OLDHAM Athletic have announced their season ticket prices for the 2021/22 campaign.

Prices have been placed into three categories – those renewing, fans who had a season ticket in 2019/20 who did not buy one this season due to uncertainty around the Covid-19 pandemic, and finally any new season ticket holders.

For renewals, adults are priced at £160 if bought before April 16, rising to £180 until May 7, £200 before May 28 and £230 after that.

As a comparison, last season’s early bird price for adults was £270.

For concessions - over-65s and under-21s – next season it is £100, £115, £130 and £140.

Under-18s range from £23 to £30, £35 and £40 while under-12s are free with a paying adult or concession.

On prices for current season ticket holders, the club said: “The renewal prices take into consideration your support and understanding of the club’s current financial position and we believe will offer one of the lowest season ticket pricing structures in the EFL.”

For 2019/20 season ticket holders it is £180 for adults before April 16, rising to £200 until May 7 and £230 thereafter.

Concessions are £115, £130 or £140 with under-18s £30, £35 and £40.

New season ticket holders will be charged £200 up to May 7 and the full £230 after that point.

Concessions are £130 or £140 and under-18s £35 and £40.

Any fans wanting refunds for this season can do so after May 28 where they will be due £40.02 if the season finishes behind closed doors, worked out as the difference between the ticket price and buying iFollow passes for home games.

A club statement read: “When looking at potential refunds for the current season and pricing for the 2021/22 campaign, we have taken into consideration the detrimental effects the current pandemic has had on our fanbase from both an emotional and financial perspective, and also the club with regards to cash flow.

“We have put together a fair reflection of your commitment to Latics, alongside what you have received from iFollow and the current financial climate.

“As well as recognising season ticket holders for 2020/21, we have also considered the difficult decision that 2019/20 season ticket holders made at the end of that campaign in not renewing based on the uncertainty of the future.”

The club also said fans would be offered the chance to switch to the Joe Royle Stand should issues be resolved and the stand opened. 

“It remains a priority for Oldham Athletic to have the seats in the North Stand (rightly known as the Joe Royle Stand) available for next season when we hope to be welcoming fans back to Boundary Park,” the statement added.

“If any supporter purchases a season ticket for the 2021/22 season and subsequently wants to transfer to the Joe Royle Stand, we will accommodate this request at no further cost and will attempt to re-house any supporters in the seat they held in this stand in previous campaigns."
