There are two main social channels that we use and no doubt you will be familiar with both Facebook and Twitter.

Our Facebook page you can find at www.facebook.com/wiganathletic.
It's not official until it's official
The official website should always be considered as the most comprehensive source of information and will remain the main portal where fans can find all the latest and up to date information. You will, if you follow or like accordingly, receive timely notifications via Facebook and Twitter as to new information and news via our social channels along with a link to the relevant page on the official website.
With the increased use of social media, third parties often claim to have news of signings, tickets prices and a whole host of other rumours. Please always treat non-cited information as unofficial and untrue or unconfirmed until such time as you see the confirmation on the official website or via one of the two social channels above.
