Bolton Wanderers F.C. was founded in 1874. Originally known as Christ Church Football Club, the Bolton Wanderers name was adopted in 1877, and was inspired by the fact that the team experienced some difficulty in finding a permanent place to call its home during its first few years.
Also known as The Trotters, The Wanderers and The Whites, Bolton Wanderers currently play in the English Football League (EFL) Championship, but have also spent several seasons playing in the top tier, much to the delight of fans who were able to enjoy watching top-level Bolton Wanderers TV games.

Bolton Wanderers have been playing at the University of Bolton Stadium since it opened (as the Reebok Stadium) in 1997. The venue was also known as the Macron Stadium between from 2014 until 2018. The team had played at multiple stadiums earlier in its history, with its longest stay of 104 years being at Burnden Park.
