Oldham Athletic was founded as Pine Villa F.C. in 1895, 121 years ago. In recent times the club has been through highs and lows, from being an inaugural member of Premier League in 1992 to administration in 2004, but through the ups and downs the Latics fans have stuck by their team and been a credit to the club.
The club knows there are many ways in which the fans would like the experience at SportsDirect.com Park to be improved, but operates in a world of constrained finance and needs to focus all expenditure into the playing budget. Now, OAFC is looking to work together with Latics fans on a plan to raise £120,000 to improve match-day experience through FanFunding. With the contributions of OAFC supporters around the world, we hope to raise enough money to buy and install a Big Screen, so we can #knowthescore at all times – and to bring pre-match entertainment, in-game replays and fan interaction to every game, as well as generating advertising revenue to reinvest in the club.
