About Oldham Athletic: 

Pine Villa was formed in 1895 but on July 4, 1899 ceased to exist.

However, there were no tears because the name was changed and the birth of Oldham Athletic came about. Latics enjoyed success in the early years finishing runners-up in the First Division (the equivalent of today's Premier League) in 1914/15 having earlier reached the FA Cup semi final in 1913.

They were founder members of the Premier League back in the 1992-93 season, and stayed in the top flight for three seasons - one campaign in the old First Division, two in the Premier League.

In July 2022, local businessman Frank Rothwell completed his takeover of the club, later purchasing the Oldham Event Centre (OEC) based in the Joe Royle Stand.
