Oldham Athletic are delighted to announce a ground-breaking new agreement with online fans' forum, Oh When The Blues.


Established and run by a dedicated group of Latics fans, OWTB (www.owtb.co.uk) has quickly established itself as the number one Oldham Athletic messageboard and boasts a massive -- and ever-expanding -- membership. Following months of talks, the two parties have finalised and signed a formal agreement which sees OWTB come on board as the Official Messageboard of Oldham Athletic. The new tie-up supersedes the existing OAFC Official Messageboard, which was not heavily used. All parties involved feel OWTB's user interface and moderation are a vast improvement on the previous club messageboard and represent what a fans' messageboard should be.


Under the agreement, Latics will bear the operating costs of the site and earn per-hit advertising revenue from the minimally-intrusive sites already added by web partners Perform Group. Additionally the two parties have entered into a merchandising agreement which will expand upon the current policy of club/OWTB branded merchandise being sold via both the Club Shop and OWTB.


Oldham Athletic's Press Officer, Stu Vose, commented:


"Myself and the club are absolutely delighted to tie up this new association with Oh When The Blues.


"They offer a fantastic facility to Latics fans worldwide and are keen to work together with us to drive things forward in the future.


"The link also opens up a valuable revenue stream for the club and I am confident this agreement will be beneficial for both Oldham Athletic and its thousands of supporters.


"But I am keen to stress that the club will in no way censor or dictate what is discussed on the site -- our number one priority is to make sure Oh When The Blues retains the independent and free-speaking nature which made it so popular in the first place.


"The existing management and moderation team remain unchanged and they do a fantastic job."


So, if you've not yet experienced OWTB -- our new official messageboard -- why not do so today? Signing up couldn't be easier.


Simply log on to www.owtb.co.uk or access the site via oldhamathletic.co.uk by clicking on the 'Message Board' link under the 'Fans' tab.


Then you will be validated by a member of the moderating team in order to open up the full Oh When The Blues experience.
