G4S scores with The Millers
From July, G4S will be providing a range of security services at the club’s new site, the New York Stadium, including car parking marshals, crowd searches, ticket checks and stewarding.
G4S will secure the club’s first game at its new site, for a pre-season friendly against Barnsley FC on 21st July.

“It is great to be expanding our footprint in this part of the country and we are looking forward to using our extensive experience to provide a seamless security solution whilst expanding our football credentials.”
Rotherham United’s Stadium Manager, Paul Davis said:
“Having worked with G4S previously during the transition between our old and new stadiums, we are confident that they can provide the expertise required to ensure the safety of our players and fans at all times.”
