Bet UK’s Rotherham United Away Day Guide
Rotherham United and Swansea City have only met once in the last 10 years, and haven’t actually faced each other in the league since 2007. The 2 sides met in 2014 in the League Cup 2nd Round, with Swansea running out as 1-0 winners thanks to a Bafetimbi Gomis goal. Before that League Cup meeting, you have to head back to when both teams were in League 1. Swansea won the away fixture that season with a 2-1 win at Rotherham’s old ground, Millmoor.
At the time of writing, this has been a very mixed season for Rotherham. An opening day horror show at Brentford has been followed by strong wins against two of last seasons best teams in Millwall and Derby. Their main problem is a leaky defence, which was not helped by their 5-1 loss on the first day. All of their wins so far have been 1-0, so expect the Millers to shut up shop and make it hard to win. If you’re making the trip up to follow the Swans in Yorkshire, then Bet UK have got everything you need to know.

How to get to the New York Stadium?
Driving to the New York Stadium from Swansea
If you are driving up to Rotherham, head out of Swansea on the M4 and leave at exit 24 on to the A449. Follow the A449 as it merges into the A40 and then the M50 into England. Join the M5 at the end of the M50, and then follow signs for the M42. The M42 will take you all the way around Birmingham and will eventually merge into the M1. Continue along the M1 until junction 33, where you can follow signs to Rotherham, and then the New York Stadium.
There are a few different play and display options around the New York Stadium. The stadium is located quite close to the centre of Rotherham, so any car park in the town centre should be good enough. The Interchange Bus Station also offers parking for just £2.80 for 4 hours.
Trains From Swansea to the New York Stadium
It’ll be an early start for anyone planning on travelling by train to Rotherham. Trains leave regularly from 6:47 to 8:29 that will get you there in plenty of time for the match.

This still gives you around an hour to leave the ground and head to the station after the match. The station is only a 5 minute walk away, so this shouldn’t be a problem for travelling Swansea fans.
