Enjoy Tees Valley

We’re planning to showcase why we’re so proud of our region as Boro face Sky Bet Championship table-toppers Norwich.

We're renaming the Riverside for the day in honour of one of our most famous sons, with Boro supporters recently voting for 'Captain James Cook Stadium' as the temporary moniker.

In recent months, we’ve been able to toast the news that Take That will become the Riverside’s first major concert, BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend is set to hit Boro with some of the biggest names in the music business, and the Rugby League World Cup, Jess Glynne and the Great North City Games are all coming to our area. 

As flagbearers for the region, we’re encouraging fans to join us in a celebration of our area.

The stadium will be decked out in red and white, a flag display, and local band Cattle and Cane will be playing their Teesside-inspired song Infant Hercules on the pitch ahead of the game.

Tickets start from £27 for adults, £18 for over 65s and £13 for Under-18s. The Ticket Office will be open from 9am until 6pm on Saturday, with Early Bird Season Cards now also on sale.

Bring A Quid

Teesside Hospice have recently launched a Patient Comfort Appeal fundraising mission with the aim being to buy 10 new beds at a cost of £4,900 per bed.

Raising £49,000 is a challenge for the hospice – but we’re hoping you can help make a difference on Saturday by ‘bringing a quid’ to donate to the cause. 

This is a chance for Boro fans to help such an important local charity that has had an impact on so many peoples live from all around Teesside.

There will be a bucket collection on the day of the game, and fans will also be able to donate via the tills in the club store and on the concourses. 

Support the Patient Comfort Appeal


Boro's FanZone returns this Saturday as we celebrate the Tees Valley.

Positioned behind the North Stand, the FanZone will be open from 2.30pm until 5.15pm as well as after the final whistle until 8.15pm.

Pre- and post-match entertainment will be led by TFM compere Kenny, and north-east four piece Black Acid Mavericks will add to the atmosphere with live music.

There are plenty of activities on offer as well as giveaways and great prizes up for grabs.
