CUP fever hit the DW Stadium yesterday with Latics selling out their initial allocation of tickets for the game against Macclesfield next week.
Within hours of the 1,894 tickets’ going on sale, they were totally sold out.
Fans braved the freezing conditions as they queued right around the back of the north stand well before the ticket office even opened. As a result of the high demand, the club has now received an additional 440 tickets for the FA Cup tie, which went on sale this morning.
It will be Wigan’s biggest away following this season as Roberto Martinez’s men make the short journey to the Conference side next Saturday with fans eagerly anticipating a good day out at Moss Rose.
