The Bolton Wanderers Supporters’ Trust alongside the Bolton Wanderers Disabled Supporters’ Association have collaborated to introduce a new Accessibility Passport to matchdays at the Toughsheet Community Stadium.
With the full backing of the Club behind the initiative, the passport aims to assist disabled supporters when moving around the stadium.
And with the Club set to install a Changing Places facility and a ‘Quiet Room’ at the stadium over the coming weeks, the passport will also allow disabled supporters and their assistants freedom of access to these important facilities.
The new passport also includes a ‘How Can You Assist Me’ section which will offer the relevant information to stewards and Club personnel in order to effectively assist those who may, for example, have difficulty with steps or standing for long periods of time, visually impaired or non-verbal supporters and supporters with sensory difficulties.
Neil Hart, Chief Executive Officer at Bolton Wanderers said: “We are in absolute support of this important initiative and we hope the Accessibility Passport proves a usual tool for our disabled supporters.
“I’d like to extend my thanks to the Bolton Wanderers Disabled Supporters’ Association and the Bolton Wanderers Supporters’ Trust for all their work to make this happen.”
All 2023/24 season ticket holders who possess an Assistant ticket will automatically receive their Accessibility Passport along with their season ticket.
If any Official Club Member requires access to a passport for the new season, please contact the Ticket Office by email with your Client Reference Number included to email@example.com.
