Host Families Wanted

16 August 2017

Oldham Athletic Football Club is currently looking for Host Families to accommodate young players between 16 - 18 years of age.

This is a rewarding opportunity to be involved in the development and support of young Oldham Athletic players.

At this time, the club is specifically looking for families to accommodate players for holiday cover for existing host families however we may require full time accommodation for players in the near future.

Homes need to be located within a reasonable distance of Oldham Athletic Football Club, OL1 2PA and the successful candidates will provide a room (per player) and meals (breakfast, packed lunch & dinner) in either a five night per week or seven night per week agreement.

They must provide a suitable and safe environment and are encouraged to include young players into their family life.

All our host families are regularly visited by the Academy Designated Safeguarding Officer as well as the Academy Manager and are required to provide satisfactory references and an enhanced DBS check.

In return, the club will provide the host family with a weekly payment as well as the necessary information to ensure you understand the needs of an elite athlete.

If you are interested in finding out more information or would like to apply to be considered as a host family then please contact our academy administrator, Natalie, by email on or by post to Natalie Seaton, Oldham Athletic Football Club, SportsDirect.Com Park, Oldham, OL1 2PA.
