THE wait for new owners is over, and for many Oldham Athletic fans that spells the end of their Boundary Park boycott.

And that was reflected on the first day of season ticket sales since the Rothwell family’s takeover was announced last week, with over 1,000 sold within the first 12 hours.

The ticket office was closed for a month and season ticket sales suspended while the new owners carried out thorough due diligence.

The shutters were flung back open at 12 noon yesterday (Monday August 1) and, as well as online sales, fans also flocked in their droves to Furtherwood Road to make their purchase in person.

For many, it is the first season ticket they have bought in three years.

Manager John Sheridan and his number two Tommy Wright were there to greet them, signing autographs and posing for help photographers with delighted Oldham Athletic supporters.

Early bird prices, available until 11.59pm on August 7, are: Adults £270, Over 65s £140, Under 21s £140, Under 18s £46, Under 7s free with an adult

Standard prices from midnight on August 8 are: Adults £330, Over 65s £180, Under 21s £180, Under 18s £69, Under 7s free with an adult

Season tickets can be bought from the ticket office in the Main Stand on Furtherwood Road and also online.

Supporters who had a season card for the 2021/22 season and would still like to retain the same seat can do so until 11.59pm on August 7.

Ticket office opening hours this week are 12pm-6pm 10am-6pm today (Tuesday) and Wednesday, 10am-8pm Thursday and Friday, 9am-1pm on Saturday, closed on Sunday (August 7)

Season tickets which were purchased before 30 June are also now available for collection.

Any season ticket purchases now made online will be available to collect the next working day. Proof of ID is required when collecting season cards.
