Summer Bash tickets now on sale from Oldham club

Summer Bash tickets are now on sale from Oldham RLFC and we ask all our fans to buy their tickets from us because the money then stays with the club rather than with the RFL.

It works like this. Each club gets a ticket allocation and each club has to pay the RFL a not inconsiderable amount, running well into four figures, towards the costs of staging the two-day event.

The only way a club can recoup that money, or at least some of it, is through its own ticket sales so every Summer Bash ticket bought from us is of direct benefit to your club at a time when every penny counts.

We can’t stress that too much. If you plan to go to the Summer Bash weekend at Bloomfield Road, Blackpool on Saturday, May 30 and/or on Sunday, May 31 then please get your tickets from the Roughyeds office at the Vestacare Stadium, Whitebank Road, Oldham OL8 3JH on any Monday, Wednesday or Friday between 10am and 3pm.

You can ring between those times on 07904 898177 or make contact by email to: enquiries@roughyeds.co.uk

Summer Bash games are hugely significant because Betfred Championship league points are at stake.

Oldham play Swinton Lions on the Sunday (May 31) with a 1pm kick-off. The full weekend programme is like this:

SATURDAY (May 30): Batley Bulldogs v Dewsbury Rams (3pm); Halifax v York City Knights (5.15pm); Featherstone Rovers v Bradford Bulls (7.30pm).

SUNDAY (May 31): OLDHAM v Swinton Lions (1pm); Sheffield Eagles v Whitehaven (3.15pm); Leigh Centurions v Widnes Vikings (5.30pm).


Ticket prices are as follows:

FOR ONE DAY (Saturday OR Sunday): adults £25; concessions £12.50; season-ticket adults £12.50; season-ticket concessions £6.25.

FOR BOTH DAYS: adults £40; concessions £20; season-ticket adult £20; season-ticket concessions £10.

Three sides of Bloomfield Road will be open — the Matthews West Stand (named after the legendary Stanley Matthews); the Armfield South Stand (named after the great Jimmy Armfield); and the Mortensen North Stand (named after that great Blackpool and England centre-forward Stan Mortensen).

All seats will be unreserved and fans from the various clubs will be accommodated like this:

South Stand (including South-West): OLDHAM, Dewsbury Rams, Halifax, Bradford Bulls, Whitehaven, Widnes Vikings.

North Stand: Batley Bulldogs, York City Knights, Featherstone Rovers, Swinton Lions, Sheffield Eagles, Leigh Centurions.

Oldham fans will be placed in the South and South-West stands as indicated by the orange/amber coloured areas of the seating plan.

They can sit anywhere between blocks N and Z (half of Matthews West and all of Armfield South) as there is free-flowing access throughout that area.

The RFL has historically allocated seats for this venue, but it was thought more sensible to follow the Magic Weekend model, allowing fans the freedom to group together and make some noise when watching their own team but to sit elsewhere during other games.

Said RFL chief executive Ralph Rimmer:

“Summer Bash at Blackpool has become a highlight of the Rugby League calendar and we are sure the 2020 event will again provide some great moments for the fans in the stadium and for those watching at home.”

Club Cash

SINCE Covid-19 caused us to temporarily abandon door-to-door CLUB CASH lottery collections last Spring there’s never been a better time to come on board and help Roughyeds to get through these hugely challenging times.

Why? The £500-a-week rollover jackpot is back — not only that there are now TWO £50 prizes and TWO £25 prizes in addition to the first prize of £1,000, a second prize of £100 and ten consolation prizes of £10.

But the return of the jackpot is the big lottery news. It’s back this week and it’s been won first time out, so next week’s jackpot is again £500 but if nobody touches lucky it will go up to £1,000 the following week and increase by £500 a week, if not won, to a maximum of £10,000.

We have seriously missed the regular income from collections on the doorstep, but we cannot thank too much those supporters who have got behind the club in these unprecedented times of hardship by keeping their Club Cash memberships going or, indeed, by joining for the first time, knowing that for £1 a week they can help the club to combat Covid and prepare with confidence for the challenges of Betfred Championship rugby in 2021.

You can send a cheque to cover a set number of weeks; take out a bank standing order — our preferred option; complete a bank transfer; or pay for several weeks up front by credit or debit card.

You can download a standing order form by clicking on the link at the end of this news release and following the instructions or you can contact our Club Cash administrator John McAndrew (tel: 07980 129541; email: mcandrewj@aol.com) or speak to the club direct on 07904 898177 or email to: enquiries@roughyeds.co.uk

The easiest way, though, is to download a standing order form below. The latest prize updates are shown on the form as follows (all for £1): £1,000, £100, £50 (2), £25 (2), a number of £10 consolation prizes and the £500-a-week rollover jackpot.

Best of luck!
