FSA don’t pull any punches
Earlier today it was reported that clubs at the top of the Premier League had been planning in secret to pursue a wide-ranging restructure of the English footballing pyramid named “Project Big Picture”.
Never underestimate the supporters of Wigan Athletic.
Little more than four days after launching the SAVE OUR CLUB campaign, you’ve already reached £500,000.
Now, thanks to your inspiring response, we believe that we could push our campaign even further. With every extra pound raised our voice can only get stronger. For that reason our campaign will continue with the hopeful aim of reaching £750,000 by Friday 4th September. If our second target can be reached, then who knows how far we could go!
Over the past week we are so pleased to have played a part in galvanising our fellow fans at a time when many of us were at our lowest point. We are so proud of the way in which Wigan Athletic supporters – and football supporters across the country – have come together to turn our situation around and ensure that a club in the heart of its community CAN NOT DIE.
We absolutely believe that our club will be stronger when our supporters work together to safeguard its future.
So please let’s continue to pledge, continue to share, continue to spread the word, and be assured that your Supporters Club will continue to give everything we can to harness your passion and secure the best possible position for Latics fans… and the best possible future for Wigan Athletic.
Once again THANK YOU so much for your support, and thank you for your help to SAVE OUR CLUB.
WE are Wigan.
From all the team at Wigan Athletic Supporters Club.
