BWitC Tackle Betting In Bolton

Bolton Wanderers in the Community - Betting

Bolton Wanderers in the Community are recruiting likeminded men for a new 8-week programme for football fans who would like to learn how to change their relationship with betting.

The Football Fans and Betting (FFAB) programme strives to increase knowledge of the betting industry and the tactics they use to keep people spending. The programme aims to give attendees new skills and techniques to help manage their betting better.

Bolton Wanderers in the Community will run a 90-minute group session each week at the Toughsheet Community Stadium. Each session will provide information and discussion on betting with other participants, who will also get a chance to do some exercise with the group, if chosen to.

Bolton Wanderers Chairman Sharon Brittan said: “In 2021, we made the decision to close the on-site betting facilities at the Toughsheet Community Stadium and committed to not enter into any new commercial partnerships or sponsorships with firms representing the gambling industry.

“Gambling addiction can have a devastating effect on individuals and their families and communities, and that’s why Bolton Wanderers Football Club and, along with Bolton Wanderers in the Community, we will continue to be a driving force in supporting the health and well-being of all the residents of our town.”

If you are aged between 18 and 55 and would like to get involved in FFAB or find out more about it, please follow this link.

Once you have registered and confirmed your interest/eligibility to take part, you will be invited to a FFAB information session at the Toughsheet Community Stadium on the 5th October, where you will be introduced to the team and how the sessions will work.

Places on FFAB are completely free of charge, but they are strictly limited, so do get in touch via the link provided or contact Jack Barnes at

The closing date for applications is Friday 29th September 2023.
