A reminder to Oldham Athletic supporters that the Chaddy End will seat home fans this afternoon.Commenting at the time of the decision, Mark Moisley said: “This is not a decision we have taken lightly or without a great deal of consideration.
“One of the key reasons for changing the away section two years ago was to avoid having to move our season ticket holders from their seat for some games, as we are now having to do with these two fixtures.
“We also understand the impact on our disabled supporters and the family section, and we apologise to all supporters who will be inconvenienced by this.
“The timing is far from ideal given that season tickets for 2017/18 will be shortly going on sale.
“We are faced, however, with a situation where up to 1,500 away supporters for each of these fixtures are unable to get tickets, whilst we have around 6,000 empty seats in the stadium.
“From a financial perspective, over these two games this could be a potential loss to us of over £50,000, and is something we simply cannot afford to ignore.
“Whilst not expecting those supporters affected to necessarily agree with the decision, we hope they will understand the reasoning behind this and continue to show their support to John and the team in these two big games.”
We apologise for any inconvenience caused but hope all supporters get behind the lads this afternoon.
