The Riverside Stadium will be renamed the Captain James Cook Stadium for our game against Norwich City as we celebrate all that’s great about the Tees Valley.
In partnership with Enjoys Tees Valley, we are planning to showcase why we’re so proud of our region at what will be a huge game in the Sky Bet Championship promotion race against the Canaries on Saturday March 30 (5.30pm).
Fans had the chance to vote from a choice of names in renaming the stadium, for one day only, inspired by Captain James Cook, with the Riverside named in his honour for the match as we celebrate our area at our Enjoy Tees Valley fixture.
The stadium will also be decked out in red and white, with 25,000 flags and local band Cattle and Cane will be playing their Teesside-inspired song Infant Hercules on the pitch beforehand.
There will be a Tees Valley-themed FanZone featuring the Rugby League World Cup trophy on display, which will also be on show in the Club Store from 4pm.
We’re also urging supporters to ‘bring a quid’ to the game in aid of Teesside Hospice’s Patient Comfort Appeal, with the aim to buy 10 new beds at a cost of £4,900 per bed.
Fans can purchase tickets for the game against Norwich City online or by calling the Ticket Office on 01642 929421
