We are aware of an automated email message sent from the Crowdfunder system on Tuesday 16th February.
To all supporters of Wigan Athletic and the SAVE OUR CLUB crowdfunder.
Since our campaign began we have had plans in place to try and make a change that will secure the future of our football club. We believed that there was a will amongst Latics fans to act and make a difference for the better.
But we could never have imagined the strength of your support. We have been overwhelmed by everything that our supporters and the football family across the world have done to drive this campaign so far. Having already passed £600,000, every extra pound we now receive will make our voice stronger. So please keep pledging.
At this point our committee also wanted to give all supporters an update on the next steps we have urgently begun.
Firstly, we would like to reiterate that we will be working on behalf of you, the supporters. We are reviewing every option available in close detail and we are doing everything we can to drive the next stages of the process as quickly as possible. Once plans are in place, we will share what we believe is the best way to use your pledges. Rest assured that your donations will only ever be used in the best interests of our football club. Not just to save Wigan Athletic, but to secure its future too.
Due to legal restrictions and non-disclosure agreements we may not be able to share every detail with our supporters, and we may not be able to update you as often as we would like. But we will be transparent and open as far as possible and we will provide updates at every opportunity through our website and social media channels.
This week, with the consent of the administrators, Wigan Athletic Supporters Club have already met with one of the interested parties who have put in a bid to the administrators. They are very positive about working with us should their bid be successful and they are keen to ensure that they have local partners working with them to make the Football Club a future success.
We are also continuing to work with the council, the Community Trust, Jonathan Jackson, and other partners to ensure that there is a solution to the survival of our Football Club.
At every stage we will continue to keep the club and its supporters at the heart of everything we do, and together we will do everything we can to SAVE OUR CLUB and secure its future for generations to come.
Keep the faith.
From all the team at Wigan Athletic Supporters Club
