Turn it Blue and White
Over the past few weeks the Official Supporters Club have been busy preparing for the new season under new owners for the third time in less than 5 years. We have had a record number of members joining us pre-season and with 50% of all membership fees and any coach travel profits being donated to the WAFC Academy we welcome all new members this season.
It has also been an extremely busy time at the Football Club with the new owners assuring us that the first priority has been Shaun and his plans for the new season, as well as lots of hard work behind the scenes to stabilise the business of the football club after very challenging times.
We recently met with Shaun Maloney and Jamie Allen (Head of Media) to share ideas to boost the atmosphere and increase the footfall at home games. Shaun is keen to help with anything that will improve the experience for both fans and players at our games.
The first home game against Northampton on Saturday 12th August will be yet another historic occasion for Wigan Athletic. Back at home for the first time after challenges that we almost didn’t get through. The Official Supporters Club would like to mark the occasion to say thank you to Shaun, the club staff, and of course, our new owner Mike Danson and his team.
We are inviting all fans of Wigan Athletic to TURN IT BLUE & WHITE at the game on 12th August.
The Official Supporters Club have commissioned a special set of blue and white flags to celebrate and say THANK YOU. Three giant waver flags will be in position behind the South Stand goal every home game, waved as the team enters the pitch pre-match and after half time. These flags have been produced by the club design team at Outwork Studio and images of the flags are available for fans to TURN IT BLUE & WHITE on their social media profiles in the run up to the first home game.
In addition, Shaun was keen to remember the legends of Wigan Athletic who have gone before him. We have commissioned a fourth giant “Legends” flag that will be displayed in the seats at every home game. This flag will be revealed on Saturday 12th August. Shaun was not ready to be part of the flag just yet, but hopefully that will come in the future!
With just under two weeks to our first home game, we are asking Wigan Athletic fans to get involved with the campaign. Turn your social media profiles blue and white, use our special edition flag images on your social media, wear colours for the game, invite your friends to come along to the first home game to make some noise for Shaun and the boys.
We will be encouraging local shops and businesses to turn it blue and white, with social media coverage of those that get involved. Get in touch if you think you can help.
The Official Supporters Club works on behalf of fans, club and community and Season 2023-24 is an important one, where we rebuild our Football Club together. In the coming months we will be working with Diane Winnard, the club’s Fan Engagement Officer on a number of exciting projects that will see greater inclusivity and community benefits brought to Wigan Athletic. There will be lots going on for fans to get involved with this season.
The future looks bright, let’s TURN IT BLUE & WHITE!
