New stadium effect

Rotherham's last few years before the new stadium was a dark time in the club's history. They were locked out of Millmoor in 2008, having to play 4 seasons at Don Valley Stadium in Sheffield. Attendances in those last 4 years suffered as fans understandably didn't enjoy playing in a converted athletics stadium in a different city.

The return to Rotherham with the opening of the New York Stadium was welcomed by all fans and attendances rose an impressive 86% from 4,977 to 9,273.

The team responded on the field and Rotherham improved the average league position from 64th to 47th - a rise of some 17 places which also saw the Millers spend 4 of their first 10 seasons in the Championship.
