4 reviews of The Reebok Stadium in English
It's a very nice stadium and to watch a football match as an away supporter for £15 is a real bargain considering that it is the Premier League and there are more expensive tickets in the leagues below, but the one thing I didn't like was that I like lager with a dash of lemonade at the bottom, but the bar staff refused this stating that I would have to buy a pint of lager and the lemonade separate. Is it not to difficult just to put a splash of lemonade at the bottom and fill the rest of the plastic glass with lemonade? after all isn't the customer meant to be right?
The staff serving behind the counter seemed pretty clueless!
The stadium is ideal for public transport users as the stadium is situated right near Horwich Parkway BR Station.
There really isn't anything not to like about the Reebok Stadium. It's wonderfully accessible being just off the motorway. The roads leading to it are wide and well signposted and within the space of a few minutes of leaving the motorway you're in the car park and walking to the stadium. I've been to several matches there and always had a great time. I like the size of the stadium and it has a friendly feel about it, I wouldn't hesitate in taking anyone there to watch a match. I've been to two other Premiership team stadiums, Anfield and Ewood Park, and I prefer the Reebok to either of those. All in all it's a modern stadium with good facilities and seating and a great venue to go and experience a Premiership football match.
I'm a Bolton Wanderers fan, so feel free to completely dismiss these ramblings as utter whimsical fanboydery (apart from the self-deprecating bits and world-weariness).
Yessir, The Reebok Stadium is the home of my beloved Bolton Wanderers and, as new stadiums go, the facilities are pretty good. It's very easy to get to for the travelling fan and there's enough pubs in the area for a football to get drunk in.
That said, regardless of the weather, be warned - somehow, the people who designed the ground managed to create a pocket of the West Pennine Moors that has its own microclimate which equates into a biting, whipping wind that envelopes the outside of the stadium, leaving you walking from potentially glorious, sweltering sunshine, to sub-zero in no time at all. Mercifully, when you get inside the ground, the wind vanishes.
It's located next to the Middlebrook retail park - make of that what you will. Personally, I find it a bit soulless, but do appreciate the fact that I can buy everything I need for matchday within a 5 minute walk.
There's also loads of events that go on at the ground (from vintage fairs, weddings, gigs and more) as well as the built-on De Vere Whites hotel.
It's hardly a traditional ground, but anyone yearning for the days when football stadiums smelled of urine, fag-ends and surrounded by potential fire hazards, then you want your head testing.
A great stadium for both football matches and other events.
I’ve been to a couple of games at The Reebok -- both European matches, as it happens (how many other UK football followers can claim to have seen the mighty Bulgarian giants Locomotiv Plovdiv play live?!) -- and I’ve been impressed with the facilities.
Our seats for the match were comfortable, and bearing in mind the size of the stadium I was pleasantly surprised by how good our view was; we were able to see everything that went on except, perhaps, for the very far end of the pitch.
Away from the match the food outlets, shop and other facilities all seemed excellent, and the stewards were helpful too.
The stadium is used for other events too, and is an excellent resource for the people who live here. All in all, a great facility.
