Football Curling is the brand new Wigan Athletic half time challenge, making its debut against Ipswich Town.

  • Football Curling debut tonight against Ipswich Town
  • Prizes include Champagne Lounge passes and Wigan Athletic merchandise
  • Junior and adult competitors selected in Team Latics Hub before kick off 

A new half time challenge, Football Curling, is being introduced at the game tonight against Ipswich Town, with a new range of prizes available for winning Wigan Athletic fans.

Competitors will have to try to kick and land a football onto a newly designed mat in the Wigan Athletic colours, with the central crest being the main target.

Four junior participants will be selected prior to the game in the Team Latics Hub and they will then have the opportunity to bring an adult with them onto the pitch to take part in the challenge.

All junior fans who are selected will receive a prize for taking part; the competitor who lands on or gets closest to the centre will also win a Wigan Athletic scarf.

For the adults challenge, two tickets to the Champagne Lounge are on offer to any competitor who can land their ball directly on the central crest! If no competitors land on the crest, a Wigan Athletic scarf will be awarded to whoever lands closest to the centre.

To be selected, the Team Latics members will take part in a competition to score through the Phoenix and Blue goalposts in the Hub, with successful participants then being entered into a draw to select the four members who will take part in the half time challenge on the pitch.

Two distances will be set up, with the adults kicking from further away than the junior contestants.

The game will take place as normal in the South East corner at half time.

For your chance to take part in the competition, make sure to bring your Team Latics members down to the Hub in the lead up to kick off. The Hub will open as usual an hour and a half before the match, with free entry for all Team Latics members.
