Aston Villa’s re-arranged fixture with Bolton Wanderers, scheduled to take place this coming Tuesday has been postponed due to the tragic event involving former England U-21 star Fabrice Muamba.

A statement was released a little while ago on the official website:

The thoughts and prayers of Aston Villa Football Club are with Fabrice Muamba and his family.

Our thoughts also extend to his teammates, the management staff and all at Bolton Wanderers Football Club at this terrible time.

The Club, without hesitation, has agreed to Bolton’s request to postpone our Barclays Premier League game scheduled for Tuesday at Villa Park.

We also wish to thank our supporters for their expressions of sympathy and support for the Muamba family and all at Bolton Wanderers.

Avillafan would also like to send our condolences to Fabrice, his family and everyone connected with Bolton Football Club. Our thoughts and wishes are with them all, in particular Fabrice Muamba.


  1. A correct decision as at sad times like this football does not matter.
    My thoughts and prayers are with Fabrice and his family.
