TOGETHER - EQUALITY. DIVERSITY. RESPECT.
Wigan Athletic Football Club, Wigan Athletic Community Trust and the DW Stadium's Together programme aims to improve what we do and how we do it, with a particular focus on equality and diversity.
The programme sees the Football Club, Community Trust and DW Stadium work together as one organisation to share the good practices we have in place while also seeking to improve upon these.
As part of this and building upon our achievements of receiving the Premier League Equality Standard - Preliminary level and Premier League Equality Standard - Intermediate Level, we are now working towards achieving the Premier League Equality Standard - Advanced level.
We became the first EFL club to receive the Intermediate Level and were described by Roisin Wood, Chief Executive of Kick It Out, as a 'leading light in advancing equality practices through their football club' when she presented Latics Chief Executive Jonathan Jackson with the award.
If any supporter witnesses any form of discriminatory behaviour within the stadium please report it to the nearest steward or text WIGAN to 80800, our incident reporting line, providing details of the stand name, row number, seat number and description of the offender and incident.
Alternatively, Kick It Out have released a reporting app, providing users with the ability to attach video, photo and audio evidence to complaints to help support investigations into discriminatory abuse and behaviour across football.
