Pitch in to back Oldham
Date published: 11 December 2012
OLDHAM Rugby League Club are asking fans to back a sponsorship scheme which has the potential to raise £56,700 towards the Whitebank ground’s development.
Fans can sponsor one or more one-metre squares of the pitch for £10 a square; the money raised will go into a ground-development account to be used exclusively for that purpose.
The pitch can be divided into 5,670 squares of those dimensions, and supporters will receive a certificate for each square they sponsor.
Despite delays caused by circumstances outside the club’s control, plans continue for a new stand on one side of the ground, terracing on the other, extra turnstiles and new toilet and refreshment facilities.
In a letter to season-ticket holders and an upbeat message to rank-and-file supporters, chairman Chris Hamilton said the club needed to raise as much money as it could for ground improvement.
For details contact the club on 628 3677.
