We were delighted to welcome Wigan Athletic into the Football Aid family in 2005 to host our 'Legends Master Class' at their famous Academy and they continued to host these unique events up until 2007. Reserve Team Coach, David Lowe and former Wigan winger, David Lee ran the show in '06, putting fans through the drills, thrills and spills experienced by pro footballers during training sessions while Lee McCulloch was also onside to stamp his seal of the approval on the event, explaining, "It's great to see others put through their paces for once!"
RECENT EVENT AVAILABILITY
Unfortunately the club have not able to participate in recent seasons, with the ongoing Rugby League matches played on the pitch during the summer months continuing to prevent the use of the DW Stadium for charity events like ours.
However we continue to investigate the possibility of arranging a game at the DW Stadium and if you'd like to hear news of any future Wigan Athletic events, please remember to Register on the website (if you’ve not done so already) and keep an eye on this page for updates as we get them.
