Semi final ticket news

Date published: Tuesday, August 31, 2010

FANS are advised to note that we are anticipating a near-capacity or capacity crowd of 1,502 when we entertain York City Knights at Whitebank on Sunday week, September 12, in the Co-operative Championship One semi-final play-off.

The winners go straight through to the Grand Final at Warrington two weeks later, while the losers are given a second chance to make amends at home against the outright winners of the four teams finishing fourth to seventh.

York have taken a supply of tickets and are expecting to bring a following of 300 or more for a match in which they hope to repeat their 34-28 win in our historic and first-ever game at Whitebank on May 9.

Oldham fans have been buying tickets steadily since they went on sale last week and the club is urging others to do the same to make sure they are not disappointed on the day.

“We would love to hit the capacity and the signs are looking good,” said chairman Chris Hamilton. “Unlike most other games at Whitebank so far there is going to be a decent away following for this one and that in iself is going to push up the size of the crowd.”

Normal league prices are being charged and standing tickets are available Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm, from the club’s office in Lansdowne Road, Chadderton (tel: 0161 628 3677).

They are on sale at £10 adults, £8 concessions and £3 under-16s. The only seat tickets being sold currently are to season-ticket holders at £12 adults and £10 concessions, but seats will be available on the day for the usual transfer of £2 on a first come basis.
