WIGAN Athletic supporters who purchase season cards for the forthcoming campaign will be able to secure their spot for 2016/7 for no more than £199.

Latics have moved to reward fans for sticking by their side with the price promise for everyone who commits by the first home game on August 16.

As part of the initiative, the club are lifting early bird deadline of July 15, with supporters having until midnight on Friday, August 14 to purchase 2015-16 season cards at early bird prices and qualify for the 2016-17 £199 price guarantee.

With season-card sales for the new campaign reported to be ‘very healthy’, the club have decided those supporters who have shown faith should be rewarded.

“We value our season card holders’ loyalty,” said chief executive Jonathan Jackson.

“The price guarantee for 2016-17 is a significant reduction on this season’s prices, because we feel we should reward those fans who have already kept the faith with us, or who are planning to do so in the coming weeks, regardless of our league status.

“Wigan Athletic have always been committed to affordable football and already offer some of the best value season cards in the country.

“Even so, we realise the investment supporters make at this time of year is a significant expense and, by making this guarantee for the following season, we will be helping our fans support the team at even better value prices.

“As we move into a new era for the football club, we are encouraged that so many supporters will be there with us this season despite relegation to League One, and this is our way of showing how much the club appreciate their loyalty.

“Every season card holder will pay reduced prices in 2016-17 and no seat will cost more than £199.

“Our supporters are the heart and soul of the club through good and bad times and this is our promise to them.”

Season cards are available for purchase from the DW Stadium ticket office, on line at wiganathletic.com/tickets, from 0871 33 66 552 or by calling in person between 10.00am and 5.00pm on weekdays.
