Bolton Wanderers Hosted Fans to Watch the Match


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic situation throughout the world, football matches are getting organized in spectator less stadiums. Thus the football fanatics are really sad but have nothing to do as there are high chances of infection in the crowded areas. In this situation, Bolton Wanderers had decided to invite their fans to watch the match streamed directly from the stadium. Not only the Bolton Wanderers, but some other clubs also have experimented on the thing that if they can stream their matches directly from the venues to the bars of the hotels.

This new idea has seen success as lots of fans love to have drinks while watching the games. They have to book their table in the bars and they will get their drinks and snacks until the match ends. For the booking purpose, the clubs have circulated a phone number. The fans have to call the number and get confirmation of the booking of the table. The cost of this entertainment package is also not very high as they will have to spend only 25 pounds per head. The bars will permit not more than 6 people per table and one family in each. The gates of the bars will open at 5:15 p.m. and the matches will start from 7 p.m.

The initiative was actually successful during the match day as lots of fans came to witness the match between Cambridge United and Bolton Wanderers. The match ended with a 1 all draw as the Bolton Wanderers performed exceptionally better than they were expected to do. They could have won the game but a goal from Harry Brockbank was denied as the linesman indicated it as an offside move, though in replays it was clearly seen that the goal was fair and just.
