Club Invest In Dome Pitch Cover

18 February 2020

Rochdale Football Club has invested in a dome cover ahead of this weekend’s Sky Bet League One match against Coventry City.

The dome was previously in place ahead of our Emirates FA Cup third round tie with Newcastle United, as well as a short period in March 2019 (pictured above).

This decision to invest in the cover has been taken due to adverse weather conditions affecting the Crown Oil Arena surface, which saw last Saturday’s match against Tranmere Rovers postponed.

Having looked at the weather forecast, with heavy rain scheduled throughout the rest of the week, the Club has acted swiftly to ensure that Saturday’s match against Coventry goes ahead.

The cover is arriving on Tuesday (18th February) and will be fully erected on Wednesday morning.
