The Bantams are back on the road this Saturday as they travel across the Pennines to visit Boundary Park for a Sky Bet League Two clash with Oldham Athletic.

We have compiled a handy Away Day Guide - packed full of useful information ahead of the 3.00pm contest!


Boundary Park

Furtherwood Road





Boundary Park has been home to Oldham Athletic since opening back in 1904. 

The 13,513-capacity venue has also been home to Oldham Rugby League Football Club this century, prior to its renovation in 2014. 

An all-seater venue, Boundary Park comprises of four stands; the Chadderton Road End - where Bantams supporters will be housed - the Main Stand, the Joe Royle Stand and the Jimmy Frizzell Stand. 


Supporters are reminded that there will be NO PAY-ON-THE-DAY option at Boundary Park this afternoon.

Close to 2,000 Bantams are set to descend on Greater Manchester for the encounter, but supporters are advised tickets will not be available to purchase on the day of the fixture.

Any tickets that have not been collected from the Utilita Energy Stadium can be collected from Boundary Park, but queues are expected as there is no away ticket office.


Parking on match days is available in the Hospital Car Park (OL1 2PA) for a cost of £5. A steward will be on hand to assist. 

Space here is limited, however, and supporters should arrive early in order to avoid disappointment. 


To drink:

The Greyhound Inn which is across Broadway down Holden Fold Lane, welcomes visiting fans, shows Sky and BT Sports and serves real ale. 

It also has a large car park which can accommodate coaches and is around a 10-minute walk away from the visitors' turnstiles.

The Rifle Range Inn is happy to accommodate away fans on the day of the clash, with a range of ale and free parking available. 

It is a 10-minute walk from Boundary Park and the postcode is OL1 2QP.

To eat:

The closest pub is the Clayton Green, which is a Brewers Fayre outlet, and can be found 200 yards from the corner of the Main Stand and Chadwick End, on Sheepfoot Lane. 

Food is also available inside the concourse of the stand, with the usual selection of pies and pasties on offer. 


By car:

Leave the M62 at Junction 20 and take the A627(M) towards Oldham. Take the second slip road off the A627(M) following the signs for Royton (A663).

At the top of the slip road you will find a large roundabout that on the left has a McDonalds and a KFC. Take the second exit onto the A627 towards Oldham/Oldham Royal Hospital.

After passing a Vauxhall Garage and Clayton Green Brewers Fayre pub (which is used by away fans), turn left at the traffic lights.

Follow the road around to the right and with the B&Q store in front of you, bear left onto Westhulme Way which leads into Westhulme Avenue.

Continue along this road where Boundary Park will be at the end of it, on the left. 

By train: 

To reach Oldham on train you should get the train to Manchester Victoria or Picadilly before alighting to get the tram.

Once in Manchester, get on the tram to Oldham Tram Stop which is approximately a 20-minute walk from Boundary Park.

PLEASE NOTE: Supporters are advised to leave plenty of time for travel and allow for delays - particularly when using public transport - as Storm Eunice continues to impact. 


A wet afternoon could be in store for supporters, with temperatures of 6°C, sleet showers and strong winds expected as Storm Eunice continues its disruption.
