Accessibility Information

Getting There & Parking


Both Home and Away car parks have spaces reserved for disabled supporters. These are issued on a first come first served basis and charged at £7 per car. Drop off points for home supporters are at the front of the stadium and away supporters can be dropped off at the visitor’s car park. 

Accessible travel is available for disabled supporters to away games. 


National Rail have published links to the nearest stations to sporting venues including Bolton Wanderers see here for more information.


Level Playing Field have not verified the information given and we suggest that you contact the station direct if you have any access requirements.

Getting a Ticket


For information on purchasing a ticket please visit the Bolton Wanderers website.


Bolton Wanderers tickets can be collected on match day inside Bolton Central if they haven't been posted earlier, rather than at the general card collection windows. A mini-com and a loop system are situated in Bolton Central also. 


Tickets can be purchased in person from Bolton Central at the Macron Stadium

Tickets can also be purchased using the Ticket Office Hotline number 0844 871 2932; by fax 08448 712931 (include ticket requirements, payment details and a contact telephone number); or by post (include payment and a stamped addressed envelope).

Spectator Viewing areas


Home supporters have 48 spaces for wheelchair users available to them. 10 spaces for wheelchair users can be found in the away section for away supporters.


Tickets for disabled supporters are available in both the North Stand Lower and the West Stand Lower tier. It is also possible to watch the matches behind glass in the Duke of Lancaster's Regiment Suite, situated on Level 2 of the stadium, in between the North and East stand. 


NB: Under existing minimum standards for accessible stadia, the club should have 174 wheelchair spaces. 75% of these should be elevated positions and the remaining 25% pitchside.


LPF's view is that many disabled supporters should be able to access general seating areas and only those with specific needs eg those who require extra legroom, or access via aisle seats or who need step free access etc should be allocated seats in the dedicated areas.


Based on the above, the club therefore only meets 33% of the guidance and has a shortfall of 116 wheelchair spaces. They should be working on a plan to rectify this deficit within a reasonable timeframe under the auspices of a full independent Access Audit.

Match: Wolves

Attended match with a group of ambulant disabled supporters with learning disability and one with limited mobility and their helpers. We were allowed through accesssable entrance and led to sit on front row behind wheelchair spaces.The view was good.  There were no facilities to obtain food or drinks without climbing up steps. Accessable toitet was full of rusting chairs!

Disabled parking available, but only one accessible toilet for away fans - bit of a queue at half time.


Main problem was the view - stewards and even police were blocking the view of the pitch. Most ignored the fans who asked them to move, those that did move out of the way were immediately replaced by another steward!

As I am ambulant( disabled), we were able to park further away from the ground (Lostock Industrial estate for £3) and walk in, this made for a quick get away after the match.


Access to the stadium was a stewarded gate on one level.


Although we had to sit on metal chairs at ground level to the pitch, it wasn't a bad veiw.


The Police and stewards only stood in front of us when goals were scored and soon moved when the game restarted, the stewards were friendly and approachable, it was a good game and finished 3-3 we had an enjoyable day.

As a carer of a wheelcair user who was an away fan at this match, I was disappointed to be given a wet plastic chair to sit on.


Impossible to have an unobstructed view of the pitch if wheelchair user or if sitting down. Several club officials, stewards, police all parading up and down or standing right in front of the goal!
