Join us in Desmond’s Den before every home match!

Desmond’s Den is the home of our friendly mascot, Desmond the Dragon, and is situated inside Our Spot Community Hub, which is located inside the Smith Metals Family Stand.

We hold a Junior Event inside the Den before every Dale home game, with an hour of fun activities to keep you busy before kick-off!

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

Desmond’s Den is open from one hour before kick-off (for example, 2pm for a Saturday 3pm kick-off).

To enter Our Spot/Desmond's Den, supporters must go through the Smith Metals Family Stand turnstiles. Please note that you cannot enter the Hub/Desmond's Den from the car park.

Following the relaxation of some Covid rules, supporters in the Main Stand and Sandy Lane can now attend activities in Desmond's Den! To do so, you need to visit the Ticket Office with your Season Card/match ticket and request a matchday club pass, which will grant you access between the stands.

We would like to thank our very own Rochdale AFC Community Trust and the Premier League Fans Fund, who provided the funding for the Den.

Enjoy!
