Doncaster Rovers today launched their kit design competition for the 2016/17 season.  Supporters are asked to create their shirt designs and submit them to the club  before the deadline of 5PM on 21st January 2016, so a pretty tight deadline.  

You can either email your designs to or drop them in at the Keepmoat Stadium.  Template files for supporters to use can be downloaded from HERE or if you prefer you can simply draw the design yourself.

The designs will be shortlisted prior to the Meet The Owners event on 5th February 2016, where details of the new kit provider and the 5 home and 5 away designs chosen to go to public vote will be revealed.

So, get your shirt-designing hats on and the best of luck!

As supporters may be aware, there was an incident during the last home match with Chesterfield which resulted in VSC Secretary Martin O'Hara being ejected from the stadium.

The trust is delighted to be able to inform supporters that the club have apologised to Martin for this action, having conducted an investigation and found that he did nothing to warrant this outcome.  Both the trust and Martin as an individual would like to thank the club for reaching the correct decision.

Furthermore, this incident has opened the way for a very productive debate with the club around stewarding standards and the important role stewards play in both supporter safety and customer service.  Many stewards in the stadium deliver their matchday role to a very high standard, and this is regularly recognised and commented upon by supporters, but what this incident has highlighted is that there is always room for improvement.  The Football Supporters Federation will be assisting the club to become a leader in positive matchday stewarding and help ensure supporters are treated both fairly and consistently through this approach.  

The trust recognises this as a very positive step for the benefit of all supporters attending matches at the Keepmoat Stadium.

Junior Rovers fans were treated to a fantastic Halloween ‘spook-tacular’ during, and after, Saturday’s game against Colchester United.

The young supporters – dressed up in full scary costumes – partook in a half time parade lead by the ghostly Donny Dog before a mass ‘Thriller’ dance on the Keepmoat Stadium turf.

Following the match – and Rovers’ 2-0 win over the U’s – the youngsters gathered in the Family Stand and were told scary ghost stories before meeting their heroes, the Doncaster Rovers first team squad, in the ‘revamped’ Belle Vue Bar.

Everyone then enjoyed an eerie walk around the pitch black Keepmoat Stadium before returning for a fun party disco including games and apple bobbing and pumpkin carving.

Marketing and Communications Manager Ryan Murrant said: “I can’t thank the efforts of all those involved enough. There was a terrific amount of planning that went in to making it such an enjoyable evening and the feedback from the young fans was fantastic.

“Credit must also go to Alan Roberts and the whole of the Viking Supporters Co-operative (VSC) for the hours they put in to making it as scary as possible for everyone to savour.

"I'd also like to thank the local businesses, football clubs, friends of the football club and the Club Doncaster Foundation for helping push the game.

“The players were there to celebrate the win as well which made the whole day really special.”

Belle Vue Bar has undergone a ‘makeover’ ahead of today's local derby against Barnsley.

With the news that Doncaster Rovers old ground Belle Vue was to be knocked down and rebuilt on, the VSC felt it was right to commemorate the ground at the Keepmoat Stadium.

Rovers fans from the Viking Chat forum have kindly donated money to cover the cost of the new wall displays in the bar.

VSC Director Rob Williams commented, "We wanted to make the Belle Vue Bar feel a bit more like home, which Belle Vue was for many Rovers fans for many years. The club gave us this great opportunity and VSC members and forums users have once again put their hands in their pockets and we think the walls look fantastic!".

VSC Secretary Martin O’Hara added, “With Belle Vue being built on, it’s important that we remember it. It’s a memorable place to so many Rovers fans and where better to remember it than the Belle Vue Bar.
“The bar was renamed by the supporters and now it’s being decorated by the supporters as well. There will be a plaque with everyone’s name on who has contributed.”

Situated in the West Stand, the Belle Vue Bar welcomes all supporters from home and away clubs with Sky Sports shown on the TV screens prior to kick off and after the match.

If you're going to the match today make sure to pop in and have a look. We are still accepting donations for this project; click here for details on how to donate.
