Food, Drink and Programme Boycott

Following our statement on Monday 23rd December 2019, we feel we are left with no option but to proceed with a full food, drink and programme boycott within Boundary Park for all home games for the foreseeable future.

As a group, we respect people’s views on whether to take part in this boycott or not, but we would encourage participation in order to send a message to the custodian of our football club that by ignoring and treating fans, staff and ex players with contempt in the manner in which he has, fans will, as they currently are, voting with their feet. A reduction in fans through the turnstiles will impact the club directly in terms of its finances and this boycott will highlight this in a more tangible way. It is also bringing our plight to the attention of more football fans, something we feel is necessary.

We will release more details as each home game approaches to remind people as well as highlight the issues to visiting fans that visit Boundary Park, including alternative venues to obtain food and drink around the football stadium.

As part of this action, we will be encouraging fans to instead donate to a worthy charity that will be chosen by the fans of Oldham Athletic. Donations can be made via a Just Giving page, details of which will be announced once the charity has been chosen. In order to choose this charity, please follow the link https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/Y6HL6Q3 and make your selection. As with all our surveys, we would encourage as many people to participate as possible. The survey will close at 12pm on Sunday 29th December. Below is a little information on each shortlisted charity to allow you to make a more informed decision

This will be the first of many different forms of protest designed to indicate to the club our dissatisfaction with the current regime. Details of such action will be advised in due course.

As always, we welcome feedback from you all via twitter, facebook and to our email address (info@pushtheboundary.co.uk) so please feel free to contact us. We appreciate all your support and comments and we try to take as much on board as possible. We must be patient and apply pressure in various different ways to ensure that the club sit up and take notice of us, the fans who have followed our club through thick and thin with a loyalty that is unquestionable. We have other things in the pipeline that will become clear in the next few weeks so stay tuned.

Thanks for reading
