Oldham Athletic will visit the John Smith’s Stadium at the end of July to take on Huddersfield Town in a pre-season friendly.
Taking place on Saturday 31 July at the Terriers’ home, kick-off is expected to be in the late afternoon (4:30pm) against the Championship side, where the team will wear the new style tangerine shirt for the first time before the start of the 2021/22 campaign.
It is hoped that supporters will be able to attend the match, with discussions ongoing. Further details will be communicated nearer to the time once confirmation is given by the Government on the lifting of restrictions after the recent four week extension.
This fixture will complete the pre-season schedule across July, with one more side to be announced in due course.
