So for the first time in a good few years, we have managed to extend a contract with our current sponsors. Shows just how far we have come in recent years for the club to be able to hold onto someone especially after relegation. Yet there is that golden carrot for the sponsors of the club being FA Cup holder, and our Europa League adventure.
So with that in mind a new on year deal has been thrashed out. I am sure that could be extended further beyond next year depending on our league status for the following season. 12BET's chief executive speaking to the club's official website said:
'We are delighted to continue our association with the Club and look forward to joining the Wigan Athletic fans on a European tour.'
