Sorry if it's already been said, but this place is well worth piling into before matches.

Was absolutely buzzing last night, the shop was inundated and that mural on the wall, depicting the many major events from our astonishing history, is eye-popping.

If you like having a drink and a bite to eat before the match, go there. Way better spending our cash on the club we love than on the stadium they wouldn't let us buy into.

Have been in there a couple of times and its great. Can get a bit busy for what is quite a confined space but well worth a visit if only to grab some photos with players who are in there (Thornley, Tommy, Silva & Sutton in last night)

Where did you find food in there?

I went in on Friday, but ended up going to one of the burger vans outside the South Stand.

I thought it was a real missed opportunity, not to have food, when everyone is turning up at teat-time.
No trees were harmed during the creation of this post.

Snap!

We went in for food but couldn’t find anything so went to the burger van on the corner.

Kids didn’t want to stay inside as just too congested and couldn’t see anything for them to do.

No food, missus and lads ended up going back to the retail park for a subway. Missing a massive trick, although would need to be served outside as the fanzone is rammed prematch.

Maybe the people I saw eating had taken their own food in.

Apologies for that, it was my first time in there.

But I still think it's a great place for pre and post match drinks. If for no other reason than the money goes directly to Wigan Warriors.

I agree. Its great to think that some cash is going directly to the club. You can't get near the club shop at times.

I love the concept and that we generate more cash but with a bit more thought and utilising more of the facility i.e. outside it could be a lot better.
I didnt get there until late on Friday because I couldn't be arrised to queue for a poor selection of drinks in a room that would be sweltering hot.
My grandson loves it. A great photo opportunity for the youngsters as the players do a great job mixing with the fans.

As I say the concept is brilliant but a bit more imagination and commercial nouse is required.
