He became chairman of Wanderers in October 1999 at the same time Sam Allardyce was appointed as manager. While Gartside was chairman, the club gained promotion to the Premier League and reached the UEFA Cup for the first time in their history. He was unable to hold on to Sam Allardyce, allowing him to resign (only to be appointed manager of Newcastle United weeks later). Bolton were relegated to the Championship in 2012.

On 23 April 2009, Gartside proposed a plan to his fellow Premier League chairmen about splitting the Premier League into two divisions of eighteen teams in each and allowing Scottish Premier League clubs Celtic and Rangers to join. UEFA have said they will not veto the proposed move.


In early December 2015 it was reported that he was gravely ill and his family requested privacy. He died on 10 February 2016 at his home in Cheshire at the age of 63.
