TICKET sales for Saturday’s League One clash with Coventry City have been suspended.

Wanderers have assured supporters that the game will go ahead, and that an update will be provided as quickly as possible.

Prices, announced yesterday, caused consternation among supporters who turned out in force for last weekend’s game at Wycombe.

It is understood the Football Ventures consortium were ready to fund the game and after examining the costs which would be incurred came up with a pricing strategy which divided fans’ opinions.

Adult ticket prices were set at £24 with Under-23s and Over-65s charged £18 and Under-18s £12.

No season tickets have been sold this summer, and with no pay-on-the-day for home or away fans, all tickets must be bought in advance of the game.

A club statement read: “Please be assured Saturday’s Sky Bet League One game against Coventry City is going ahead. Due to very recent developments we have decided to suspend ticket sales programmed for 9am this morning and will be updating this status as soon as possible.”

The Bolton Wanderers Supporters’ Trust had their say last night, appealing for prices to be reduced.

“Further to the announcement on the club website this afternoon, the BWFCST is appalled at the pricing of tickets for this coming Saturday's first home game of the season,” read a statement from the board.

“We are therefore issuing an immediate plea for you to reconsider the pricing structure as a matter of urgency before ticket sales commence at 9.00am tomorrow morning.

“We join with other BWFC fans groups in registering our dismay at this treatment of not only the BWFC fans, but also the visiting Coventry City supporters.

“The patience and loyalty of our club's amazing supporters, on show for all to see at Wycombe last Saturday, is being tested and disrespected yet again.

“Circumstances do alter cases and in the ongoing distressed situation at our club, we would ask that you reconsider pricing. Surely a maximum level not exceeding £20 for full price ticketing would encourage the support in numbers that the name of Bolton Wanderers deserves?

“We would also ask you to reconsider allowing sales on the day and we are at a loss to understand why this facility is being denied to supporters.

“We hope that you will reconsider and treat the supporters of both clubs with more respect than is currently on show.”
