Update | Game Called Off Due To Crowd Emergency

Stadium Cheltenham matchday

Wanderers’ League One fixture at home to Cheltenham Town this afternoon was called off following a medical emergency in the crowd.

A supporter in the East Stand suffered a suspected cardiac arrest around 30 minutes into the game at the Toughsheet Community Stadium.

The man was treated by medical staff and paramedics at the scene, while the two teams were taken off the pitch.

Following sustained attempts to revive the patient, he was taken to the first-aid room at the stadium and the match was abandoned shortly after 4pm.

The supporter was subsequently taken to hospital and the thoughts of everyone at Bolton Wanderers are with him and his family and all those impacted by this distressing incident.

An update on the supporter’s condition will follow.

Details regarding a new date and ticket refunds/arrangements for the fixture will be released in due course.
