Bolton Wanderers Online Ticket Office FAQ’s
Managing your account
Everyone who purchases a ticket for a Bolton Wanderers fixture or registers on our database is allocated an individual Client Reference Number (CRN). Each home and away fixture has a priority sales period for current season ticket holders and/or club members. In order to be able to purchase tickets during a priority sales period, it is essential to log in to the account associated with your season ticket or membership. Creating new accounts will not allow a priority ticket entitlement to be allocated.
