Rotherham moved to the AESSEAL New York Stadium in 2012 and it is situated near their old ground Millmoor, which was originally their home from 1925 to 2008. They then moved to the Don Valley Stadium in Sheffield, before moving back to Rotherham in their new £20-million stadium. It seats just over 12,000 people and the Iron fans will be located in the Mears Stand at the south end of the stadium, which can hold 2,500 visitors.

The area it is positioned in is known as New York Island, hence the stadium name, and it is adjacent to the River Don. It is also built on the site of the old Guest & Chrimes factory.

It is a fully enclosed one-tiered stadium, with the largest stand being the Eric Twigg Pukka Pies Stand (West) Stand, holding over 4,000 people. It features the dugout and an executive 1925 Lounge.

In November 2014, the naming rights for the stadium were bought by local company AESSEAL, worth a six-figure fee annually for the club.

England Under-18s also played there for the first time in 2014 in front of 9,000 fans.

By car: Follow signs for Doncaster and merge onto the M180. Then after 12 miles take the first exit at the roundabout towards Doncaster on the M18.

When you reach the M1 junction, take it northbound towards Sheffield and then at junction 33, take the A630 exit to Sheffield (Centre)/Rotherham.

It is then the third exit at the roundabout onto the A630. Travel half a mile and then at the next roundabout, take the first exit onto W Bawtry Rd/A630/A631 and follow signs for Rotherham.

At the next two roundabouts, take the second exit both times staying on Centenary Way/A630.

You will then see the stadium on your right-hand side.

By train: There is a direct train from Scunthorpe to Rotherham Central railway station and takes roughly one hour and ten minutes. The train station is located a five minute walk from the New York Stadium and is directly behind it.

Car parking at the stadium is for permit holders only. There are, however, a number of pay and display car parks around the town centre, plus street parking around the area of the Millmoor Ground, which is around a 15-minute walk away from the visitors turnstiles. There is also a multi storey car park located next to the Interchange Bus Station which costs £2.80 for four hours.

There are many pubs, including Old Mill Brewery, Bluecoat and Rhinoceros, located near the stadium in the town centre, which all welcome away fans.
