Bolton Wanderers is pleased to launch a brand new 2021/22 Official Club Membership scheme.
Free of charge and with a simple sign-up process, club membership will help Wanderers identify and communicate better with their fanbase and, in turn, maximise safety in the stadium on a match day.
Official Membership will become mandatory for all fans wishing to purchase home and away League and Cup match day tickets from – and including – the first-round FA Cup fixture versus Stockport County on Sunday 7th November.
Please note season ticket holders do not need to sign up to membership this season. However, all supporters who renew or purchase new season tickets for the upcoming 2022/23 and subsequent seasons will be auto-enrolled as Official Club Members.
Neil Hart, Chief Executive Officer of Bolton Wanderers FC said: “In line with most other football clubs, we are moving towards a Club Membership scheme which we believe has many benefits.
“It will potentially help us have better contact with supporters and is also a great way for fans to become part of the official Wanderers’ family.
“We also want to make sure match day feels safe and welcoming for our fans who are there to embrace match day for all the right reasons.
“Following discussions with key stakeholders, we believe this is the most effective and sensible route to take.
“It’s a five-minute process for supporters to undertake either online, over the phone or in person at the Ticket Office. This will imminently become the only way fans can purchase a match day ticket therefore as a club, we encourage all fans to set aside a few minutes to become an Official Club Member.”
Official Membership will mark you as part of the Bolton Wanderers family via a membership number and an online account. This will store your most up to date information and ticket purchasing history.
