly that simple. Don’t swap them about / rip them up / make them into a paper airplane!

* Feel free to take a flag and wave it pre match. At full time please return it to where you found it. They’re not freebies from the club, they were paid for by the fans so don’t be a cock and try to nick one.

* You shouldn’t expect to sit down from around the middle of the stand upwards. If someone is stood in that area in front of you then either also stand or move to a seat elsewhere. It’s genuinely not rocket science.

* Sing. Don’t just turn up and enjoy the atmosphere, join in. If, after 90 minutes you can still speak you’re doing it wrong.
Flags.

* Most importantly: Enjoy yourself. The buzz is back at Rovers, we’re storming up the league, the fans are about as united as is possible and the atmosphere is leaps and bounds better than its been in years.

BLACK BANK TIFO

BLACK BANK TIFO

On Saturday we’re going to try something a little different. As no doubt you’ve seen the Black Bank have brought flags, streamers, banners and colour to the Keepmoat so far this season. On Saturday we’re bringing a TIFO.

DRFC TIFO display

TIFO is the Italian word for supporting a football team, is mostly used as a name for any display by football fans in the stands.

To help us get the most out of this opportunity please read the following:

* Attached to every seat in the middle four blocks of the South Stand is a piece of A3 card.

* These cards have been carefully placed to spell out DRFC across the length of the stand, if the person in the seat next to you has a different coloured card please don’t swap them!

* As the players emerge from the tunnel please stand with the card held above your head.

* At the front of the stand there are volunteers who’ll help to direct things.

* Just before Kick Off please put the card back as best you can, we want to re-use them if possible!

These displays are paid for by you, the supporters, so we’d just like to say a massive thank you to you all. Together we’ve made a huge difference to the atmosphere. This is just the beginning!
COYR!

This era certainly contains some huge characters from the Rovers colourful past, including Charlie Williams, Peter Doherty, Harry Gregg and Alick Jeffrey so we’re sure the vote will be hard fought!

 

Lee Croft, Committee member of the DRSG, who have played a vital role in the Black Bank movement, has written an article taking a closer look at the 10 legends below. You can read that over on the DRSG website.
