WIGAN Athletic have given away the seats reserved for members of the Cardiff City board to local volunteers.
Bluebirds owner Vincent Tan had earlier ordered his club’s directors to boycott tonight’s clash at the DW Stadium following his fall-out with Dave Whelan and former City manager and current Latics boss Malky Mackay.
However, Wigan Today understands that rather than leave 10 of the best seats in the house vacant, bosses at Wigan Athletic have instead chosen to give them away to hard-working volunteers from Wigan Youth Zone and staff from the club’s Community Trust.
It’s believed that just two members from the Cardiff board were set to attend the Championship clash anyway.
Those who will now benefit will enjoy a meal in the chairman’s lounge before taking their seats in the director’s box for the game.
