Wigan Warriors has announced it will provide new bus routes for supporters to make their way to the DW Stadium on matchdays.

This new travel service, supplied by Tyrers of Adlington, will start on Sunday as the Wigan Warriors host Sydney Roosters for the World Club Challenge.

The Tyrer double decker buses will be available for Wigan fans in all 2019 home games and will be branded in Cherry and White to make it easier for supporters to recognise and access the service and distinguish them from general service transport.

Prices for travel are as follows:

£3 for an Adults Single ticket

£4 for an Adults Return ticket

£2 for an U16 Single ticket

£3 for an U16 Return ticket

Fans can get on the buses at any normal bus stop.
