Since opening its doors in 1997, The Reebok Stadium has seen its fair share of memorable moments.

Some of those moments will live long in the memories of Bolton Wanderers fans. From reaching the Premier League to qualifying for the UEFA Cup, Wanderers fans have seen it all.

There have also been some memorable and historic moments for the away teams at The Reebok. Who could forget Birmingham City surviving on the final day of the 2013/2014 season?

This Saturday Wolverhampton Wanderers head to Bolton, hoping to be crowned Championship winners. Sealing the title would be the cherry on top of what has already been a monumental season for Wolves.

Wolves need just one point to be crowned Champions.

They’re in good company. In twenty years, two sides have sealed Championships after games at The Reebok. Here’s a look at those two sides:

Chelsea - 2005

José Mourinho’s debut season in England was one to remember, having already won the League Cup earlier in the season after beating Liverpool 3-2. Chelsea travelled to The Reebok on 30th April 2005, knowing that a win would seal their first Premier League title. A Frank Lampard brace was enough for Chelsea to seal their first title win for fifty years. Wanderers would go on to finish sixth, qualifying for the UEFA Cup for the first time in the clubs’ history.


Leicester City - 2014

Just a year after their devastating Play-Off semi-final defeat to Watford FC, Leicester City were promoted to the Premier League as Champions. The title was sealed with two games to play, as Nigel Pearson’s side beat Wanderers 1-0 at The Reebok. Lloyd Dyer’s thunderbolt of a shot beat Adam Bogdan to ensure Leicester were celebrating a title win. Wanderers ended the season in 14th.

Will Wolves become the third side to be crowned Champions at Bolton? We’ll see on Saturday.
