Bolton and Google join forces for unique live Hangout

Fans from around the world join to welcome Neil Lennon for first home game in charge

Bolton Wanderers made history ahead of the recent game against Brentford by being the first club to allow fans from around the world to welcome a new manager for his first home match in charge.

Via the club’s first Google+ Hangout, ahead of kick off live streams of fans from around the world were projected onto the perimeter LED hoardings that surround the pitch at Macron Stadium.

Fans located around the world sported their Bolton Wanderers colours in their own homes and offices with their streams displayed pitchside as the players and manager emerged from the tunnel ahead of kick off.

Ollie Smyth, Google+ Football Community Manager, said: “We were delighted to help Bolton Wanderers bring their fans together using Google+ to welcome Neil Lennon to Macron Stadium. 

“It was great to see so many Bolton fans show their support on the club’s first ever Google+ Hangout.”
