Rule change affecting season ticket holders in North Stand

Following a directive received from The National League that all away clubs should be allocated 15% of available tickets, it will be necessary to use the Auto Windscreens (North) Stand for Oldham Athletic supporters in the forthcoming game at the SMH Group Stadium.

Director Ashley Kirk said: “The rule change was communicated to the club two weeks before the season start and well after the club had taken the decision to make the North Stand a home area. It came as a great surprise as the change had not been communicated before or even discussed at the AGM.

“Fortunately, there are very few clubs in the league who will take the 15% allocation, but during those occasions we will relocate the existing season ticket holders to a higher grade seat and obviously apologise for the inconvenience this late call by the National League has caused.”
