Together - Equality, Diversity, Respect
In November 2015, Wigan Athletic Football Club, Wigan Athletic Community Trust and the DW Stadium launched 'Together', which aims to improve what we do and how we do it with particular focus on equality and diversity. This is the first of many programmes in which the Club, Community Trust and the DW Stadium are working together as one organisation sharing the good practices we have in place and seeking to improve upon these.
As part of this, building upon the Club's achievement of the Kick It Out Equality Standard - Preliminary level in 2014, we are working towards achieving the Premier League Equality Standard - Intermediate level in June 2017. To achieve this we have established a cross organisational working group who are actively reviewing and improving our practices under four key areas of our activities; our community, our staff, our supporters and customers, and our brand and reputation.
Should any supporter witness any form of discriminatory behaviour within the stadium please report it to the nearest steward or text WIGAN to 80800, our incident reporting line, providing details of the stand name, row number, seat number and description of the offender and incident.
Alternatively, KICK IT OUT
have released the second version of its reporting app, providing users with the ability to attach video, photo and audio evidence to complaints to help support investigations into discriminatory abuse and behaviour across football.
