OLDHAM Athletic have outlined ticket refund proposals to fans after the League Two season was cut short.

The club have presented supporters with three options while also thanking those who have decided against asking for their money back after home games against Swindon, Port Vale, Stevenage, Cambridge and Plymouth were not played due to the coronavirus pandemic.

In terms of refunds, the first deal offers each season ticket holders eight additional match tickets for friends and family next season.

To qualify you either need to be a season ticket holder for next season or buy one before July 30.

Fans can alternatively take a pro-rata reduction of five games on the price of the 2020/21 season ticket, whether it has been purchased already or not.

Option three is a direct, pro-rata refund on a season ticket for the games that did not take place at Boundary Park.

Refunds are expected to be processed in August but can, Latics say, be potentially fast-tracked depending on individual circumstances.

A club statement also outlined how a number of supporters have already agreed to forgo any rebate in “an act of kindness we are extremely grateful for and would like to thank you again for the fantastic gesture, especially taking into account the financial strain that all households are being placed under during these difficult and uncertain times.”

Those who decide to do it will be entered into a prize draw to win either three signed shirts, three signed footballs, four spaces in hospitality or free pies for the 2020/21 season.

Fans are being asked to state their preference by email to managing director Natalie Atkinson by July 30. Contact natalie.atkinson@oldhamathletic.co.uk.

Tickets bought for individual home and away games can also be refunded by contacting the ticket office once that is fully reopen.

Early bird season-ticket pricing is now set to remain in place until the start of the new season.

"Oldham Athletic are still involved in regular dialogue with other members of the EFL on what a return to football will look like," the statement continued.

"Although the exact dates aren’t known yet we are aware of the future cost implications. We would ask all fans to be patient whilst we adjust our budgets to ensure we can function in the new climate. We'd like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their support."
