Default Oldham Athletic FC (UK) touring Bangladesh, May 2007

Read the following in The Daily Star about Oldham Athletic FC from the UK touring Bangladesh in May 2007. Great to get a club from England to play in Bangladesh as we need to boost up football popularity again in Bangladesh:

"Manchester-based football marketing agent ABA Marketing, Promotions & Sports Consultants on Saturday singed a 5-year contract with Bangladesh Football Federation (BFF) to pick young Bangladeshi footballers under their talent hunt programme.

Under the contract, ABA will initially select five to six talented Bangladeshi booters in 15-21 age group in the first batch for a couple of years to groom them under famous English football clubs like Manchester United and Oldham.

The selected players will fly for the United Kingdom under a long-term package program not only to be groomed under the English clubs, but will also have a chance to play in the junior team of the clubs.

The ABA scouts and representatives will finally select the players in May next year from a shortlist during the Bangladesh tour of English First Division club Oldham Athletic.
Oldham will arrive here on May 6 to play some exhibition matches against Abahani and Mohammedan."

Got email from Oldham Athletic FC Chief Executive, that they are planning to hold a press conference on Tuesday 9th January, hopefully detailing the tour.
