Why You Need To Be Here For Championship Football | Oxford United Football Club

The 2024/25 season is set to be the most exciting in recent Oxford United history, as we get set to embark on a campaign back in the Championship.

It’s the first time in 25 years in which United have played in the second division, with a host of historic names in English football set to come to OX4 for league football.

And you have your chance to be there for every single home game by purchasing your Oxford United season ticket, with full details on how to purchase found HERE.

So, why should you be at our home ground for the new season, here, we will give you all the reasons why season 2024/25 is set to be so special.


In 1999, Oxford United were relegated from the second tier of league football and has yet to return until this moment.

In that time, the U’s fell out of the football league, before returning in 2010 through victory at Wembley. 

League One promotion was secured in 2016, and now after our historic victory over Bolton in May at Wembley, we are back.

It means Oxford United are now just one step away from the Premier League, with huge teams heading to Oxford in the new season.

Relegated from the top tier is Burnley, Luton Town and Sheffield United, who make up the Championship alongside the U’s and fellow promoted teams Portsmouth and Derby.

There are a whole host of former Premier League teams in the league next season, with the likes of Leeds United, Norwich City, West Brom and plenty more. It’s one you don’t want to miss!


Of course, there are some big teams coming to Oxford, but next season will give everyone the opportunity to watch more of the promotion-winning football under Des Buckingham.

At the business end of the 2023/24 season, the Head Coach turned the U’s into a winning machine, only losing once in the final 11 games.

In that time, United won three games in succession with 13 goals scored and none conceded. Then, in the play-offs, they showed how to defend and control games against some of the league’s best teams by defeating both Peterborough United and Bolton. 

So get down to OX4 to watch this side in action once again.
