It is almost 25 years since the mighty Raith Rovers lifted the Coca-Cola Cup against Celtic at Ibrox and the club have been working hard to mark this occasion accordingly.
A very special thank you is due to our organising committee for all of their efforts in pulling together a range of events and merchandise to mark the occasion. Further announcements will be made all this week as we countdown to Saturday’s match versus Peterhead.
In time for this Saturday, we have the following merchandise available. Please note that these are first-come, first-serve and are VERY limited! Once they are gone, they are gone!
Raith Rovers Limited edition Whisky ‘The Final Blend’
Fans* can purchase one bottle from the club shop for only £30 pre-match on Saturday and then collect it after full time
Raith Rovers Limited edition Vodka

In the club shop, as well as our new stock just in for Christmas, we will also have:
Commemorative T-Shirt – sporting the iconic blue and white Coca Cola cup can on the front and the record of penalties on the reverse. The t-shirt will be available in sizes Small – XXL and will be £15.
27/11 Mug – With great pictures of the day priced £7
Old School Pin Badge – available to purchase online and from the club shop now, only £3.50
Special edition of the Rovers Review, featuring articles and contributions from many fans who were there on that special day priced. Can be bought online for only £5.
As well as Retro Rovers event on Saturday, we also have two events organised:
Our first event is the sold out 27/11 brunch at the Strathearn this Sunday with a host of former players and hosted by BBC’s Scott Davie.
Then on Wednesday 27th, we will have a more informal night in the Raith Suite starting from 7pm where the full cup final match will be shown on the big screen. All welcome (but limited to 70 people).
We are sure there is something for everyone from the list so far… but now for the frustrating news. Despite having our specially commissioned commemorative 1994 replica top ordered since early in this year with our overseas supplier, we have learned this week that there has now been a delay to our delivery and, as yet, we do not have a due date. We are still hopeful that it will be very soon but we can’t yet tell of the date and certainly won’t be before Saturday. We are very disappointed, as a huge effort has gone into this and we are sure it will be very popular. As soon as it becomes available, we will get it to you.
Keep checking social media this week for further announcements relating to the Scottish Cup game on Saturday versus Peterhead. We hope to see as many of you down as possible to help cheer the team on for what is sure to be a great day. Look out your best Retro Rovers top for the game, and see you there. ‘Mon The Rovers!
