What's inside 'The Stag' this week?

16 September 2021

Here's what's included in the Rochdale edition of our award-winning, limited edition programme, The Stag, available for just £2.50.

The programme is available to purchase now online by clicking here. It will also be available for £2.50 at every kiosk around One Call Stadium on matchday, as well as the club's ticket office and Sandy's Bar & Kitchen.

Inside, you'll hear from chairman John Radford and manager Nigel Clough, ahead of the weekend's clash between the Stags and the Dale.

You'll be brought up to speed with the latest news from the club, including sections on our Academy and Ladies' teams.

Right-back Kellan Gordon will go through his loves and pet hates, with a pull-out poster of the Stags' No.2 also available inside.

Former Stag Keith Cassells tells tales from his time with the club in The Golden Archive: 'His-Story,' and we also take a look at the stats for Saturday's visitors, Rochdale.

There is also a kids' quiz included inside to keep the young ones entertained at half-time!

The programme is available to purchase online now via this link. The Stag will be sold on matchday at One Call Stadium via every kiosk around the ground, Sandy's Bar & Kitchen and the club's main ticket office.

Supporters are also still able to purchase previous editions of The Stag, pre-order future editions or sign up to full-season subscriptions. To do so, click here.

YOUR MATCHDAY PROGRAMME...

For decades, the matchday programme has been a quintessential part of the football experience on a Saturday afternoon and in mid-week.

We know how valued the programme is to a number of our supporters and we have been proud to see this publication win several awards during the past few seasons for its rich, varied content and appealing design.

Since the advent of the digital age, programme sales at all professional football clubs have steadily declined.

During the 2019/20 season – the last campaign in which we saw fans inside football stadia – The Stag made a negligible profit.

As can be appreciated, the programme must be cost-effective from a business standpoint.

For the reasons above, the club will be using this season as a litmus test to decide whether to continue producing a programme. This will be totally subject to sales.

We will endeavour to provide exclusive content, where possible, and hope that you continue to purchase The Stag regularly and encourage others to do so as well.

The programme’s future relies on whether supporters like you show a desire to keep the programme as part of the matchday experience. And for this publication to continue, sales must increase this season.
