Supporters Update 19/09/20
For the past four weeks Wigan Athletic Supporters Club have been working closely with some of the parties interested in purchasing Wigan Athletic Football Club.
On Friday 18th September the Supporters Club agreed to support a bid from one of those interested parties, with the aim of using the monies raised by the supporters via the crowdfunder as planned – in return for an equity stake in the football club and to secure a voice for the fans in the board room.
As has been reported via social media this bid, which we are unable to disclose in full, has been rejected by the administrators.
Despite this, we remain committed to finding a solution. We have returned to make immediate contact with the bidder to review their position. We are also continuing to speak with other remaining interested parties, and we are still confident that a credible way forward will be found.
Once again we ask supporters to understand that there are legal processes we have to abide by and we cannot share information as frequently as we would like. However we will continue to update you at every opportunity, and we will keep working tirelessly until the survival of our Football Club has been secured.
From all the team at Wigan Athletic Supporters Club.
