Preview | Liverpool U21s (H)

31 August 2021

Rochdale vs Liverpool U21s | Papa John's Trophy Group D, Tuesday 31st August, Crown Oil Arena, 7pm Kick-Off

We get our 2021/22 Papa John's Trophy campaign underway against Liverpool Under-21s at the Crown Oil Arena this afternoon.

It is the first of three group games for both sides, with Bolton Wanderers and Port Vale also making up Group D.


Supporters can purchase tickets for Tuesday night'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 6pm.


Following Friday night's game against Colchester United, Robbie Stockdale said:

"Any game of football I want to do well in. It’s nice to see that the bench looked a little bit stronger [on Friday], so we’ve got players coming back. We’ll look to give players game time but it doesn’t matter who’s playing, they’re here because I think they’re good players, so it’s a good opportunity for them."


In the group stage of the competition, should the 90 minutes end in a draw, then a penalty shootout will decide who gains a bonus point.
