DW Stadium back on the market?

Post by ian.birchall » Sat Dec 05, 2020 11:28 am

The EFL have said no to the proposed Spanish? buyers of the Lactics saying they do not have the funds necessary so everything back in play again for IL.
Forget a prop, buy a ground 😄

They have not said no yet just maybe so the Spanish bid is still in play. Other bidders sniffing around apparently. Maybe Eric is one of them and we’ll get the stadium for xmas 😀

Wigan Athletic: EFL blocks takeover of League One club
The prospective takeover of Wigan Athletic has been blocked after the EFL said the new owners "failed to satisfy the league's requirements".

The Spanish consortium were given a second extension to complete their purchase of the ailing League One club last month.

The English Football League said they had "undertaken significant due diligence on the relevant parties".

Wigan were put into administration and relegated from the second tier in July.

The EFL added: "The board reiterated its commitment to working with the administrators to secure a successful and sustainable future for the club and will meet with them to discuss the implications of this decision at the earliest opportunity."

BBC Sport understands that the current bidders still have an exclusivity period that lasts for another seven days.

Ian Leneghan interview posted yesterday on Wigan TV says he has spent lots of time trying to make sure that the Latics and Warriors stay together at the stadium .Put a bid in early doors to buy the stadium administrators say the Stadium is to be sold to whomever buys the Latics. Lease that is in place has to be honored whoever buys the stadium as Wigan Council are the landlords we just have to go to court and get it reinstated .If you've not got Wigan TV worth paying for a month to listen to what he had to say pity it is not on you tube or face book to appease the Latics fans who are against Warriors owning them or the stadium. He does not want to run the Latics .

I cannot understand why this saga is still dragging on. The administrators/liquidators have a statutory duty to realise as much as they can from the assets of the Club to pay off the debts claimed by the creditors. This long drawn out affair is effecting none of that, any money being realised will be being used to pay the costs that the administrators are charging/running up.

Ah, having written that I understand.
