After much debate amongst supporters, Bolton have confirmed upper tiers at Macron Stadium will remain open for the 2016/17 campaign.

With decreasing crowds and the success of the recent legends match, there had been calls to close upper tiers on matchdays in order to help boost atmosphere by seating fans closer together and reducing gaps in lower tiers.

After weighing up the volume of season ticket sales for the new campaign, Wanderers have come to a decision that will see seating arrangements remain unaffected.

An official statement, posted at bwfc.co.uk, read: "Bolton Wanderers Football Club can confirm that all seating areas of Macron Stadium will remain open for all home league fixtures during the 2016/17 season.

"The club does not underestimate how important season ticket seats are to our supporters in all areas of Macron Stadium. The club remains committed to retaining as many season ticket holders as possible for the 2016/17 campaign.

"Supporters should be aware that the club's matchday ticketing sales efforts will be focussed on trying to fill the lowers tiers to create the best atmosphere possible in the stadium.

"In addition, the club can also confirm that the annual Select Your Seat day will take place on Sunday 3 July for season ticket holders wishing to relocate their seats. This day of exclusivity will be for those supporters who purchase their season tickets by 30 June.

"This will allow upper tier season ticket holders who have renewed, the opportunity to relocate to the lower tier if they wish."
