Wigan Athletic season card holders have been given three options regarding the five remaining home matches of the 2019/20 campaign.

After internal discussions and consultation with a number of supporters, the club have tried to be as fair as possible with fans - while mindful of the potential hole in the budget.

It's understood if every single supporter were to request a refund, the cost to the club would be in the region of £260,000.

However, with some supporters also feeling the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, a pro-rata refund is available should fans wish to request one.

Alternatively, fans can substitute the refunds for a ‘free’ match streaming pass, to enable them to watch the behind-closed-doors matches at home without charge.

A third option allows supporters to add the refund amount to their ticketing account for future campaigns.

Fans have been invited to fill in a form on the club's official website to indicate their preferences.

A club statement continued: "Should supporters have one or more season tickets within their household, there is the ability in the form below to, for example, request a pro-rata refund for some of those tickets and to donate the funds/receive a streaming pass for the other.

"The highest value ticket will be exchanged for a streaming pass.

"Supporters in the UK & Ireland should be aware that individual match passes for the streaming of games will be priced at £10 per match.

"Passes are £5 per match for those users outside of the UK & Ireland.

"Individual match passes for those who choose not to take the streaming option and non-season card holders will be available from Saturday 13th June.

"Audio commentary will be available for £4.50 a month. Supporters should also be aware any fixtures selected for live Sky Sports broadcast are available on Latics TV to season ticket holders only.

"Should a supporter decide to request a pro-rata refund, we will contact them individually for any future fixtures selected for Sky Sports broadcast to ensure they have a free pass for those matches.

"None of our first three matches have been selected for Sky Sports broadcast, we will communicate with supporters should any matches be selected by Sky Sports ASAP.
