- An outstanding football freestyler showing his skills from 1.30 outside the stadium.

- The Wigan Youth Zone Brass Band will perform classic hits and songs Wigan style.
- A spectacular Free-running Acrobatics display by Wigan Youth Zone will provide something never before witnessed at the DW.
- At half-time, there will be a debut DW performance by 14 year old singing sensation OWEN BOLTON – and a big Latics fan to boot.
There will also be face painters around the ground to make sure everyone has their colours on show!
SPORTING MEMORIES NETWORK AWARENESS
The Fulham game has also been designated as Sporting Memories Network Awareness Day, the charity to raise awareness of Dementia.
In order to promote the charity, Latics fans will be asked to share their favourite memories on camera and the footage will be used within the borough to support older people living in the community with dementia – with a signed first team shirt on offer in a special Spot The Ball competition.
Supporters are being encouraged to send in their memories on Twitter using #wafcMemories and by email to firstname.lastname@example.org to be featured in the matchday programme on the day.
Tickets for this fantastic day are priced at £20 for adults and £5 for Under 18’s and over 65’s. To buy your tickets, call 0871 66 33 552, head to www.wiganathletic.com/tickets or visit the ticket office in person.
