New partnership with Oldham Community Leisure“An added bonus is that our season-ticket holders will be able to enjoy generous discounts on membership .”
“OCL have great facilities combined with accessible locations. The team’s fitness is obviously extremely important and this will be a tremendous benefit to the club.
Latics’ Commercial Manager Jenny Warburton said: “The partnership with Oldham Community Leisure is a natural fit.
“The agreement enables the players to potentially use all seven of our pools and gyms, though most of the recovery work will take place at Oldham Sports Centre.”
“Latics’ season-ticket holders who join will be given a significant discount on membership. Many of our members are fans and it will be a great opportunity for them to train alongside the players.
He said: “It is a great opportunity for both parties to share information and also help each other with marketing.
Stuart Lockwood, Oldham Community Leisure’s CEO, is excited by the link up with Latics.
The players are not the only beneficiaries of the sponsorship package as Latics’ season-ticket holders are also going to be given a “significant” discount on membership if they sign up with OCL.
They will be able to use the facilities at Oldham, Chadderton, Crompton, Failsworth, Glodwick, Royton and Saddleworth.
The deal, which initially covers the 2012/13 season, will enable Latics’ players to use the gym and pool facilities at the Borough’s seven sports centres for recovery sessions.
