Club Statement: Wanderers Take Action

Banning orders issued as Wanderers act following derby disorder

26 October 2021

Wanderers can confirm that nine banning orders have been issued to home supporters in the aftermath of the club’s League One fixture at home to Wigan Athletic earlier this month.

Several ejections were made on the day and the individuals identified have now been suspended from the University of Bolton Stadium.

Those involved will be required to meet with club safety staff and safeguarding teams and Greater Manchester Police before any possible return. Further police action could follow in some instances.

Wanderers’ Chief Executive Officer Neil Hart said: “Disorder and anti-social behaviour will not be tolerated at the University of Bolton Stadium and these steps show that we will take action.

“There also remains a long-term plan to identify further individuals responsible for anti-social actions and offences.

“This will continue throughout the season with BWFC working alongside partner agencies and Greater Manchester Police to ensure incidents seen at previous fixtures are eradicated and to ensure that supporting and watching Wanderers is a safe and enjoyable experience.”

Wanderers are also introducing a compulsory, free Club Membership scheme for all supporters buying match-day tickets to help the club be aware of who is entering the stadium and to maximise ground safety.
