Matchday Guide: Eastleigh (H)

11 November 2023

Latics are back at Boundary Park for the visit of Eastleigh.

Micky Mellon's side return to National League action and supporters are asked to arrive in good time for kick-off due to the pre-match schedule.

Remembrance Tributes

Our usual remembrance tributes will carry further poignancy this year as our home fixture falls on Armistice Day.

The tributes will be led by the 1855 (Royton) Squadron RAF Cadets and the Royton branch of the Royal British Legion.

Ahead of kick-off, we will be joined by serving and non-serving personel at the side of the pitch. Wreathes will be carried by Poppy Princesses, Millie Hardaker and Olivia Marshall, before being handed to the two captains and laid in the centre circle.

The Exhortation will be read by the Bishop of Manchester, the Rt Rev David Walker, and Bishop Tony Porter. The Last Post will be played by bugle before a period of silence.


Tickets can still be purchased online for this game up until 3:00pm. 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 open on matchday from 11am until kick-off.

Admission can also be gained by paying cash at the turnstiles.

Athletic Store

Open from 9:30am on matchday, Athletic Store is the place the visit for all your Latics memorabilia, replica kits and clothing.

There's a new range of items ow available, including the Autumn Essentials, while there are now great discounts on the popular Midnight Collection.

Located in the corner of the Joe Royle Stand, home and away kits are now on sale, as well as a full range of Puma merchandise.

The shop is open until 5:30pm

DK Services Fan Bar

Situated behind the Joe Royle Stand, the Fan Bar is open for this game from 12pm.

With improvements continuing to be made all the time following its opening last 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.

Matchday Programme

Available for £3, the new-look 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 1pm.

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.

Additional Information

Ahead of kick-off, we will be taking part in a minute's appluse in memory of Sir Bobby Charlton, who passed away last week.

We will also be welcoming pupils from Royton & Crompton E-Act for a pre-match cheerleading performance.
