The University of Bolton Stadium will open its doors to Bolton Wanderers fans for the first time in over 18 months when the club welcomes supporters for a special Bolton Wanderers in the Community family event on Sunday 25 July.
The ticket-only event will start at 10am and last until 3pm with fans able to watch manager Ian Evatt and the first team squad taking part in an open training session on the pitch from 11am, culminating in a cross-bar challenge at midday.
Supporters, who present their tickets at the turnstiles of block L in the Nat Lofthouse East Stand, will then be able to access a first team signing session at Bolton Central from 1pm.
There will be live music and entertainment provided by Bolton FM and local groups throughout the day.
The event is ticket-only with a limited amount available and we encourage supporters who book to kindly make a donation to Bolton Wanderers in the Community to help support the work they do to engage with local communities in Bolton.

Bolton Wanderers CEO Neil Hart said: “This event marks a significant step for supporters returning to live stadium sporting events and we will be delighted to safely welcome home our fans to the University of Bolton Stadium for the first time in over 18 months.
“Excitement is building ahead of the new campaign and I know that Ian and the players are looking forward to meeting our supporters.
“The event will also benefit Bolton Wanderers in the Community whose work continues to help connect the football club with our town and community.
Bolton Wanderers in the Community CEO Phil Mason added: “The University of Bolton Stadium has been a quiet place without Bolton Wanderers supporters and this event will be special for everybody.
”BWitC has played a pivotal role during the COVID-19 pandemic by reaching out to those who have felt isolated by the social restrictions that have been in place.
“This has been achieved by the support we have received from our partners and by all those who have helped to raise funds.
“All donations will help BWitC to continue making a positive difference to the lives of people living within Bolton.
“The event is a shining example of our One Club, One Community, One Town vision.”
Also, on the day, Wacky World will be hosting an event in the Premier Suite. Further information is available here.
