The game is a 5:15pm GMT kick off. Which is good in a respect we don’t have to get up early, yet it means any travelling back is going to be late. Don’t expect to be crawling back into bed before 12 if you are travelling down on the coaches.
First to the tickets though. Priced from £30 to £60 with a £10 reduction for concessionaries, the pricing isn’t bad. Category 1 the cheapest at £30, with each of the other respected categories going up by £10.
Tickets are available from Sunday at 10am for season ticket holders, online and in person from the ticket office; telephone sales are only available from Monday. Which is better? I am edging my bets with a visit to the ticket office, the online site is prone to being slow normally, imagine being inundated with happy Wiganers.
It's three tickets per season ticket, and with 10,000+ season ticket holders, most of our 31,863 allocation is likely to go before the tickets go on general sale on the 31st March.
The club are supplying transport down which you can purchase for £35 per person. Supporter Club Members also have transport at roughly the same price. Between the two there should be space for every fan to get the coach down, as train travel is not advised with the work on the lines, and the last train out of London to Wigan leaving at 8:31pm leaving little time to get from the stadium, even at the best scenario (no extra time or penalties).
As for seating itself the plan is posted below. Section 111 in the bottom tier and sections 512 to 515 in the top tiers are recommended signing sections. The excitement of it all is already getting to me, and will become a lot more real when I have a ticket in my hand on Sunday
