Oldham Athletic donate sponsorship to Community Trust

Oldham Athletic have announced that they have gifted the front of shirt sponsorship to the Community Trust for the remainder of the 2020/21 season.

OACT, the charitable arm of the club, will feature on the shirts for the six remaining games of the campaign after the space became available.

Over the years the Community Trust has grown substantially and increased their superb support to the local area in a number of ways. 

Most notably, their dedication and desire to use the power of football and Oldham Athletic has shone over the last twelve months in their mission to support the most vulnerable locally during the pandemic.

By being on the shirts the Trust aim to use the opportunity to further promote their name and proactive work to a much wider audience, whilst also strengthening the close working partnership they have with the club.

On the announcement, Head of Community Martin Vose said: "We are privileged and proud to be given this fantastic opportunity and a huge thanks must go to Oldham Athletic for this.

"The relationship between OAFC and OACT has gone from strength-to-strength this year, during the most difficult of times for all. This is evidenced by the partnership work on initiatives such as 'Food For Thought' and the incredible amount of player engagement which has been undertaken to support our various community projects.

"As a local charity much of our work is centred around Oldham, however this opportunity will provide us with the platform to increase the awareness of OACT on a national level."

Whilst, CEO Karl Evans added: "When I came into the club late last year it was obvious that the relationship with the Community Trust is a vital one as both organisations can help each other in many ways.

"I am really pleased that the Trustees have taken up our offer to be on the first team shirts for the rest of the season, which is also a great indication of how we both approach the many issues that the local community face as there is plenty of support available already from the Community Trust."
