INITIAL tickets for Wrexham AFC's away trip to Oldham Athletic sold out within the first half-hour.

The popularity of the club has sky-rocketed since the takeover by Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney was complete in early 2021.

And that, coupled with the international recognition the Welcome To Wrexham is bringing for the Reds, is seeing ticket sales go through the roof both home and away.

The latest proof of this comes ahead of Wrexham's tie away at Oldham Athletic which is scheduled for October 1.

The initial 2,300 tickets made available for travelling fans for the clash at Boundary Park were snapped up within the first half-hour of going online on Monday, September 12.

Such was the speed that tickets were brought for the tie, Oldham are now considering putting more on offer in the coming weeks to Reds fans.

A statement from Wrexham AFC read: "Our hosts have confirmed that our initial allocation of 2,300 tickets for the match against Oldham Athletic at Boundary Park, on Saturday, October 1, have sold out.

"The tickets went on sale this morning and were quickly snapped up by Wrexham supporters as we prepare for our first league match at Boundary Park since 2004.

"We have been informed that additional seating may be released over the coming weeks, but this is dependent on advice from Oldham's safety advisory group and the police.

"We will issue communication should any further tickets go on sale, prior to any release. Thank you once again for your incredible support."
