Here is the first shot of Wigan Athletic’s new home kit for 2018-19.

A play on Latics’ classic home kit of 1995-98 – the era when Dave Whelan bought the club – the home kit carries the traditional blue and white colours with a hint of the classic green of that era.

“It’s a very similar kit to that one in 1995 and it seems very fitting considering that was the year my grandfather bought this great football club,” said Latics chairman David Sharpe.

“The new season is less than a month away and I share everyone else’s excitement to see the lads in the new kit for our pre-season matches and then our first game of the season against Sheffield Wednesday.”

Shirts will be available to buy online and in person at the Latics Store within the Grand Arcade from Friday, July 13, with a special event set to be hosted at the Grand Arcade Shopping Centre.

Will Grigg, Dan Burn, Chey Dunkley, Jamie Jones, Michael Jacobs and Kal Naismith will all be at the launch, which runs between 2.30-5.00pm.
