End of Season Update 2023
Now that the dust has settled on the fabulous FA Cup 10 year anniversary weekend, we want to provide fans with an end of season update.
The celebrations last weekend was amazing, and we want to thank every supporter who joined us at the FA Cup re-run evening and the anniversary dinner, which raised over £6,000 for Wigan Athletic Community Trust, and of course the legends game which was brilliantly organised by Mark Hayes and Joseph’s Goal. Meeting heroes, enjoying time with fellow fans, and making new memories is what it is all about!
This season has been a very challenging one to be a Wigan fan. Over the last few months, the delayed wage payments have meant that again we have endeavoured to take an active role in finding out what the issues have been within the club, and how they can be resolved. It is for the ownership to explain their actions and plans to all fans, and this is something that we are continuing to stress to them regularly. Every fan deserves transparency on what has happened in the past few months, and we are united with all supporters’ groups in demanding that the owners speak urgently and deliver on their words.
Going forward, we believe that fan representation in our football club is absolutely vital. Twice now in the past three years, the club has needed its fans, more than ever, to fight for the right thing for our football club. As the Official Supporters Club, we are pushing for this representation to happen at the earliest opportunity. We will work to ensure that this will come with organised opportunities for all fans to share their views and opinions with the Football Club. Again, we are in discussions with the club about how this can be achieved next season.
The Official Supporters Club enters its 40th season in August. Given the work that has been done over those years and the greater involvement in recent times, we have taken steps to formally become a Supporters Trust for 2023-2024. This will afford fans greater rights, and better safeguards for our club in the future.
We look forward to sharing our plans for the future at our AGM on Saturday, the 3rd of June 2023. This will be held at Whelan’s Sports Bar at 1pm. Anyone wanting to get involved and become a Committee Member, please get in touch via the secretary on email@example.com. All you need is the application form, a proposer and seconder, and to have the form back in by the 26th May 2023 . All applicants will be voted in at the AGM. All members are welcome, and after the meeting free pizza will be available along with a screening of The FA Cup final.
It has been a busy and challenging season, but we will continue to work hard for our fans, our club and our community. We would like to thank all members for their ongoing support.
Enjoy the summer and see you for 2023-24.
