Has Wigan Athletic and the DW stadium changed owners

Post by jaws1 » Sat Jun 20, 2020 5:32 pm

Listening on the radio today after the Latics ,Paul Cooke was asked about the new owners of the club .It appears it has new owners but it does not need clarification on the Hong Kong stock exchange.
Will this effect us in the long term??

Think there was some concern by the Latics owning HK company re financial losses. It has transferred wholly to the CEO of that company I believe. Was in WEP a while back.

They took over last season I think. They are International Entertainment Corporation, think that’s why we got a new big screen with live game replays.

We have another 25 year lease I think.
Anyone can support a team when it is winning, that takes no courage.
But to stand behind a team, to defend a team when it is down and really needs you,
that takes a lot of courage.

I hope this is helpful? 50 year lease from 1999, so 29 years left yet.

When the new owners took over we had to confirm that if we wanted another 25 years lease. The new owners saw that Wigan RL was part of their plans to generate income.
