Boro's new FanZone at the Riverside will open from 5:30pm for the first round Carabao Cup fixture against Crewe Alexandra (Tuesday August 13, kick-off 7:45pm).

After the success and popularity of the Fanzone opening against Brentford, we will be opening the Fanzone at 5:30pm for supporters coming to the Crewe Alexandra fixture on Tuesday 13 August. Supporters can relax and have a drink at the new two-tiered venue sponsored by Heineken, which is located opposite the Ayresome Park gates and replacing the old Ticket Collections booth.

As well as the Heineken Bar, there’s table football and a range of activities to enjoy and as well as live music and entertainment to add to the atmosphere.

The FanZone will be open from 12.30 noon for 3pm matches, and 5:30pm for evening kick-offs.
