OLDHAM Athletic's upcoming home friendlies against Burnley, on Saturday, and Crewe Alexandra next Tuesday, will both be pay on the day.

And ahead of welcoming supporters back to Boundary Park for the first time in almost 17 months, the club has announced the relevant access information for both fixtures.

Entry to both games is via cash turnstiles, priced £10 for adults and £5 for under 18s and over 65s - a decision that has been taken as the club continues the process of transferring over to a new ticketing partner.

Car parking will be available to supporters behind the Joe Royle Stand (North Stand), priced £5 for cars and motorcyles, £10 for minbuses and £15 for coaches, payable on entry to the relevant stewards.

Car parking permits are not allowed in this area and supporters are advised to be aware of restrictions in the surrounding neighbourhood in front of properties, which are clearly signposted.

Three stands will be in operation for Saturday's visit of Burnley (kick-off 1pm), with turnstiles for the the Jimmy Frizzell Stand (Rochdale Road End), including OACT Family Stand, and Main Stand open for Latics fans from 12 noon. The Joe Royle Stand will be closed.

The Chadderton Road End will be open for away away fans, with turnstiles also open from midday.

For Tuesday's visit of Crewe, only the Jimmy Frizzell Stand and Main Stand will be open, with turnstiles operating from 6pm.

The OACT Family Stand will be open for away fans only, with turnstiles in operation from 6pm also.

Both the Chadderton Road End and Joe Royle Stand will be closed.

Supporters are advised to take their seats 30 minutes before kick-off where reasonably possible and avoid arriving late.

For both games, the following COVID-19 operating measures are still in place to ensure supporters enjoy a safe experience, despite the complete relaxation of restrictions:

Regular hand sanitisation stations will be situated throughout Boundary Park.

The club recommend that all supporters wear a face covering when in enclosed and indoor spaces, such as the toilets.

Oldham Athletic will not be enforcing a strict seating policy, but where possible fans should keep a reasonable distance apart from those supporters that they have not travelled to the game with.

Food and drink kiosks will not be open for either of the friendlies but will return for the start of the league campaign, on Saturday, August 7, against Newport County.

Supporters will, however, be allowed to enter with pre-packed food and soft drinks in plastic containers. Anyone found attempting to enter the turnstiles with alcohol will not gain entry and anyone found consuming alcohol in view of the pitch will be ejected and face possible criminal prosecution.

The club's ticket office will also be closed for both fixtures but will be back open for normal hours throughout the week and for the first League Two fixture of the new season, while the club shop will be open for both friendlies.

A club statement read: "As a club we can't wait to have supporters back inside the ground and look forward to the two fixtures where the players, management and staff will be able to interact with you again in-person."
