WIN or lose, Oldham could enjoy a decent pay day from Sunday’s Betfred League 1 promotion semi-final against Bradford Bulls at the Provident Stadium (Odsal).
It’s a shared gate and the Bulls, the best supported side in League 1, could attract a crowd of 4,000-plus for a sudden-death encounter with so much at stake.
With season tickets invalid, they’ve already made an impassioned plea to Bulls fans to turn up in force, to make Odsal rock and to cheer their favourites into the play-off final against Doncaster or Workington Town.
They seem to be aware, though, that matches of this nature don’t always go as expected.
Chairman Andrew Chalmers has gone on public record, saying:
“In semi-final football you can throw the form book out of the window.
“It’s scary stuff. Players do crazy stuff. Anything is on the cards.”
The game kicks off at 3pm and normal Bradford admission prices (bought before game day) will be charged.
Terrace standing: adults £18, concessions £13, juniors £5.
Provident Stand (seats): adults £23, concessions £18, juniors £10.
BULLS FANS ARE IN THE HABIT OF BUYING TICKETS BEFORE GAME DAY SO OLDHAM FANS NEED TO BE AWARE THAT THESE PRICES INCREASE BY £2 IN EACH CATEGORY IF PURCHASES ARE MADE AT THE TURNSTILES ON THE DAY.
Fans can buy in advance on-line by visiting the Bradford Bulls website.
