'Superb support': Bolton Wanderers to honour Armed Forces with reduced price Poppy Appeal entry

| By Maddie Laing

Bolton Wanderers have announced a brand new ticket price for people who are serving Armed Forces personnel and Veterans.

To coincide with the Poppy Appeal Fixture against Port Vale on Saturday October 29, tickets will be available for just £10.

To receive discounted tickets at Macron Stadium, Serving Personnel and Veterans must show their MOD 90 card or Veteran Badge at shop tills in Bolton Central pre-match and from Ticket Hall on match day from 9am.

Serving Personnel and Veterans who are already season ticket holders can still purchase an additional ticket for £10 for a family member or friend.

Bolton Wanderers were delighted to seize the opportunity to say thank-you to our serving men and women, past and present.

Major George Briscoe MBE, of the Duke of Lancaster’s Regiment, said: “Bolton Wanderers have been superb in their continued support to serving soldiers and veterans.

“It is to their credit that the club continues to support all Military Personnel and Veterans.”

The club has strong ties with The Duke of Lancaster’s Regiment which culminated in the renaming of the former BT Suite to The Duke of Lancaster’s Regiment Suite.

Major Briscoe said: “This is testament to their superb support.”

Phil Mason, Head of the Bolton Wanderers Community Trust, added: “Bolton Wanderers community Trust has also entered into a partnership with the Royal British Legion in a new ‘Friends of the Forces’ programme.

“This initiative will see work with ex-servicemen and women will encourage the beneficiaries to participate in existing BWCT schemes.”
