Preview | Newport County AFC (H)

17 December 2021

Rochdale vs Newport County | Sky Bet League Two, Saturday 18th December 2021, Crown Oil Arena, 3pm Kick-Off

Dale return to the Crown Oil Arena on Saturday, welcoming Newport County in Sky Bet League Two action.

The Exiles are unbeaten in their last four league games and sit fourth in the table, following an impressive start to the season.


Supporters can purchase tickets for Saturday's game right up until kick-off via our online ticketing website.

Simply buy online and scan the ticket, which will be emailed to you, at the turnstiles upon arrival! You can either scan the email direct from your phone, or print off your ticket at home to scan on the night.

There are no cash turnstiles at the Crown Oil Arena, due to the ground now having automatic turnstiles.

In circumstances where you can only purchase from the Ticket Office, please do not leave this until the last minute. Our new ticketing system requires the details of all purchasers to be stored on our system, so it will take time to process your details and issue your match ticket. Therefore, to avoid delaying your entry to the ground further, please allow plenty of time to visit the Ticket Office.

Turnstiles open an hour before kick-off at 2pm.
