Boundary Park (capacity 13,512)
Boundary Park has been home to Oldham Athletic since 1904 although the capacity, which was once nearly 50,000 has been significantly reduced over the years, and is now all-seated. The stadium famously had a plastic pitch between 1986 and 1991, though it was pulled up when they were promoted to the top flight because of league rules.
The most recent addition to the stadium is The Joe Royle Stand, which was opened in 2014, and named in 2018. It is a single tiered stand which contains corporate hospitality, club offices, and exhibition space. It gives the stadium a much more modern look to it. However, the stadium also has large floodlight pylons in each of the four corners, which means the stadium retains a traditional feel.
Away fans visiting Boundary Park are located in the Chadderton Road End, with an allocation of just under 4,000.
