Fans of West Bromwich Albion are threatening to boycott January’s game at the University of Bolton Stadium over Wanderers’ ticket prices.

It has also been announced recently that the visit of West Brom has been rescheduled. The game will now be played on the evening of Monday, January 21, in order to be broadcast on Sky.

The potential boycott has gained traction on social media in recent days, with the Twitter group The Albion Fanatics leading the protest.

Their tweet below has amassed over 1,500 likes so far.

So why would fans of both clubs feel the need to pay over the odds to sit in a cold stadium when they could just as easily watch the game from the comfort of their own home?

What do the fans think?

There have been complaints all season long over Bolton’s top category ticket prices which see adults paying at least £32 for the privilege of watching Bolton against some of the bigger championship sides and their local rivals.

However, it isn’t just away fans who have been concerned with the cost of visiting Bolton this season.

Wanderers came under fire earlier in December, ahead of the derby clash with Wigan, whose fans were also disgruntled at the ticket prices.

With so many fans on both sides taking issue with the ticket prices, it’ll be interesting to see what the club does, if anything, to appease fans’ concerns.
