The #KnowTheScore received a massive boost today receiving full backing of the campaign from Trust Oldham and its director, Simon Brooke.
The campaign aims to generate funds to buy and install a new screen or scoreboard at SportsDirect.com Park and will now run until the end of the season.
Once installed, it will improve the match day experience for fans, with the potential for live scores, replays and fan engagement.
All advertising revenue generated by the big screen will be reinvested directly into football operations, and the club believes that this is a crucial step on the road to sustainability and long-term success.
This is a campaign for the fans, by the fans, and the screen is therefore going to be a fan-owned asset.
That means that ALL money raised by the campaign will be ring-fenced for fan activities and the screen ONLY, as determined by Trust Oldham.
Brooke commented: “This isn’t a charity pot, it is an asset for the fans and revenue from that will go into fan initiatives next season. Get behind it!”
If the target is not reached, the funds will be ring-fenced until such a time that the club is able to raise the required amount. The nature of the screen Latics are able to purchase will depend on the total raised.
#KnowTheScore rewards Latics supporters for backing the club they love. All contributions go directly to Oldham Athletic AFC, come with a reward and start at just £5!
The campaign is for a limited time only and we have plenty of unique and exciting rewards and experiences!
