Family & Community Stand

There is a variety of activities going on in the Family and Community section on Saturday as Oldham Athletic face Portsmouth.

The Family Stand volunteers will have the usual choice of activities such as table football & creative play. In addition junior supporters will also be able to write letters to their favourite Oldham Athletic players.

Kids meals for our junior supporters and fresh fruit will be available from the kiosk within the Family & Community section.
