Wigan Athletic post losses of £7.7million

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.

Just highlights the insane amount of money sloshing around in football as in their "reduced" wage bill is £11.7m. You could pay FIVE RL clubs full wages bill for that and still have £1.7m over.

I wonder how long the new owners will put up with those losses?

Helps if they have fans turning up. I am sure they should be commanding a larger audience now given their success and championship status.
Rugby, Family and Strava... that’s about it for me tbh

I’ve seen Ellery Hanley, Martin Offiah and been dragged to Wigan games since memory... absolutely lucky!

Looks like Dave Whelan jumped ship just in time. A £4 million+ profit to a £7 million+ loss.

Smart move.

Their attendances are only good enough to support a league 1 team at best.Just like Bolton their chickens will come home to roost eventually.
