Wigan Athletic will entertain Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool in July as part of their preparations for their eagerly-awaited return to the Championship.

The five-times European champions will visit the DW Stadium on Sunday, July 17 (4pm), for Wigan’s only home game of the summer.

Tickets will be priced at £10, with concession prices of £5 for Under 11s and no admission fee for Under 5s.

The Wigan players will return to training on June 23, and spend a week at their new training home at Euxton before jetting out for a warm-weather camp in Portugal.

After their return to the UK, Latics will kick-off their pre-season programme with a trip to Chester on Wednesday, July 13 (7.30pm), before hosting Liverpool the following weekend.

Next up is a trip to Macclesfield on Wednesday, July 20 (7pm), before another short trip to Rochdale on Saturday, July 23 (3pm).
