We've sold more than 20,000 tickets for our first home game of the campaign.

Tickets will be available on the day with the Ticket Office open from 10am until kick-off. 

As ever, we're advising to buy in advance and beat the queues, with the 'print at home' option available for all online purchases.

Season Cards are also still available ahead of the first Riverside fixture.

Buy online at the Ticket Office for Boro v Brentford.


Saturday’s match sees the opening of our new go-to meeting spot for supporters. 

Sponsored by Heineken, the FanZone is located opposite the Ayresome Park gates, replacing the old Ticket Collections booth.

BBC Tees DJ Gary Philipson will be joined there by Teesside singer songwriter Alistair James to help launch the venue, while Neil Maddison (1.40pm) and Bernie Slaven (5.30pm) will visit pre- and post-match to give their verdict on the game.

The FanZone is open from 12.30pm.

The Twe12th Man Bar will also be open at the full-time whistle to all supporters, with offers on food and selected drinks and plenty of music. 

Goal Music

After consulting Season Card holders over the summer via our matchday experience questionnaire, goal music will continue to be played at the Riverside this season.

The questionnaire was distributed to all Season Card holders who had opted in to receive club communications, and completed by 2,640 of those recipients.

More than 76% of those who had a preference were in favour of goal music.

Further findings from the questionnaire will be made available to supporters shortly, as well as comment from the club on plans and changes which may be implemented as a result. 

Foodbank Collection

The Middlesbrough Supporters Forum are once again urging generous supporters to donate food for the Middlesbrough Foodbank at Saturday's fixture.

We saw a hugely successful collection last season at our home game against QPR, and supporters can once more make their donations in the car park near the North West Corner of the Riverside between the Club Shop and the Twe12th Man Bar from 12noon.

Bucket Collection

Boro fan James Rose is aiming to be the first unaided Military double amputee to climb Mount Kilimanjaro in aid of Help for Heroes and The Royal British Legion. Look out for James and his supporters around the Riverside. Please support as much as you can.

Family Zone

Turnstiles to the Generation Red Family Zone open at 12.30pm with plenty of fun to be had. You could win a copy of FIFA 20 as well as many other great prizes, while there's chance to make a good luck card for Jonathan Woodgate and his coaching team which will be delivered in person at Rockliffe Park by a few lucky fans.

#UTB Matchday Programme

Our official matchday programme #UTB is the cheapest in the Sky Bet Championship and is once again packed with reading that you won’t find anywhere else.

In our first issue of the season, Jonathan Woodgate writes an exclusive message to fans, while Marcus Tavernier and Marcus Browne are put under the spotlight when they are interviewed for a job and reveal their firsts and lasts.

We have a new history feature marking the 25th anniversary of our departure from Ayresome Park with memories and stories from our famous old home. We also look back on past meetings with our opponents and our popular On This Day feature remains.
