WIGAN Athletic’s FA Cup semi-final against Arsenal will take place on Saturday, April 12, at Wembley Stadium.

The FA have confirmed the game will have a 5pm kick-off and will be broadcast live on ITV.

Wigan fans will have the East end of Wembley Stadium, the same as they had for all three of their visits to the ground last season.

The last train back to Wigan from Euston Station is scheduled for 8.31pm that evening. However, there is one scheduled to Manchester at 9pm.

The other semi-final between Hull City and Sheffield United will take place on the Sunday with a 4pm kick-off.

It was initially feared that Wigan fans would have to wait for confirmation with a meeting between Latics, Arsenal and the FA scheduled for later this week but details have now been rubber-stamped before that goes ahead.
