Be a part of Latics history as Dave Whelan is to address the supporters prior to Leeds United match.

  • Outgoing Chairman Dave Whelan to address supporters prior to kick-off versus Leeds United.
  • Supporters encouraged to take up £15.00 advance ticket price for historic occasion.
  • Fans encouraged to arrive early with special edition programme on offer and Mr. Whelan expected to take to pitch from 2.40pm.
As Dave Whelan pulls down the curtain on 20 fantastic years as Latics Chairman, supporters have the chance to thank him for all he has done for the club when he addresses the DW Stadium crowd prior to the Sky Bet Championship match versus Leeds United, this coming Saturday 7 March.

Mr. Whelan announced this week that he was passing the reins on to his grandson, David Sharpe, who witnessed Latics produce a superb 1-0 victory at Norwich City on Wednesday in his first game as Chairman.

The matchday programme has been produced as a tribute to Mr. Whelan and will become an instant collector’s item as the new era begins for Wigan Athletic, while the game itself bears huge significance in Latics’ survival bid - three points would set up a huge six-pointer with Rotherham United a week later.

It’s an essential afternoon for all Latics supporters!
