The Warriors will be wearing this retro-style kit on Sunday against Castleford to celebrate 30 years since the famous 1987 World Club Challenge victory against Manly.

A limited run of 1,000 playing-weight shirts have been produced by technical partners Erreà for fans to buy, individually numbered and delivered in a limited edition presentation case, costing £60 adults, £40 juniors.

Wigan hinted earlier this year they would play in a ‘one-off’ shirt when all their Super League rivals wore special tops at the Magic Weekend.

Last year, they played a match in a ‘Hall of Fame’ shirt on a night when Martin Offiah, Colin Clarke and Frano Botica were inducted into the club’s exclusive panel.

And in recent seasons they have had other exclusive tops, including for their World Club Challenges in 2011 and 2014.

They played in a special Joining Jack-inspired top in 2012, and the following year both they and Leeds had ‘Superman’ inspired shirts for a clash between the two.
