Roberto will be holding his first fans forum as Latics’ manager on Tuesday 17th November and tickets are priced at £5, but we have details on how to get in for less than half that price.




Wigan Athletic in association with Wigan Athletic Supporters Club have announced that the first Roberto Martinez Fans Forum will be held in the DW Sports Fitness Lounge, located in the South Stand of the DW Stadium on Tuesday 17th November at 7pm.

On what promises to be a memorable and entertaining evening Supporters Club Memebers will enjoy a massive reduction for tickets to the event that will be hosted by Graham Lovett. Roberto will be taking questions from the floor which he will answer with his usual honesty and candour and of course he will be available afterwards fro autographs and pictures.

It is a rare opportunity for fans to get a unique insight into what it is like to be a Premiership manager and how the team are developing. Roberto will look back on his summer return to Latics, the progress of the team and his aspirations for this season and beyond.

Roberto is looking forward to the event and said, “We are all on an incredible journey and everyone knows that returning to Wigan Athletic was a dream of mine. Already, supporters are able to see the way I want the team to play and I look forward to being able to address our great fan base. I look forward to seeing you all on the night.”

Tickets, to include a hot pot supper, can be purchased at the DW Stadium Ticket Office, Latics Club shop or via the Supporters Club before the Fulham game on Sunday 8th November. They are priced at a very reasonable £2 for Supporters Club members or £5 for non-members. That’s right, if you are Supporters Club member you get in for just £2.

The event sold out last season and with this being Roberto’s first forum it is sure to be another popular evening so those wishing to attend should purchase tickets as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

Membership of the Supporters Club is just £5 per season which allows you to travel on the coaches and gain access to the Supporters Club Lounge in the Robin Park Sports Centre, non-members will have to pay a door charge of £1 per person per match – NO EXCEPTIONS.

You can apply for membership at any of the home league games at the Supporters Club Lounge in the Robin Park Sports complex, next door to the Cafe in the Sports Centre.

Bookings for coaches will also be taken at all the home league games in the Supporters Lounge or by calling in Mayfair Travel on Wigan Lane, their number is 01942 829988.

A newly designed site is on the way and this will be able to accept bookings on line for members.
