Law Cup

The Law Cup is a traditional pre-season game between Oldham and close rivals, Rochdale Hornets.

First staged in May 1921, the game’s original title was the Infirmaries Cup. Proceeds from the games were distributed between hospitals in the boroughs of Oldham and Rochdale.

The cup itself was donated by the Rochdale MP, Mr A.J.Law, who provided “a handsome Silver Cup for the Competition” and the winners received gold medals “the gift of Rochdale and Oldham gentlemen”.

The competition subsequently became know as the Law Cup in commemoration of its original donor.

There have been 69 fixtures including one replay after the inaugural game was drawn 0 - 0.

Oldham have won the cup 46 times to Rochdale’s 21. The cup was jointly held by both clubs in 1954 and 1976 following drawn games.

The current holders are Rochdale who won 18 - 12 at the Crown Oil Arena, Spotland on January 12 2020.
