Families at Pride Park Stadium
Derby County Football Club prides itself on providing a fun day out for all families when they visit Pride Park Stadium and the club has been awarded the EFL’s Family Excellence Award in each of the past six seasons, as well as achieving the prestigious Gold standard accolade for its work in engaging families on matchdays on two occasions.
For further information, you can view our Home Supporter Guide here.
Green wristbands, which we have introduced for the 2023/24 season to help keep children safe, will be available free of charge from Rammie & Ewie’s Activity Zone located in Harrison’s Hub. Staff will be offering parents/guardians the opportunity to receive a green wristband that your child can wear.
Parents/guardians can write their contact details, stand and seat number on the wristband. If your child was to become separated from you or felt unsafe, they could approach a steward or member of staff and show their wristband. The steward or staff member will then duly contact parents/guardians.
Rammie and Ewie’s Activity Zone
In the 2022/23 season, we introduced a new free fan engagement initiative, designed with families in mind, labelled as Rammie and Ewie’s Activity Zone. The Family Fun Zone gives families an interactive and enjoyable safe space to take their Rams Youngsters and keep them entertained before the game. Rammie and Ewie’s Activity Zone is hosted in Harrison’s Hub, which is in the North West Corner of Pride Park Stadium.
Our Rams Youngsters can take part in a number of exciting, family-friendly activities ahead of kick-off. We have colouring and crafts competitions where a lucky Rams fan can win exclusive prizes, face-painting*, a video-games nook, foosball, ping-pong table, games, meet and greet opportunities with Club Mascots Rammie and Ewie, and the Pride Park Tuck Shop (small change required).
The Family Fun Zone is open from 1:30pm until 2:45pm for a 3pm kick-off and is closed for mid-week home fixtures, unless one of our home league games which fall on a Saturday moves to a mid-week fixture, due to circumstances beyond our control.
Families will need to make one booking per family.
To make your booking, please follow the appropriate link below.
Please Note: We occasionally take photographs and shoot videos in Rammie and Ewie’s Activity Zone. If you do not wish to be filmed or photographed then please speak to a member of staff on arrival to Harrison’s Hub.
Face painting is subject to availability *

Say 'Hi!' to our mascots, Rammie and Ewie!
Most matchdays include a special appearance from club mascots Rammie and Ewie too - who watch the game along with the fans from various positions around Pride Park Stadium, so make sure you look out for them!
Matchday Supporter Liaison Officers
In August 2008, Derby County launched its fans first initiative, putting our supporters at the forefront of the club’s matchday experience.
Look out for our Matchday Supporter Liaison Officers (MSLOs) in their blue coats, here to answer any questions you might have on arrival to Pride Park Stadium. The team might even have a few goodies to give away too!
