Ultimate Wigan

Ultimate Wigan is a font of information about Wigan Athletic Football Club created by George Chilvers.

The ‘Ultimate Wigan’ website he created back in 1999 was one of the original online hubs, full of Wigan Athletic news, information, old football kits, squad details, as well as all sorts of other information that you won’t find elsewhere.

Who’s our most famous supporter (allegedly) – how did Adolf Hitler have an influence on our team colours – why did the team of the 1930s leap up when they heard a car – how did a broken leg lead to someone becoming a multi-millionaire – and what happened to Wigan’s first Football League team within seconds of the kick-off of their very first match??
