Away Facilities: Away supporters are normally housed in the Rubicon Print Stand at the North end of the stadium, if demand requires it then additional seating can also be made available in the Midlands Co-operative Community (East) Stand.
Unlike most new stadiums the fans are housed pretty close to the pitch, ensuring good views of the playing action.
The closest pub to the ground is the Derby Tup, or a little further on is the Red Lion.
Last visit: This will be Rovers’ first visit to the Proact Stadium.
