THE FAMILY ZONE
The Family Zone, located underneath the East Stand, was relaunched ahead of the visit of Blackburn Rovers on Saturday 13th August, with hundreds of youngsters enjoying the revamped pre-match entertainment.
As well as brand new foosball, air hockey and colouring-in stations, junior supporters also got the chance to meet Latics summer additions, Shaun MacDonald and Jake Buxton!
Shaun and Jake met and joined in with the junior Latics fans and families, choosing three winners in a ‘design a Latics kit’ drawing competition and playing foosball with a number of fans.
This Saturday, the Family Zone will open from 1.30pm, with free entry for all junior supporters and their families, both home and away, plus your chance to meet some of the Wigan Athletic players! (Subject to availability)

The Wigan Athletic Supporters Club is hosted in the DW Sports Fitness Lounge in the South Stand.
Membership of the Supporters Club also allows entrance to the Wigan Athletic Supporters Club Bar, which provides a safe place for fans to go a couple of hours to chat and meet before most home games.
The bar serves food, drinks (alcoholic and non alcoholic), has Sky Sports (so if there is an early match it will generally be shown); members can book for away travel, renew or apply for membership and details of any Supporters Club events are also available there.
