Club in partnership with GameDay Xtra

  • New Live streaming service from Wigan Athletic events, starting with the 2015-16 launch on Friday 26 June.
  • Register for GameDay Xtra at
  • Latics first club to use GameDay Xtra.
The game has just changed forever. And Latics are leading the way, starting this Friday 26 June as the new 2015-16 kit is launched.

In a ground-breaking technological leap, the way you currently experience the game is about to be revolutionised.

In partnership with GameDay Xtra, we will be providing you with a brand new platform to bring together all your sport and lifestyle preferences in one online space – which will work alongside the club’s official website and social media platforms.

Think Facebook for sport fans but with dedicated content that you can add yourself.

You don’t have to leave GameDay Xtra to enjoy all the functions of your favourite websites and apps. It’s all here for you and you can personalise your own pages, because as we have said it’s all about you.

So, you have all your favourite Wigan Athletic pages up there but you can also put up your view of the match and opinions about players and other clubs, choose or refuse to receive news and views about cricket, boxing, F1, darts or any other of the global sports available on Game Day Xtra.

Fan of Frankie Dettori, Lewis Hamilton, Jessica Ennis-Hall or Floyd Mayweather? They can be all there for you.

Register your Sunday league team, local cycling or rugby club, school, college or business and get the same benefits as top level clubs. 

You’re now thinking, how much is this going to cost? 

Some more good news. It’s free.

So it’s probably is too good to be true… it’s not!

Latics are the first club in the world to partner with GameDay Xtra. This project has been in development for over three years to ensure a superb level of user experience and other major clubs are already signed-up but ours is the very first to launch it.

Brian Higgins and Perry Hughes, the founders of GameDay Xtra, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to partner Wigan Athletic and share this fantastic platform to enable fans to gain a richer match day experience, engage socially with other fans and get closer to their favourite sport, team or sport star. It’s the future but it’s here today.”

Ian Laithwaite, Head of Commercial at Wigan Athletic, states: “This is a fantastic partnership which is great for both Wigan Athletic and Wigan Athletic fans.

“With online streaming of Latics content it will allow the fans to have much greater access to the club through this innovative new platform.

Gameday Xtra have invested heavily into the technology and the club is primed to increase commercial revenue from the partnership in the long term.”

You can look forward to a live stream of the exclusive 2015-16 kit launch on Friday 26 June. 

Be amongst the first to register in time for the launch of the platform at to get a taste of what’s to come at the start of the next season.
