Getting There & Parking


There are 100 car parking spaces for Home and Away 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. 


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.



Away Travel


Accessible travel is available for disabled supporters to away games, with companion tickets charged at full price.

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. 


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. 


There are 158 'Easy Access and Amenity' seats avilable for ambulant disabeled fans.


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. 

Accessible amenities


There are 2 accessible toilets located within the stadium, located through the corner tunnels.

Accessible services & information


Match Commentary is available via an audio loop for up to 25 blind and partially sighted fans at the ground. Headsets can be requested in advance of the fixture or by requesting one from a steward once inside the stadium. These can only be accessed in the North and South stand lower tiers.

Stewards can provide assistance helping you in and out of the stadium, purchasing refreshments, safe evacuation and escorting to and from the toilets and kiosks. A PA ticket can be provided on request.

Been to Bolton lots of times, always looked after very well. Wheelchair users are behind the goal at pitch level, got to keep your wits about you when teams are warming up and throughout the game as we are sitting ducks for the ball. The one and only toilet is on a slope hard to get in if you have a manual wheelchair, the toilet is a disgrace, mucky and cobwebs, looks like it's not been cleaned, painted in years, no handtowels either that was before the game.

Match: Bolton v Middlesborough

Published: 10/9/2017


Yesterday I attended the Macron stadium with my parents to watch Middlesborough away at Bolton, I am a wheelchair user, but our original seats meant I would have to leave my wheelchair at the bottom of the south stand and climb up the steps to get to my seat. However a female steward at the south stand let me stay in my wheelchair at the bottom of the stand with my parents.


This meant I had a great view of the game, especially in the second half when Middlesborough scored two goals, had I stayed in my original seat.I would not have be able to see the goals as I am a small person and the away fans would have been standing up.


I would like to say thank you to the stewards at the stadium for being accommodating  and letting me stay in my wheelchair.
