Lovely stadium. Looks very well looked after and well designed. Easy to arrive to and overall a lovely environment. Only giving it a 4* since water pipes are at the edge of the stand and spray water in the stands really easily getting everyone wet. Not very pleasent but slightly refreshing on a hot day

The stadium was ok to be honest. Away seating was more than adequate plenty of leg room. Parking is available from Doncaster you need to book in advance so recommend doing this if you want to park. Prices are what you would expect from a stadium quite steep for certain items. On our visit there was no atmosphere from the home fans there weren't many of them to be honest. Overall, a nice pitch Which looks well maintained and looked after.

History (from Wikipedia)

The first game played by Doncaster Rovers in the new stadium was on 1 January 2007 against Huddersfield Town, whom they beat 3–0.[12] The game also saw the first three red cards in the new stadium.[13] Doncaster Rovers' centre forward Mark McCammon was the first player ever to score on the new pitch.

Doncaster's first loss at the stadium came five days later at the hands of 
Bolton Wanderers when they defeated the Rovers 4–0 in the 3rd Round of the FA Cup.[14]

On 14 January 2007, 
Doncaster Rovers Belles' first match in the main stadium resulted in a 5–2 defeat to Leeds United, before a crowd of 1,797.[15] Vicky Exley was the first Belle to score on the new pitch.[16] The stadium hosted the final of the 2012–13 FA Women's Cup.[17]

The highest ever attendance at the Keepmoat stadium was 15,001 for the visit of 
Leeds United.[18] Rovers also achieved attendances of over 14,800 at the Keepmoat Stadium in games against Sheffield Wednesday and Newcastle United.

On 3 March 2010, it hosted 
England’s under-21s 2011 UEFA European Under-21 Championship qualification Group 9 match against Greece’s under-21s. The hosts lost 2–1 with the visitors goals coming from Kyriakos Papadopoulos on the 28th minute and Yiannis Papadopoulos on the 49th minute while Nathan Delfouneso scored for the hosts on the 80th minute.

Since the 
EFL require all matches to be played on grass pitches, the stadium will be used for all of Harrogate Town's matches for the first month of the 2020–21 season whilst the club replace their synthetic pitch at Wetherby Road.[19]
