PRICE IS RIGHT FOR WIGAN ATHLETIC FANS

15 October 2014

Wigan Athletic continues to provide outstanding value for money – BBC Price of Football Survey.

  • Latics 3rd overall for best value in Championship.
  • Latics provide excellent value, according to BBC Price of Football survey.
  • Chief Executive Jonathan Jackson: 'Supporters come first.'
Wigan Athletic are delighted to have been ranked in the top three positions for value for money in The Championship  in the BBC’s Price of Football Survey – published today, Wednesday October 15 – proving that Latics supporters are getting a great deal when it comes to the cost of watching their football.

The BBC’s annual audit of 176 clubs in British football across 11 divisions in England and Wales, from the Premier League to the Conference, and the Women's Super League 1 and 2 - as well as the top four divisions in Scotland - covers everything from the price of a season ticket to match day tickets, replica shirts, match day programme - even the cost of a pie and a cup of tea.

Latics have been ranked 3rd lowest-priced on average from all the categories affecting the 24 Sky Bet Championship clubs.

Jonathan Jackson, Wigan Athletic Chief Executive, says it reflects the continued value that Latics supporters are able to enjoy at the DW Stadium. “We always try to put the supporters first,” he said, “and it is great news that the statistics prove this to be the case once again.”

“It is a reflection of our strategy to make football affordable for everyone because we work very hard to keep our prices as competitive possible.

“The club is a business that must be run on a sustainable basis, which we have managed to achieve over the past few seasons under huge financial pressures, and we are delighted that the survey shows that we are still one of the best value places to watch football in the Football League.”
