Bolton Wanderers have agreed a tie-up with green utilities firm, Yü Energy.

Fans of the super whites will soon be able to use electric vehicle charging points at the University of Bolton Stadium in the first of several environmentally conscious schemes at the club.

Nottingham-based Yü have also agreed to sponsor the back of the players’ shirts until the end of the 2020/21 season, and their name was seen on kits for the first time at the end of January, where the team drew 1-1 against Bristol Rovers.

Wanderers were placed into administration last May after racking up more than £25million in debts to unsecured creditors. Yü, who had supplied the club with gas and electricity since 2017, were one of the largest at just over £521,000.

Following the takeover from Football Ventures in August an agreement was quickly reached. Wanderers CEO Emma Beaugeard was delighted to announce the deal officially.

She said: “We were impressed with how Yü Energy worked with us to quickly find a positive solution to our utility needs.

“We’re looking forward to the enhancement of our facilities with the addition of electric vehicle charging that will boost our sustainability.

“We are delighted to welcome Yü Energy as our new back of shirt sponsor, and we look forward to working closely with the team at Yü to further develop our partnership.”

Yü Energy CEO Bobby Kalar also welcomed the deal.

“We are absolutely delighted to announce this new partnership with Bolton Wanderers FC,” he said. “It’s an honour for Yü Energy to be powering the University of Bolton Stadium and continuing our partnership with such a historic football club.

“We recognise the vital role the Club plays in the local community. We have worked hard with the team at Bolton and utilised our robust internal financial controls to find a win-win commercial solution that would allow the club to rebuild and continue to flourish.

“Our partnership will allow Bolton to continue to benefit from our unique multi-utility offering, with the convenience of bringing together the gas, electricity and water supply as well as enhancing the stadium with EV charge-points.”
