August 2023 Round Up

2023/24 Football Season Begins!

This month, football returned to Boundary Park as Oldham Athletic started their season! We loved welcoming fans back to the OACT Family Stand and as part of the new season we will be welcoming fans to our new and improved Junior Latics Lounge, which launched on the 12th of August

The room will now be the new home to the tuck shop and has been painted in OAFC colours (Blue and Tangerine) and has windows with a view of the pitch, enchancing the matchday experience for junior latics fans! 

The room will also host activites throughout the season, so keep an eye out to find out when these will be!

As well as the new room, the new season also sees us welcome Matchday Mascots and Flag bearers! You can see the highlight video below showing all of our matchday offering!
