Bolton Wanderers were delighted to welcome a superb crowd of over 19,000 for another fantastic Family Day at the University of Bolton Stadium.
With ticket prices reduced to just £10 for adults and £5 for under 18s and over 65s for the Easter Monday fixture against Accrington Stanley, Wanderers’ fans of all ages again turned out in force to generate a wonderful atmosphere and celebrate a superb 3-1 win for Ian Evatt’s in-form side.
It was the second designated Family Day fixture of the season staged by the club, with Wanderers aiming to make the fixture as accessible as possible to the entire Bolton community.
In addition, the club’s official charity, Bolton Wanderers in the Community, distributed free match-day tickets to some of the disadvantaged communities it works with and hosted the first Bolton Unity Festival in the Premier Suite before kick-off.
The event was organised by an alliance of six partner organisations, including Bolton Wanderers in the Community, to bring together different faiths and cultural groups to celebrate unity and diversity across Bolton.
An overwhelming success, around 2,000 people attended the festival to visit over 60 stalls, try out international cuisines, watch dance and music performances and take part in various games and activities.
The club was proud to host such a diverse range of communities from different faiths and cultures at the stadium and, through BWitC’s free ticket scheme, welcome so many people to their very first fixture at Bolton Wanderers.
Initiatives of this kind form an important part of what Bolton Wanderers is all about and the club looks forward to delivering more of the same next season.
Wanderers would like to thank everyone who supported both events on Easter Monday and made it another memorable day for the club.
A reminder that season tickets for the 2022/23 campaign are available now and can be purchased here.
