Boro Info - Stadium Info

THE RIVERSIDE STADIUM
Please remember like a lot of other PL grounds the Riverside is a seated only stadium, which means you are not allowed to stand.
Of course if you want to sing "stand up, if you love Boro" then there is no problem, however standing through the whole match will result in future punishment by means of an attendance allocation cut-back if you are an away team fan. Be sensible.!!

PROGRAMMES
The MFC official programme "Red Square" is available en route to the ground and the Boro fanzine "Fly me to the Moon" is also available around the ground. Both publications cost about £3.00 each. Once you arrive at the automated turnstiles, slide your credit style ticket into the slot at the turnstile and enter, you are NOT allowed to smoke anywhere in the Riverside Stadium remember not even the toilets or in the outside seated areas.

IN THE CONCOURSE AREA
Remember - You are NOT allowed to smoke anywhere in the stadium.
Inside the ground there are lots of TV screens etc so you can keep up to date with the team news and latest scores etc.
There are bars and betting offices together with the usual fast food burger bars. In some areas there are also play station game consoles. There are also numerous 'Ladbrokes' betting offices around the ground where you can have a flutter on the final score if you want.  Being a Boro-Fan I always go for Boro win 2-1 but don't hold me to it.!!!

IN THE (GROUND) SEATED AREA
Remember - You are NOT allowed to smoke anywhere in the stadium - Sorry this is a bore but rally relevant.
Remember - You are NOT allowed to stand during the game, the Riverside is a seated stadium only.

MALE TOILETS
There are plenty of these in all parts of the ground - male toilets are constructed of the stainless steel trough style variety, common now to so many football stadiums where getting sheer numbers through as fast as possible is the main purpose rather than individualitiy.  Toilets are clean and functional with hand wash and dry facilities and an array of coin op machines for every occasion.!!  There will be an obvious rush at half or full time when you can expect some delay but any queue is constantly moving. While you are having a pee you can also stand and observe one of many 3D adverts that are now located on the walls in front of you, those marketing guys know when they have a captured audience!!!

FEMALE TOILETS
There are plenty of these in all parts of the ground.
They are clean and functional with hand wash and dry facilities and an array of coin op machines for every occasion like the male toilets.!!  Just like the guy's toilets though, expect delays at peak times such as half and full time but any queue is constantly moving.  I have been reliably informed (by my wife) that toilet paper, soap etc has never been a problem so go spend that penny with confidence!

CLUB SHOP(S)
There is a large club shop located at the North-West corner of the ground (located near the river).
There is also one of the largest retail football stores in the country located in the Albert Square shopping centre.
This is in central Middlesbrough - through the main bus station.
