ODEON Family Stand Activities

14 April 2017

There are a variety of activities occurring in the ODEON Family Stand tomorrow as Oldham Athletic face Bolton Wanderers (12.30pm kick off).

Due to the supporter relocation, the family area for Saturday’s Oldham Athletic vs. Bolton Wanderers game will be located in the bottom right hand corner of the Chaddy End (in the C). The activities will take place in the concourse behind the stand.
 
There is an Easter theme to this weekend’s activities which include an Oldham Athletic Easter Egg Hunt taking place from 11:30am until half-time. Small cardboard Easter eggs will be hidden around the stand and if found need to be taken to Kiosk three (nearest the North Stand) to be swapped for a prize. The Easter Egg Hunt is limited to children aged 16 and under with only one egg per child allowed.
 
In addition there is a design your own Easter egg competition with the prize being a large Easter egg for the winning design.
 
Jens Creations will be at the game to provide children with free face painting and also balloon art. The face painting will be located near to kiosk three with the balloon art located at the turnstile pre-match before moving to kiosk three during the match.
 
In addition, there will be the usual activities such as jenga, connect four and table football. Young fans will also have the chance to take part in competitions such as guess the attendance and man of the match. As always, Chaddy The Owl will be around the ground meeting and greeting junior fans. If you see Chaddy around the ground on Saturday please say hello and have a picture with him.
 
Finally, fresh fruit will be available from Kiosk three as well as the hot food options. Please be advised that kids meals will only be available from kiosk three.
