The 25,000-capacity ground has had red and blue seats since opening in 1999. Talal revealed his intention to change the colours while making a plea for fans of the League One outfit and the Wigan Warriors to show greater unity.

He said: “This is such a small town, and we have football fans and rugby fans. The success of the Latics and the Warriors – and I want you to please mention this – means we have two great clubs here.

“And any success for anybody representing the town – and I include all athletes in this – is fantastic for our people.

“And part of the plan we have here is to make all the seats blue and white.”
