Bolton Chairman Confirms Discounted Ticketing Offers

Following some much publicised criticism of ticket prices from Bolton supporters, Ken Anderson has revealed discounts are on the way.

Unhappy with average crowds in the region of 14,000, the Wanderers chairman recently hit out at stayaways who have stopped attending games since the club's 2012 relegation from the Premier League, urging them to reconsider and pay a visit to the University of Bolton Stadium.

Just 15,461 made it through the turnstiles for Saturday's televised derby fixture with Blackburn Rovers - with tickets in certain areas priced at £36 - and Anderson says cheaper prices are on the way, but only by piggybacking a season ticket holder for reduced rates.

"One of the common themes was about the price of match tickets and I'm pleased to say that we have fully taken these points on board," Anderson told bwfc.co.uk.

"The club has discussed a range of initiatives which we believe will make the opportunity of watching Bolton Wanderers more affordable for certain matches whilst also not adversely impacting the value of those who purchased season tickets before the current campaign got underway.

"For the Swansea City game on Saturday 10 November, all season ticket holders will be able to purchase up to four additional tickets for the match, at a discounted price of £10 per ticket. Tickets for this fixture will go on sale on Monday 15 October at 9am and more details will be announced later this week. We hope that many of our loyal season ticket holders take advantage of this offer and bring their family, friends and colleagues to help boost the attendance and atmosphere.

"Half season tickets, which will commence on Boxing Day for our fixture with Rotherham United, will go on sale next week and those who sign up for them will benefit from some incredible savings as opposed to buying tickets on a match-by-match basis.

"Prices will be confirmed on the club's website in the coming days and those who commit to a half season ticket early, will also be able to benefit from the season ticket holder offer for the Swansea City game as mentioned above.

"To further strengthen the benefit of being a season ticket holder, we will also be introducing a 'bring a friend for free' offer for a home game in the New Year. Again, this will be an opportunity for a Wanderers season ticket holder to bring a close associate with them at no extra charge. This offer will also be extended to those who purchase a half season ticket.

"Our Community Fixture for this season will be the Ipswich Town game on Saturday 6 April and in conjunction with the Bolton Wanderers Community Trust and their partners, Bolton At Home, we will be donating 1,500 tickets for this match to the local community. Further to this, I am delighted to confirm that we will be returning with our 'Community Fiver' pricing policy whereby all tickets for this match will be priced at £5.00. I really hope that the game will be sold out and that the University of Bolton Stadium will be greeted by a very special atmosphere.

"Please stay tuned to the club's communications channels, where all the information will be available in due course."
