Supporters Update 19/09/20

For the past four weeks Wigan Athletic Supporters Club have been working closely with some of the parties interested in purchasing Wigan Athletic Football Club. 

On Friday 18th September the Supporters Club agreed to support a bid from one of those interested parties, with the aim of using the monies raised by the supporters via the crowdfunder as planned – in return for an equity stake in the football club and to secure a voice for the fans in the board room.

As has been reported via social media this bid, which we are unable to disclose in full, has been rejected by the administrators.

Despite this, we remain committed to finding a solution. We have returned to make immediate contact with the bidder to review their position. We are also continuing to speak with other remaining interested parties, and we are still confident that a credible way forward will be found.

Once again we ask supporters to understand that there are legal processes we have to abide by and we cannot share information as frequently as we would like. However we will continue to update you at every opportunity, and we will keep working tirelessly until the survival of our Football Club has been secured.

From all the team at Wigan Athletic Supporters Club.

One of the Wigan supporters I know was at the lads football yesterday, he’s resigned to the fact his club will be gone by the end of the month.

I almost felt sorry for him, but then he said “who are your shitkickers getting rinsed by today?” And I felt all warm inside.

Why was it rejected?

only 2 million apparently. Admins claiming that included supporters club putting up a million of that.

Bidders mouthpiece (aka Nixon) reckons thats not true, they offered 2 million of their money. Anyway admins holding out for 3 for ground and 1 for training ground and chippy.

Tick Tock

Well how much do they need to continue for a season?

Thing about this supporters club cash..once it's gone its gone. Are they going to raise the same cash two and three times over? Might buy them two or three months. Nothing more. They still need to find someone generous who is willing to buy a tinpot football club in a rugby town. Complete with supporters who have higher expectations than their pre and post peg-leg history suggest is realistic. 

My heart bleeds.

If say they went next month and couldn't continue to the end of this season, what will happen to the points that 2 clubs have already taken from them?

Will they be void or will they give all other s yet to play them an extra 3 points?

Voided

Results expunged, just like their previous incarnation who went after 8 games.

Think Covid is saving them at moment from a deadline or pressure from EFL. With so many clubs on a financial cliff edge no way they want to be seen pushing any one over the edge. EFL hoping admins will make it easy for them but as long as no fans stuff goes on cant see EFL pulling the handle (or pushing the button if you're posh) and flushing the turd yet.

True. On the other hand if they have to expunge double figures worth of fixtures that'll be awkward too. My money is on the glorious moment arriving towards the end of October/start of Nov. Wouldn't Nov 5 be a good date. Chuck em on the flames.
