Altrincham FC announce half-price tickets to celebrate signing of United loanee, Maxi Oydele
It's a win-win for everyone.
Altrincham FC have confirmed they will be selling half-price tickets for their upcoming game against Solihull Moors this weekend to celebrate the signing of exciting youth prospect, Maxi Oydele.
Confirming the clever attendance-boosting initiative on Thursday, 23 February, Alty will be selling off tickets to Man United supporters and football fans in general at 50% of the usual general admission price.
This means that adults will be able to go along for just £9.50, with juniors basically costing little more than the price of a posh coffee.
Given Oydele’s parent club, the only catch is the people have to turn up in a United shirt or come along with proof when buying online with code the ‘mufc50’.
The 18-year-old only joined the Robins back in January as part of United’s “innovative new loan scheme” designed by the club’s academy coaches, aimed at providing them with experience and a specific raft of challenges that only non-league football can provide.
Born in Salford, young Maxi won the FA Youth Cup with United last year and has already declared his national allegiance to Poland. He was also included in the matchday squad for the Reds’ away game against Omonia FC back in October.
He scored his first senior goal on 19 February against Woking (even pulling out the Rashford celebration) and went on to grab his second for the National League club against Barnet on Tuesday, all within the space of a week.
Not a bad start, is it?
- Bolton Wanderers book first trip to Wembley in over a decade
- Fight fans slam ’embarrassing’ Tommy Fury vs Jake Paul PPV price
- More celebs and ex-pros sign up for ‘Manchester Remembers’ charity football match
Oydele is on loan at the J Davidson stadium until the end of the season and looks to already be impressing his manager and the fans.
More importantly, ideas like this are a great way of getting more people to go along to non-league games, not only to support local teams but also to get a glimpse of their clubs young players.
