Riverside Stadium

Riverside Stadium is home of Middlesbrough Football Club. In addition to matches, try a fantastic tour or great food - a great venue for meetings, conferences & weddings!

Boro have responded to requests from supporters by introducing gluten-free meals at kiosks throughout the Riverside Stadium on match days.

The meals, for supporters who require special diets, must be ordered by noon two days before the match, so for a Saturday kick-off they must be received by Thursday.

Meals are prepaid in advance when booking tickets, while Season Card holders can purchase and collect vouchers from the stadium.

To order, please contact the Ticket Office on 0844 499 1234.
