Confusion over Coventry City's match at Bolton ends as tickets released

ELEVENTH-HOUR confusion over Coventry City’s league match at Bolton Wanderers tomorrow has ended today with belated confirmation of ticket availability – leaving many fans frustrated.

The Lancashire club is in turmoil off the pitch and suspended ticketing arrangements earlier this week, while insisting the League One match would still go ahead.

Bolton have been in administration since May. There have been attempts this week to finalise a takeover, which fell through yesterday.

Wanderers were set to be taken over by Football Ventures before English businessman Laurence Bassini, who in April attempted to buy the club, was granted a court order to block the sale.

A statement from the club reads: “Tickets for Saturday’s Sky Bet League One game against Coventry City are now on sale – but supporters are advised that there will be no sales available on the day.

“The club would like to apologise to supporters of both clubs for the delay and inconvenience caused.

“Tickets will be priced at £20 for adults and £10 for all concessions.

“Please note that only the lower tiers of the University of Bolton Stadium will be open.

“Supporters are being strongly advised to book their tickets online by visiting www.eticketing.co.uk/bwfc and to use the Print At Home function which will facilitate with queues at the collection windows on match day.”
