Titans secure Abbeydale for massive semi final against Bristol
Rotherham Titans are delighted to announce the second leg of their massive Championship semi final clash against Bristol Rugby on Saturday 17 May, will take place at the Abbeydale Sports Ground in Sheffield.
Titans are very grateful to Abbeydale Sports Club, Sheffield RUFC and Sheffield Collegiate Cricket Club, who have moved ‘heaven and earth’ to accommodate the fixture.
All parties were previously committed to a semi final home leg on 10 May. However, Bristol’s surprise decision to play the first leg of the semi final at home, forced a major re-think and a request from the Titans to play the game on the 17 May.
Sheffield Collegiate has re-arranged their first eleven fixture against Cleethorpes, which was scheduled for the same day at Abbeydale.
In addition, Collegiate sought agreement with Yorkshire County Cricket Club for us to play the fixture, as Yorkshire are at Abbeydale on Monday 19 May to play a 20-20 match.
Sheffield Collegiate Cricket Club, the Yorkshire Cricket League and Yorkshire County Cricket Club have all been enormously helpful and supportive in allowing the Titans match against Bristol Rugby to go ahead.
As the occasion is a tremendous advert for Rotherham and the Rugby Club’s most important fixture for over a decade, it is with real regret and sadness that the same commitment was not demonstrated by Rotherham Town Cricket Club at any stage.
Demand for tickets at Abbeydale is predicted to be high and supporters are urged to book theirs now in order to avoid disappointment.

Tickets will also be available from the Rugby Club Office at Clifton Lane and from the South Yorkshire Renewable Energy (SYRE) office at 104 Blair Athol Road, Sheffield, S11 7GD.
We will announce as soon as possible when tickets can be purchased and collected in person.
The great news for season ticket holders is they will gain free entry for the game! Season ticket holders can use their free semi final voucher in the rear of their season ticket book.
