Come and join us in Desmond's Den!

Desmond’s Den - the home of our friendly mascot - is situated inside the Smith Metals Family Stand's Carlsberg Lounge and will be open before every Dale home game, with our Junior Events being held in there.

As well as the Junior Events, there are games for youngsters to play, as well PlayStation 4s with the latest FIFA on them!

The creation of the Den is part of plans to continue improving the matchday experience at the Crown Oil Arena. This wouldn’t have been possible without funding from the Premier League Fans Fund, which was applied for and obtained by our very own Dale In The Community Trust. 

Desmond’s Den is open from 2pm for a Saturday match, and also an hour befor kick-off for a weekday match.

In order to enter the Carlsberg Lounge/ Desmond's Den, supporters must go through the Smith Metals Famly Stand turnstiles. Please note that you cannot enter the bar/Desmond's Den from the car park.

Unfortunately at this moment in time, due to Covid restrictions, supporters in other stands cannot attend actitivies in Desmond's Den - this is to avoid the cross over of stands. We will update supporters should this protocol change in the season.
