Special programmes for each pre-season friendly priced at just £2 each as the Reds of Manchester and Merseyside visit the DW Stadium this weekend.

  • Wigan Athletic official match programme on sale for Manchester United and Liverpool games.
  • Programme priced at just £2.
  • We look back at historical matches with United and Liverpool, our first ever Premier League match against Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea and much, much more.
Two special edition official matchday programmes have been produced for this weekend’s mega double-header with Manchester United and Liverpool at the DW Stadium.

Programmes, priced at just £2, will be available from sellers outside the Stadium prior to kick-off and are packed full of content from players, staff and our archives.

Inside the Manchester United programme, Chairman David Sharpe and captain Craig Morgan give their pre-season updates whilst Reece James discusses coming up against his former club.

Other features include a look back at our only ever win over United as Shaun Maloney fired one of our best Premier League goals home to secure a 1-0 success at the DW in 2012, a rewind to 2005 and our first-ever Premier League game, coincidentally against Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea.

A classic image from our archives features too from the era in which Sir Bobby Charlton briefly took charge of Latics’ first team.

And There’s plenty more to whet the appetite for the new season in the first of the two programmes.

Inside the Liverpool edition, manager Gary Caldwell and chief executive Jonathan Jackson contribute their regular features whilst we also take a look back at our first pre-season friendly at Chester on Wednesday evening.

We profile five players to have played for both teams, look back at six classic matches with Liverpool and talk to Stephen Warnock who made his professional debut with the Reds before going on to make the best part of 70 appearances for the Anfield side.

Latics midfielder Max Power is a huge Liverpool fan and he gives us his Liverpool ‘One to Eleven’ from his lifetime.

There’s games for the kids and more on Jurgen Klopp and Mourinho too as these two 36 page programmes are filled to the brim with content and make the perfect souvenir for this weekend.
