A rally campaigning for a referendum on 'net zero' that was set to be held at Bolton Wanderers' stadium has been cancelled by the club.

The Nigel Farage fronted 'Vote Power Not Poverty' event was set to be held at the University of Bolton Stadium later this month. The campaign's official website describes it as "a cross party, grassroots campaign made up of activists from different parties and from none."

It continues: "Our aim is simple. We are demanding a referendum on the life-changing Net Zero plans forced upon us by Westminster politicians. We want the British people to have a say, both on our energy future and on Britain’s energy security."

Responding to tweet by @PowerNotPoverty, a number of the club's fans voiced their discontent at the ground being used as a venue.

@BurndenWay wrote: "Deeply, deeply, deeply unhappy about this."

@RodIrelandPhoto tweeted: "In a Europe at such trouble with itself please do not facilitate an event that could be divisive, antagonistic and providing succour to ideologies that are way off the mark of what the #bwfc family are about. Nothing good will come of such an event at our home."

@JakeBWFC_ added: "Get this cancelled."

This morning (August 8) Bolton Wanderers confirmed that the event, which was selling VIP tickets for £100 and was also set to feature Reform UK leader Richard Tice and political commentator Dominique Samuels, had been cancelled. Bolton Wanderers also moved to distance itself from the event.

A club spokesman said: "A 'Vote Power Not Poverty' Rally scheduled for later this month at the Bolton Whites Hotel will not be happening. The event has been cancelled by BWFC and is not something the club and business wishes to be associated with."

On its website, Vote Power Not Poverty warned those buying tickets that the venue for the Bolton event could be subject to change.
