Let’s pack out Boundary Park and give chairman Frank Rothwell a special welcome home - with admission for our fixture against Kidderminster Harriers just £1!
Frank has been away since the start of December and is now in the final stages of his solo row across the Atlantic Ocean as he raises funds for Alzheimer’s Research UK.
Having faced some hugely difficult conditions during his journey and capsized three times, he has shown tremendous strength and courage to reach this stage.
Due to restrictions imposed by segregation, safety measures and ongoing maintenance in certain areas, the total capacity for this fixture is 11,500.
As of 12 February, there are less than 1,000 tickets available for general sale.
We are all very proud of Frank and want to fill Boundary Park to give him a hero’s return for his first home game back on Saturday 24 February, kick-off 3pm.
It is also a very important game for Micky Mellon’s Latics in the quest for a place in the play-offs.
The club will be donating gate receipts from the fixture to Alzheimer’s Research UK.
Although admission is just £1, there is the option to make a further donation to Frank’s fundraising campaign when completing your purchase and we’re encouraging all supporters to give as much as they can.
The game is all-ticket with no option to pay at the turnstiles.
Please note that all under 14s must be accompanied by an adult.
Let’s get down to Boundary Park, create a special atmosphere and give Frank the welcome back he deserves!
