Five hours of activities for £5
Latics' first home league game of the season saw the return of the popular OAFC Matchday Club, this year sponsored by J D Williams.
The club proved so popular that within days of the information for the club being released it was fully booked for the first fixture against Walsall.
Activities included a lowdown of the Matchday Club, a tour of Boundary Park and a chance to see the behind the scenes work that goes on before a home fixture as well as having the opportunity to use Laticzone Study Centre’s state-of-the-art computer equipment.
All this in addition to watching Latics' Sky Bet League One match against Walsall. Although the result didn’t quite go to plan there were still smiles a plenty come 5.30pm as a great time was had by all.
There is one significant change to this year’s club schedule. The Matchday Club will be running from 12.30pm-5.30pm this season, meaning five hours of activities for only £5.
Club members arrive at Boundary Park between 12.30pm and 1pm with the week's planned activities beginning at 1pm. After the activities the children will then be escorted to the family section of Boundary Park where they will enjoy the match with their free complimentary junior match ticket accompanied by the Matchday Club staff.
Parents pick their children up from Laticzone at 5.30pm to avoid the busy matchday traffic.
Activities for the season include:
·Creating tannoy announcements to be played on Matchdays (enjoy the match)
·Designing new signs/posters for around the family area of the ground;
·Animation filming / music and advert making
·Healthy eating workshops, where the children can prepare their own healthy meal.
·Football coaching pre-match by fully qualified and CRB Trust coaches.
Other activities include meeting Chaddy the Owl and Latics' players pre-match.
