WIGAN are creating a dedicated family stand - and paying homage to their old Central Park home - when season tickets go on sale this week.
Prices are generally the same as last season, when Shaun Wane guided the Warriors to an historic league and Cup double.
Seasonal Membership packages for the 2014 Super League campaign go on sale tomorrow (Tuesday) with the club promising fans up to five games free, compared to match-by-match ticket purchases.
The renewal deadline has also been extended until December 2. There is no headline-grabbing price freeze - generally, they remain static, though because some areas have been restructured there have been some small increass and decreases.
Arguably the biggest change has been the introduction of a family stand in the South Stand, which will offer flexible unreserved seating, baby changing facilities, face painting, children’s entertainment, Max’s Tuck Shop and much more.
A spokesman for the club said: “It will provide parents with the assurance that they will be sat next to like-minded families in a safe and friendly environment.”
He added that the rest of the stadium remains family-friendly.
Elsewhere Warriors will also look to recreate the famous terrace atmosphere from yesteryear in ‘The Pop’. The area located in blocks ES9 and ES10 of the East Stand will be named after the Popular Side at the club’s former Central Park home and is the place to congregate for those fans wanting to generating atmosphere on matchdays.
A spokesman added: “To ensure vocal fans aren’t financially disadvantaged by moving to the East Stand, the concession and adult prices will now be the same in The Pop as the South Stand.”
Junior Warriors can again get memberships for all home Super League games starting from £26 in the South Stand. As well as having their seat secured for all league games at the DW Stadium, juniors will also receive free ‘ground entry’ to all away league games.
Wigan have also extended the Young Adult membership to cover fans aged 16 to 21. These fans will now be eligible for concessionary prices in all home areas when purchasing a seasonal membership.
The Ticket Exchange Scheme will again be offered, as well as a new feature, ‘Sky Swap’, which helps members if they miss a home league fixture after June because it is switched from is originally timeslot for Sky TV coverage. In this eventuality the member will receive a percentage discount on their membership for the following year.
Renewal prices start at £206 for adults and £130 for concessions with great savings for families including a one adult and one junior package in the South Stand costs £219 for the full season.
