Having closely watched the events at Wigan Athletic over recent days and weeks, it has been a concerning situation for the Supporters Club – and more importantly the players and staff of the Club – especially so soon after the events of 2020. Clearly the late payment of wages is an unacceptable position that should never happen, and can not be allowed to continue.
Having relayed our feelings directly to the owners, The Supporters Club has received reassurances that the problems currently being faced will be addressed and resolved quickly. We are pleased that the Manager and CEO are meeting the ownership group in Bahrain following the Watford fixture, and we are aware that work is ongoing to strengthen the club’s position. We expect further updates on this throughout the international break, and will continue to monitor this with the Club and its Owners on an ongoing basis until a positive outcome is reached.
We also understand that our members and all Latics supporters will have an infinite number of questions and concerns to put to the owners and the board. Our first priority is to ensure that the Club’s full attention is on the payment of wages, and securing the club’s finances. But we have also requested that a full update is issued by the owners and board at the earliest possible moment – including the opportunity to have questions answered.
We will provide further updates for supporters at the earliest opportunity as we receive more information. In the meantime, as always, our full and unwavering support goes out to the staff, Manager and players of Wigan Athletic. We hope you know that all Latics fans are right behind you.
