Matchday Activities

The club's mascot packages are the ideal way for your child to celebrate a special occasion with friends and family and to feel like part of the First Team squad for the day and make memories that they will never forget.

Experience the build up and take in the atmosphere as your child has a pre-match warm up on the pitch, before walking out with their heroes for a photograph in the centre circle.

An Oldham Athletic mascot package includes:

  • Meet and greet the Oldham Athletic players in the changing room.
  • Pre-match kickabout with Chaddy The Owl.
  • Escort players onto the pitch.
  • Receive certificate, trophy and signed programme.
  • Profile in the Oldham Athletic matchday programme.
  • Food voucher (Family Stand only).
  • Two complimentary tickets.
  • Discount tickets available for other family members.

The price is £50 for Junior Latics members (it is free of charge to join Junior Latics) and £60 for non-members, this does not include the kit.

The Family and Community Section is situated within the Jimmy Frizzell Stand and is the 'C' and 'S' part of the Latics lettering of the stand.

From the 2018-19 season an indoor kids zone has been introduced where young supporters can play vidoe games as well as take part in various activites.

The Family and Community Section offers young fans and families the opportunity to watch as well as being able to take part in various activities throughout the day.

The Junior Latics run a tuck-shop, providing hot and cold refreshments as well as a tuck-shop for those with a slightly sweeter tooth – fresh fruit is provided free of charge at every game.

Activities and competitions are a regular feature within the stand – throughout the season young fans have the chance to take part in activities such as face painting, balloon art and fencing whilst themed days such as Halloween and Christmas occur.

Advanced reduced ticket prices for the Family and Community Section are:

  • Adult - £16
  • Junior - £5
  • U12 - £5
  • Concessions - £8
