One Bolton Match day

Bolton Council has teamed up with Bolton Wanderers Football Club to organise a One Bolton Match Day.

The One Bolton match day will bring young people, families and diverse communities together to watch Bolton Wanderers play West Ham United on Saturday, April 9 at the Reebok stadium.

One Bolton is about celebrating the strength of Bolton's diversity and the community coming together to ensure Bolton continues to be a great place to live and work.

Local schools, community groups, businesses and other One Bolton partners will receive complimentary tickets to attend the game, whilst others who want to attend can benefit from special One Bolton discounted tickets.

Leader of Bolton Council, Councillor Cliff Morris, said: “Since One Bolton was introduced last summer, momentum has really grown. The One Bolton match day will be a great opportunity to celebrate community spirit and the diversity of our town. It’s great that the Wanderers are continuing to show such support for One Bolton. They already had a great result reaching the semi finals of the FA Cup and I hope the day’s community spirit will spur the team to another victory.”

Manager of Bolton Wanderers, Owen Coyle, added: “On behalf of everyone at the football club I would like to say that we are delighted to be involved in One Bolton Match Day. One Bolton shows all that is good about our town and our community, our great strength and just what we can achieve together.”

To celebrate the One Bolton Match Day, Bolton Wanderers have significantly reduced prices for this fixture, with tickets available in all areas of the stadium from only £15 for adults, £10 for concessions and £5 for under 18s. For further information or for bookings, please call Bolton Central on 0844 871 2932. Groups of 10 or more can enjoy further fantastic savings with tickets available anywhere in the stadium at only £10 for adults and £5 for concessions.

Another event coming soon is the One Bolton 5k run on Sunday, May 8 which has been organised in partnership with The Co-operative Membership, Bolton Wanderers’ Community Trust and Active Synergy, a social enterprise who deliver sporting events across the North West.

Participants of all ages and all fitness levels are encouraged to get involved in supporting their chosen charity as well as supporting Bolton as a whole.

Up to 1500 people can enter to run, jog or walk five kilometres to raise funds for a charity of their choice, or alternatively people can take part in a 2012 metre fun, inspired by the 2012 Olympics.
