Wanderers hope to screen live football as part of a new FanZone at the UniBol.

Early kick-offs and highlights of Bolton games will be shown in the outdoor facility, which is currently in the planning stage.

Subject to licensing approval, a large outdoor bar, marquee, seating area and mobile catering kiosks will be housed on the north and east corners of the ground.

The FanZone is being created in conjunction with Bolton Council and the Bolton Wanderers Supporters Trust, who have been working to install a permanent area for pre-match socialising for a few years.

“The full return of crowds to the UoB this season has been welcomed by all BWFC supporters,” a statement from the trust read.

“However, as evidenced by comments received from many supporters, the pre-match experience is currently missing something for a variety of reasons and establishing a permanent home for the fan zone has always been a priority for the Supporters’ Trust.

“This is why we are delighted to be now working in partnership with the club – and local council – to try and establish a fantastic and more permanent new space for fans to enjoy on every home match day.

“The proposals being worked on will, if approved, provide a home for all BWFC fans, with something for all ages to enhance the match-day experience.

“This is a rapidly developing scheme and shows that once a relationship has been established, supporters’ trusts can work with their clubs in a positive way that places fans’ needs to the fore.

“Supporters’ trusts aren’t just for the bad times and working in a positive partnership with the club has always been the aim of the BWFCST.”

Wanderers chief executive Neil Hart added: “We have been meeting regularly with the trust and this is one of the first projects the fans wanted to see happen.

“There has been a fan zone before and it’s something the supporters wanted to see come back.

“We have had plans drawn up, which we are discussing with Bolton Council and other key partners, and are actively working towards creating a first-class facility which will allow fans to enjoy their match-day experience even more.

“With fans coming back in fantastic numbers we want to reward that support with the best welcome and pre-match build-up we can.”

So it's a tent and a shipping container?

I thought the shipping container was poor.

On the plus side there are two tents. They've really pushed the boat out.

Isn’t that what most fan zones are though? Hanging around a car park under tents with a flat pint?

I'm assuming the cub scouts needed to erect the tents will be working voluntarily?

I must say, they've really gone to town on the graphics, for what is, as Lusty says,a couple of tents and a container.

Probably spent more money on the architect and graphics designer than on the actual "zone" itself.

"Exciting first look..."?

It’s about time they started selling decent alcoholic drinks instead of the usual piss of carling and Worthingtons bitter.

I once went camping with my older brother and his friends when I was about 14. I say camping, it was just a tent in Avenham Park.

It was pretty scary once it went dark, and my brother made me sleep across the entrance so I would be first to be taken by the inevitable monster or tiger that came along.

I haven't been in a tent since. I won't be starting here.

As in. It looks bollocks. 
Please let me design it.

What's wrong with just having it back indoors where it used to be? I only ever went in once because of the bitter cold but it seemed fine to me.
