Just had information through about the new Mcfarland’s bar, it’s a little late notice but if you can make it I think it would be worth a look.
The New McFarland’s Bar opens this Saturday and is FREE to experience on Saturday with memberships for the season being sold on the day.
Some of the 71/72 winning team are now scheduled to be in there for a Q&A.
The lounge is open from 11.30am until 2.45pm on a first come first served basis. The early kick off will also be shown in there.
In honour of the Rams Legend Roy McFarland, Derby County last month named the bar in the Pedigree Suite, McFarland’s Bar and it will be in use exclusively for season ticket holders for the first time on Saturday when Sheffield Wednesday head to Pride Park Stadium.
As part of an introductory offer, the first 300 memberships of McFarland’s Bar will be available exclusively to season ticket holders for only £10 for the 2012-13 season, thereafter memberships will revert to the normal price of £25.
There will be a limited number of available memberships that can be purchased on Saturday within the Pedigree Suite for those that would like to see the facility prior to purchasing their membership but entry will be on a strictly first come first served basis. All prior purchased memberships will be guaranteed entry.
Legendary Rams Alan Hinton and Terry Hennessey, as well as a number other popular faces from Derby County’s title-winning 1971-72 team including the man himself- Roy Mac will be gracing McFarland’s Bar on Saturday and so season ticket holders are encouraged to get in early to secure entry.
McFarland’s Bar @ The Pedigree Suite will be hosted at each home game by a Derby County compere who will deliver sports quiz competitions, interview special guests and distribute prizes courtesy of Club Partner Marston’s. Past and present Derby County players, plus mascot Rammie, will be regularly in attendance throughout the campaign.
In addition a wide range of wines, beers and soft drinks will be on offer, with the best beer prices around from only £2.50 per pint available from opening time until 90 minutes before kick-off. A choice of hot food will also be available to purchase from the newly installed Butcher’s Block facility.
Speaking at the unveiling of McFarland’s Bar, he said: “It is a great honour to have the supporters bar named after myself, especially on the 40th anniversary of winning the 1st Division Championship title.
“I think it is a great idea by the Club to offer the supporters such a great facility on a match day, and I shall certainly be popping in throughout the season for a pint!”
Season ticket holders are encouraged to purchase their membership prior to the opening game from the Digonex Ticket Office or by calling 0871 472 1884 (option 1) to take advantage of the offer and enhance their matchday experience.
Just a reminder that Roy will be visiting us in November another great reason to join the DCDSC again this season.
