Bolton Wanderers reveal number of season tickets sold since takeover was completed

Bolton Wanderers have revealed how many season tickets have been sold since the takeover was completed a fortnight ago.

Over 7,500 have been snapped up as of Thursday the 12th of September, incredible considering they were put on sale 6pm on Monday. Should it continue to rise, plus add the additional fans that don’t have a season ticket as well as the away fans they could look to beat their 2018/19 average of 14,239.

Bolton talk of the ticket prices on their website, they say: “An adult season ticket in the North Stand will cost just £216 (17 games) in both the lower & upper tiers. That’s just £12.71 per match! Whilst over 65s season tickets in same stand will cost just £157 at just £9.24 per match!

“Under 23s & over 75s will pay just £143 throughout all areas of the University of Bolton Stadium for their 17 game season ticket, at an incredible £8.41 per match!

“Under 18s season tickets are priced at £57 in all areas, which equates to as little as £3.35 per match! Meanwhile, under 12s are priced at just £42 for the season in all areas. A massive saving of just £2.47 per match!

“Bolton Wanderers remain committed to affordable live football for the family; so a family ticket offering of one adult and one under 18, in the designated family area in the North Stand Upper Tier, is just £250. That’s just £14.71 per match!”

She told The Bolton News: “This is the power of football.

“The fans have been through so much. They feel like they’ve been hurt and they’ve been trodden on and they feel disgruntled with the club and they feel downbeat and they feel sad.

“Then two weeks after completion there’s 8,000 people who have bought season tickets and for me that is football.

“Thank you, thank you, a heartfelt thank you to each and every one of you that have supported us and bought season tickets.

“We will do everything we can to make you proud.”

“We took careful consideration over season tickets,” the chairman said.

“We all know the fans have had a very difficult time and there was a game missed last season, a game missed this season, and we wanted to make sure the price was a fair reflection of where we are today.

“We’re not in the perfect place but we’re a lot better than we were two weeks ago and as we go forward that will get better and get stronger and the fans will see what we’re doing.

“It’s great to talk but I also think it’s great to deliver and I think that’s what we’ve got to do now.”

Manager Keith Hill said: “As somebody who was born in Bolton and lives in the town I know how much this football club means to all our supporters.

“It has been a difficult time for the fans but since the new owners have been in place, there is a real sense of positivity around.

“This is an incredible opportunity for you to get on board and be a part of our future, and we will repay that faith you have shown us. There is no doubt about it, Wanderers will rise again! You will lift us!”
