As the team prepares to travel to the USA to begin its pre-season match programme against Columbus Crew on Saturday, the club can confirm that fans back home are very much looking forward to the new season – with almost 8,000 renewals and new season ticket holders snapping up seats very quickly this week following Monday's release of all available seats - in readiness for Owen Coyle’s new look Latics returning to the UK and kicking off the new season on August 3.
Barely three weeks into the job at the DW, Coyle has already transformed the side, bringing in seven new players including the arrival of Grant Holt from Norwich City and England goalkeeper Scott Carson – but he says there is still much more to come.
“We are working so hard every day to try and bring in new faces to make this squad filled with quality players who are desperate for the season to start and get going. There is a fantastic buzz about the place and to hear that the fans are already buying into that is really encouraging.
“The whole country saw what a special set of fans we have here at the end of last season, fans that need to be rewarded with the best possible team to watch.”
With renewal prices starting from £280 for adults – just £10.77 per match – prices are among the cheapest in the division, representing fantastic value for money. As well as all 23 home Championship fixtures , the price also includes three home Europa League group games as FA Cup Champions Latics embark on their historic first ever season in Europe.
