Spotland Stadium – stadium description
Built in 1920 it was initially a single main stand that at one point became the smallest in all of football league. Starting from 1988 ownership was split between Rochdale AFC (initial owner), Rochdale Hornets rugby club and the Rochdale municipality.
Thanks to that share scheme it was easier to finance renovations that took time from 1992 to 2000. As a result, four separate stands were built, each with cover, but one with terracing instead of individual seats.
