Wigan ticket offer: Latics offer season ticket holders ‘fantastic’ gesture

Wigan Athletic are further away from returning to the glory days of Premier League football and FA Cup wins than they have ever been since relegation in 2013 and the club want to reward the fans who have stood by them in the lower leagues, despite setback after setback.

The club are currently in 13th place in League One and with nothing to play for across the final two games of the season, the club have made an offer to season ticket holders which will allow them to bring two guests to the final game of the season against Bristol Rovers for free.

The invitation has been labelled as the club's ‘dedicated Season Ticket Offer fixture' as they want as many as possible inside the DW Stadium on April 27 to see Shaun Maloney's team end the season before the summer break. Official members of the club's BELIEVE Fans Fund are also eligible to pick up two free tickets for the match.

Although Wigan won't be going back up to the Championship this season, they have played some good stuff under Shaun Maloney who is building a young, hungry team again. With a good summer, their fans could be looking forward to a promotion push next term.

Can the Wigan ticket offer secure another sell-out?

If enough season ticket holders and members claim the offer, then there is every chance that Wigan could play in front of a full house for the second time this season. In January, the club played Manchester United in the FA Cup third round in front of a packed house at the DW Stadium – their first sell out since their Premier League days.

Wigan, which has always been a Rugby League town, have seen dwindling average attendances at the DW Stadium in recent years. This season they have averaged just under 10,000 supporters per match at the stadium which holds 25,000 supporters.

Therefore, a sell-out for the final day would not only be a boost to the club but also a boost to the players and staff who may have felt at times they had lost the fans this season.
