Bolton Wanderers fanzone open to the public

Bolton Wanderers will unveil a new Fan Zone on Saturday. This creates space for his 1,000 supporters on match days and offers a variety of attractions.

The Fan Zone, located outside the West Stand near the Nat Lofthouse Statue, will be where Wanderers supporters will meet in a “friendly and relaxed environment” before and after games.

You can also get snacks and drinks.

With a capacity of 1,000, the outdoor space opens from noon to 3pm, three hours before kickoff, and one hour after the final whistle on Saturdays from 5pm to 6pm.

The facility will be operational for the first time outside the University of Bolton Stadium on Saturday for the match against Wycombe Wanderers.

For weekday matches, the Fan Zone opens at 5:00 PM and closes at 7:45 PM, when matches begin.

The Funzone features a new bar named in honor of legendary Wanderers commentator Dave Higson. He made his mark on Whites history.

The Dave Higson Bar is stocked with Staropramen Lager, Atlantic Pale Ale, Madori, and Carling, and serves local draft beers from Horwich’s Black Edge Brewery.

Additionally, fans can sample a range of delicious local delicacies such as Nam Ploy Thai Street Food, Sushma’Snacks Indian Street Food, Fratelli’s Pizza and The Cakery, all of which will be permanently located in the Fun Zone.

Carrs Pasties are available for purchase at the Dave Higson Bar counter.

Fans will be entertained during their stay by Bolton FM, who will work with the club to provide live music from the artists, and community Bolton Wanderers will operate an inflatable football dartboard for the Junior Whites.

The Fanzone is an ongoing project and will continue to be enhanced over the coming months.

Beginning with the Sheffield Wednesday fixture on Saturday 20th August, prosecco and gin bars, ice cream and cotton candy vendors will also be set up, as well as an official Bolton Wanderers merchandise shop.

Bolton Wanderers CEO Neil Hart said:

“This is almost a year-long project and I would like to thank our internal team for making sure the space is ready for this Saturday.

“I would also like to thank our funding partners, including Official Sponsors, Leasing Options, Bolton Wanderers Development Association and Bolton Wanderers Supporters Trust, for making this possible for our fans.

“Talks began last summer between the club and the Bolton Wanderers Supporters Trust about the feasibility of a fanzone. We have been in close consultation with them.”

“We encourage all supporters visiting the stadium in the coming months to visit the Fanzone and enjoy the experience.”

The Premier League match between Fulham and Liverpool will also be broadcast live on Saturday at 12:30pm in the Fanzone.

The club anticipates high numbers and, where appropriate, will activate a one-in-one-out policy should areas reach capacity.

Clearly mark entrances and exits to avoid congestion.
