Large indoor area for fans to congregate before and after the game. Bar areas including Gin & Prosecco Bars.
Food Zone, guitarist, guest speakers.... and a new and improved merchandise shop.

Sounds really good. Hopefully it will now replace the South Stand as the place to be on game day and bring the club some long overdue match day revenue.

Great to hear. I’m sure fans will be far more tempted to go and put money in the clubs pockets than the stadium owners.

Did anyone go in there tonight? Absolutely fantastic.
Packed to the rafters before the game, very busy after the game.

90% there. Just need some food on. I'm sure over the next few weeks we will see it improve further. Can't wait for summer when both indoors and outdoors. Plenty £££, for Wigan RLFC and not the Stadium Company.

Love the new club shop too. Very smart.

Went before the game and thought it was good.
Perhaps some big screens showing Wigan tv etc could be added pretty easily
A very strong 7/10 for starters and with the right follow up could be a major success for the club.
Thank you IL for the investment

Loved it, as said there’s room for improvement but it was a great feeling having somewhere to call our own. Sound system needs improving, food adding as pointed out and some screen but it’s a great start.

I didn’t really like it but as it was he first one I’m sure it will get better. £4.50 a pint is rather steep especially if your trying to entice fans in. More food kiosks would go down well and perhaps invest in better speakers,
I’d probably have had the door at the top of the room opened as well for exit only as it was hard work trying to push through everyone

We went in before the game, thought it was very good, the heaters set the right tone, you cant disguise it was a running track, but the bar was good fast service and nice beer, it was £4.50 a pint, but you pay that for decent pint in most pubs now. The sound system wasn't up to it, and I'll echo the comments on TVs. But comparing it to the on ground facilities it was much better, work in progress but a very promising start.

I was running late so didn't have time to visit, but it looked busy after the game. I'm sure the club will consult with the fans in the near future for feedback, tbh I won't mind paying £4.50 a pint if the money is going into the club (and it's a decent pint).

We have finally got something of a home for fans, I imagine it could be quite lively before and after big games having a sing-song. Well done Wigan.

Warrington led 16-2 in Saturday's Grand Final, but their joy was short-lived as Wigan roared back to win the Super League title and extend the Wire's 58-year wait to be champions

Fully agree with this. Don't mind paying a little more for my ale if the cash is going to the club. I had a pint before the game and two after the game (none at the DW). If there could be some food kiosks that would be great, had mates there last night who came straight from work and were famished.

Agree with the screens, a few of them dotted around with SKY Sports would also be good. Yes it's a medium sized sports hall but it converted quite well, it was warm inside with the heaters and the bars served pretty quickly.

Before the game it was pretty rammed inside, I think when the weather turns nicer the fans will be able to mix from indoors to outdoors with food and drinks at both.

Not sure if the arena has kitchen areas but would be good if the Start & End of season dinners could be moved in there as well. I was pretty impressed with it all.
