OLDHAM ATHLETIC’S BOUNDARY PARK IN NAME CHANGE

Oldham Athletic’s Boundary Park is to be re-named the SportsDirect.com Park.

The retailer Sports Direct have signed a five-year deal with the League 1 club, including shirt sponsorship, an agreement Oldham say is the biggest commercial package in their history. 

Latics chairman Simon Corney said: “This is a landmark day for the football club. This deal is a first for Oldham and shows that the long-term future and stability of the club is at the forefront of our minds.”

The first game at the newly-named ground will see Oldham take on Premier League team Newcastle United on 15th July.
