2 November 2018

Supporters are invited to join us on Sunday - when we host Leeds United at the DW Stadium - for a 23rd minute applause, to thank the Whelan Family for the special memories they have given us all throughout their ownership of the club since 1995.

Earlier on Friday it was confirmed the clash with Marcelo Bielsa's side at the DW will be the final match under Whelan family ownership, ahead of the completion of next week's takeover of the club by International Entertainment Corporation.

From the Fourth Division to eight seasons in the Premier League, a total of five promotions and seven trophies, it has been some ride. A 2013 FA Cup final win at Wembley (and subsequent European tour) the pinnacle of an amazing journey. 

When the clock hits 23 minutes on Sunday, we invite all supporters to join us in applauding the Whelan family as a celebration and thanks for everything they have given to the town of Wigan and especially Wigan Athletic Football Club.
