Matchday Guide | Aldershot Town (H)

17 November 2023

Dale welcome Aldershot Town to the Crown Oil Arena in the first of back-to-back home games.

Below is our Matchday Guide, providing supporters – both home and away – with a comprehensive preview of everything to expect ahead of your visit.


Saturday’s match against Aldershot Town at the Crown Oil Arena will be our official game of Remembrance.

Our Club Chaplain, Richard Bradley, will read poem ‘For The Fallen’, which will be followed by the playing of ‘The Last Post’ and a minute’s silence.

Supporters are advised to be in the stadium early, as we expect commemorations to begin at around 2.45pm.

Bar coded entry continues to be in operation at the Crown Oil Arena, so tickets must be purchased before going to the turnstiles.

Supporters can also buy using cash or card right up until kick-off. For tickets in the David Kilpatrick Main Stand, visit the Ticket Office. For tickets in the Smith Metals Family Stand or Sandy Lane, buy from the Club Shop. Away fans can purchase from the Ticket Collection Cabin.
