Statement on Season Tickets

Statement on Season Tickets

IndieLatics welcomes the latest initiative by the Club regarding season tickets prices.

We also welcome the move by the clubs owners to share details and engage with supporters on the issue. This is a positive step and will hopefully see both club and supporters forge a secure and positive relationship that helps the club and team grow both on and off the pitch.

Everyone is well aware that most people are still facing the affects of a prolonged cost of living crisis and it is a serious commitment for working people to fork out for season tickets when there are so many other priorities for people and families to consider.

We feel the club has just about got the balance right in terms of pricing correctly for long standing supporters and also securing revenue that ensures the clubs viability in a financial sense.

A sensible approach seems to have been adopted by the current board and we hope this will secure the clubs future on a stable financial footing. As a club and a group of supporters we have enjoyed success and tremendous memories these past 28 years or so but more so than ever, modern football can not be sustained on one persons pipe dream and a club such as Wigan needs to be founded on financial reality.

That is not to say the club should lack ambition, clubs such as Rotherham, Luton, Peterborough etc have enjoyed decent successes themselves in recent years and if we continue to invest in our youth set up and align that with sensible long term investment in the first team squad, there is no reason Wigan Athletic cannot attain similar successes going forwards.

One initiative we would like the board to consider is that of family tickets, going forwards. There can surely be some flexibility of pricing using the capacity in the South stand, to offer discounted Season and Match day tickets to supporters purchasing and adult/s and child/Children’s tickets together. We feel this is a key area that can help the club grow revenue and attendance in the future.
