Later kick-off time for Oldham's Hurricanes clash

Date published: 26 July 2022

Oldham's Betfred League One game at Midlands Hurricanes RLFC, in Birmingham, on Sunday, August 7, originally scheduled for a 3pm kick-off, will now start at 5.30pm.

Another event has been arranged to take place at the ground that afternoon, hence the switch to an early evening kick-off.

A reminder also that the Roughyeds' game at Cornwall RLFC on Sunday, August 21 kicks off at 1pm to allow for the long drive home for both players and Oldham fans.

Oldham's six remaining fixtures, with kick-off times, are as follows:

This Sunday, July 31 (3pm), at the Vestacare Stadium, Oldham v North Wales Crusaders

Sunday, August 7 (5.30pm), Midlands Hurricanes v Oldham (away)

Sunday, August 21 (1pm), Cornwall RLFC v Oldham (away)

Tickets for this Sunday’s home game against high-flying North Wales Crusaders, who are second in the table, are available online now, but the turnstiles will be open as usual from 1pm for those fans who prefer to get into the ground that way.
