Bolton Wanderers season ticket holders will shortly be receiving an email inviting them to vote for one of two options in relation to helping the Club plan for their safe return to a capacity-restricted University of Bolton Stadium when the local region moves into Tier 2.
The Club looks forward to welcoming fans back into the University of Bolton Stadium at the earliest opportunity.
However, whilst Greater Manchester and Bolton are designated by the Government as being in COVID-19 Tier 3, this is currently not possible.
The Government is due to announce the outcome of its next Tier review on or before Wednesday 16 December and, therefore, the Club wants to plan for the possibility that Greater Manchester becomes Tier 2 and we are permitted to welcome supporters back to the Stadium.
As previously confirmed by the Club, our approximately 8,000 season ticket holders and corporate/hospitality members will be prioritised under any COVID-19 capacity restricted game in the Stadium; ‘away’ supporters are prohibited from attending by Government regulation.
The Board recognises and appreciates the challenges for spectators of attending capacity-restricted matches at the Stadium under new COVID-compliant rules and obligations. In the interests of being open, transparent and fair, the Club is inviting all season ticket holders to vote on the restricted ticket allocation options which will be detailed in the email that will be sent to season ticket holders.
We hope to be able to see you all soon!
The deadline for the votes to be submitted is 5pm on Friday 11 December.
