Matchday Guide: Southend (H)

18 April 2023

Latics return to Boundary Park for the second home game in succession with the visit of Southend United.

As usual, there’s plenty going on around the ground ahead of kick-off and we’d like to encourage all supporters to arrive as early as possible for the evening fixture.


Tickets can still be purchased online for this game up until 7.45pm. Please note, for away fans, there is a separate ticketing page.

The Ticket Office, located at the front of the Main Stand, off Furtherwood Road, is now open until kick-off.

Admission can also be gained by paying at the turnstiles.

Fan Bar

Situated behind the Joe Royle Stand, the Fan Bar is open for this game from 5pm, with a DJ before and after the game, in addition to food and a wide range of drinks and food.

With improvements continuing to be made all the time following its opening in the summer, the bar has proved to be increasingly popular with supporters ahead of home matches.

There is good capacity in the bar to welcome more fans and it is the ideal way to kick off a matchday at Boundary Park.

A second big screen has recently been installed and with a new layout, refurbished bar and a wide selection of drinks available, it is a great way to catch up with friends and enjoy the atmosphere on a matchday.

Club Shop

There is a wide range of new items in the Club Shop which have proved hugely popular after their launch in recent weeks.

The Midnight Collection, featuring an all black clothing range including shirts, trousers, jumpers, hoodies and gilets, and 12 graphic tees, which were launches last month, are also on sale.

Further new items include a range of retro kit mugs (1991-92 away, 1993-95 home, 1995-96 away, 1998-00 home), Flat Cap Frank mug and t-shirt, additional items in the Midnight Collection including beanie hats and further accessories including water bottles.

There is also a fantastic 50% off end of season sale on all of this season’s kits and training wear.

The shop is open until kick-off.

Matchday Programme

Available for £3, the matchday programme provides all the latest information from the club and features a range of exclusive content which is different from the club’s online channels.

The team of programme sellers are located around the outside of the ground, or you can visit the programme office, next to the Main Stand, from 6pm.

Car Parking

Home supporters should use the parking facilities at the back of the Joe Royle Stand, off Hilbre Avenue, which has a cost of £5. Please use the postcode 'OL2 5BL'.

Visiting fans are asked to use the car park at the Royal Oldham Hospital, which is only a short walk from the ground and again costs £5. A steward will be on hand to assist.
