Memorial service to mark Burnden Disaster anniversary

Club to hold memorial service on exactly 70 years to the day of the Burnden Disaster

On exactly 70 years to the day, Bolton Wanderers will hold a special memorial service to mark the anniversary of the Burnden Disaster.

The short service will take place pitchside at Macron Stadium on Wednesday 9 March, exactly 70 years to the day on which 33 supporters lost their lives during an FA Cup tie between Bolton and Stoke City at Burnden Park.

The names of those who died will be read out during the service from a new memorial book which will be placed on permanent display in the reception area at Macron Stadium. 

Entry to the memorial service is open to the public, with gates WX7 and WX8 by block A at Macron Stadium’s West Stand open from 2.30pm ahead of a 3pm start.
