Bolton In A Pickle

July 13, 2016

Bolton Wanderers financial concerns may be the cause of some unwise choices.

Sheffield United fans are disappointed by ticket prices for next month's visit to Bolton Wanderers

Sheffield United supporters are upset by ticket prices for next month’s visit to Bolton Wanderers.

What will Bristol Rovers supporters pay when we visit The Macron Stadium in September?

In a season in which PL Away match tickets are fixed at £30 BWFC ticket prices seem odd.

Simultaneously, the Football Supporters Federation “Twenty Is Plenty” campaign remains well supported.

Faced with anger from Blades fans about the first league match of the season Wanderers have “acted”.

Bolton Wanderers have offered an “olive branch” to Sheffield United fans for the opening day of the season match.

BWFC have altered their plan to prioritise the sale of top-tier tickets worth £30 for Saturday August 6th 2016.

Instead, 1,100 seats in the lower tier will be made available on Monday 18th July 2016, priced at £28.

Once the lower tier tickets are sold out, the top-tier tickets will then be sold at £30.

Will Bristol Rovers supporters be treated the same way on Tuesday 28th February 2017?


Bolton Wanderers Ground at Burnden Way, Bolton, Greater Manchester, BL6 6JW will be known as The Macron Stadium until at least 2018.

In the 2015/16 season, Bolton Wanderers had Category A, B, C and D fixtures.

For the 2016/17 season, category A fixtures include Boxing Day and the last Home game of the season.

A Category D fixture last season saw prices dropped to £15 across the board; including Forest in August 2015.

Perhaps the Pirates midweek fixture will be placed in that category.

Then again. 

We should hear soon.
