Season tickets are superb value for money, unfortunately due to business restrictions I can no longer buy one (after many years of doing so).

Instead I attend games where I can, usually paying on the gate. Last night I paid £23 to get in the South Stand. I have taken to getting myself a beer in the fanzone (money straight to Wigan RL not DW) but don't eat/drink in the stadium normally.

Last nights beer was free courtesy of Kingfisher (500 pints given away). Cause of this I bought a bunch of Golden Gamble tickets to make up for the fact my £3 didn't go to the club.

Whilst I'm lucky that I'm in a situation I can afford it, there was times (back in the early 00's) when I couldn't due to kids coming along and I had to prioritise. I get that.

My feelings are that (for those that can) spend as much on Wigan RL as you can on game day, match tickets, food, drinks and merchandise. Bring along a +1 if you can.

Do this and we can help the club get its finances back on track. If this club can attract averages of 16k in times of hardship then it can do it playing exciting, attractive and winning rugby.

So are you saying they aren't reasonably priced? How much do you think a fair price would be?

Just to be absolutely clear, I never stated affordability and value for money where the same thing so I'm not sure what your point in raising that is.

What you're quoting above relates to your personal ability to afford them or not. That has no bearing on the definition of affordable (I've put the definition in the original post if you aren't sure what that is). It's purely a comment on on your personal circumstances.


Absolutely not. As I said, I think they’re very reasonably priced and I’d love to be able to get them. Another poster further back in the tread believed I’d priced it up wrong so I checked.

South Stand adult is £277 (x2)
South Stand Junior is £50 (x3)

That’s definitely £704 for our first season ticket and I clearly understand that renewal would be cheaper thereafter.

As 100% Warrior said, affordability is subjective. £704 might be affordable for some but not for others. Therefore my perspective on this is that whilst I believe season tickets are good value for money, they’re not affordable (for my family).

I’ll be at as many games as possible though!

The jury has returned its verdict. It’s definitely a Solskjær moment for the club getting giddy too soon and now stuck with a bloke who doesn’t seem able to coach a team in big games.

The jury is still deliberating for me. Give him 10 games next season, if there hasn’t been drastic improvements in all departments then it’s got to be a goodbye. He’ll keep his job this season for taking us to 2nd from being near the bottom and the chaos that was 2019 for Wigan with off field sagas galore too.

Id suggest Wigan still had a large core of interested fans at that point. You only need to look at this message board, its not even close to how it was in the early 00's. The game as a whole is on the decline. Its stale, sometimes boring, too sterile and nothing out of the ordinary happens with each game being similar to the last and players that are robotic with little variation doing the same things over and over again until the opposition tires or cracks. When was the last time you saw a Wigan team put on a new move that had obviously been practiced and perfected in training?

People wont pay to bored.

Stop watching then and stop posting on this forum. RL and Wigan doesn’t and will not miss you.

You're rather hostile dont you think? Im giving a reason why people dont want to spend money on going to games and all i get is a hostile reply. No wonder people dont go with bigots like you in the crowd. Id hate to be sat next to somebody that cant engage in a dialogue without throwing their toys out of the pram.

I wish you'd give it a rest. You've been ridiculously negative recently, and all because of a couple of bad results.

Seriously, you should have been with me watching us get relegated at the end of the 1970s after being raised on Eric Ashton and Billy Boston.

Instead of everything being doom, gloom and disaster, it could just as easily be argued that the current Wigan team has simply come to the end of its natural life. Half the pack are physically and mentally worn out, and the other half are still only kids. We also have a halfback, who, despite his agent's ability to negotiate astonishingly generous deals for him, has repeatedly been unable to unleash a pretty decent three-quarter line. Many fans recognise this, and many think that, under Lam we've been punching above our weight these last few months. By the same token, almost no one thought we could win the Grand Final, or even that getting there would be a good idea.

As for the game dying on its backside, well ... I refer you again to the late 1970s, when the average British club played to average attendances of 3/4,000.

I'm not saying everything's okay. We need to get a lot more money into the game (and as Nigel Wood's pockets are no longer part of the equation, maybe we can). But you've got to stop spreading this abject defeatism and OTT negativity on every thread. It really does make you sound like a fifth columnist.

All you do is post negative stuff; we shouldn’t have played the WCC, Lam is a crap coach, our forwards are all crap and need to be coached by Kelvin Skerrett, rugby league is boring and you don’t like it anymore. Yet you post on here every day. You sound like the kind of spectator that sits there shouting abuse at our own players the whole game. If you ever turned up that is.

Remember when you posted this after the CC Final? :lol: you haven’t got a clue what you’re on about

Is no more.

Walmesley is just a big unit with a few decent carries but has a soft underbelly and always makes handling errors in big games.

Thompson over rated to the hilt. Outplayed by Mike Cooper.

Roby on the decline badly. A couple of years ago he would of tore Warringtons tired defence apart with his runs from dummy half.
