Exit plans

Due to the Matchroom Champion of Champions snooker taking place in the Premier Suite on Saturday evening there will be some changes to exit routes for fans leaving after the match.

Supporters exiting the Eventura Nat Lofthouse Stand (East Stand) will be required to turn left and exit towards the large car parks at the north of the stadium.

Supporters exiting from other parts of the stadium that need to get to Car Park A or the Bolton Stadium Hotel will need to consider these restrictions which will be in place for approximately 30 minutes after the final whistle.

Stewards will be present in the location to assist supporters and your cooperation is greatly appreciated in managing this measure that is in place for this fixture only.

Fan Zone

The Fan Zone, situated near the Nat Lofthouse statue, will be open for home supporters from midday with a fantastic variety of drink and food offerings available.

Supporters are encouraged to come down early and enjoy the Fan Zone experience.


Kiosks will also be open inside the stadium concourses with a wide range of food and beverage offers.

And White Horse Beer - to mark the centenary of Wanderers' FA Cup triumph of 1923 - will be available in the Bolton Stadium Hotel bar. 

Cashless stadium

Supporters are reminded that the University of Stadium is moving towards a cashless site.

All car parks, concourse kiosks, coffee carts and hospitality areas will now be accepting card payments only.

However, the Fan Zone, Club Store, Ticket Office, Bolton Stadium Hotel bars, programme selling points and Lottery sellers will continue to accept cash payments as required.

Golden Goal

Golden Goal will be on sale with the chance to win a major cash prize for a £1 ticket.

Tickets can be bought with cash in the Fan Zone, lower concourses, outside the club shop and in hospitality areas.

All monies raised are used by the Bolton Wanderers Development Association to fund projects throughout the club and community through the BWiTC.

Car Parking

An ANPR parking system is now in place at the stadium so please remember to pay for your parking.

We also encourage all supporters to use club car parks to reduce the impact on nearly residents.
