Altrincham will be breaking new ground when they head for Spotland, now known as the Crown Oil Arena, to take on Rochdale in a league fixture for the first time ever on Tuesday November 21st.
It is one of two eagerly-awaited Vanarama National League derbies for the Robins, and, after deservedly securing a point at Oldham Athletic on Saturday, there is a growing sense of anticipation about taking on the Dale in three weeks' time.
The clubs have met twice before in the FA Cup - Alty winning 3-1 at Spotland in the second round in 1965-66 and 2-1 at Moss Lane in the first round in 1982-83 - but this is the first time they have contested league points.
It goes without saying Phil Parkinson and his players will be hoping Alty fans will be out in force as usual, and Rochdale have kindly provided details of how away fans can book their tickets for this 7.45pm kick-off.
They advise that tickets for the Willbutts Lane away end can be purchased through the link below, with a PDF e-ticket being sent to their email. This can either be printed off, the recommended option, to be used at the club's automated turnstiles or scanned directly from phones, with screen brightness needing to be at maximum.
Wheelchair users and carers will need to contact the ticket office on 01706 644648, selecting option 1.
The above link is live now and will remain so until 8pm on the day of the game.
Pay on the day is available at the same price as booking in advance. The club have a cash sales portacabin opposite their five-a-side pitch, and it will be open from 6pm.
For card payments, fans will be required to purchase from the ticket office at the ground, though it should be noted that this is a very busy window. The ticket office will be open from 9am on the day of the game.
Prices are as follows:
65-plus (Senior) £19.00
21 and Under - £14.00
13 and Under - £7.00 (must be accompanied by a responsible adult)
2 Years and Under still require a ticket, but this is free with a paying adult. Please contact the ticket office on the below number.
Wheelchairs – age band prices and the carer free – contact the ticket office on O1706 644648, selecting option 1.
