Help us raise £750k or more to save Wigan Athletic. Pledge to give our supporters the strongest possible voice in the future of our club.

New stretch target

We've reached our initial target, but now we are working to make our voices even stronger. Every extra pound we raise will increase our chances of representing the fans on our club's board, and make the voice of our supporters stronger as we work to save our club.


Wigan Athletic supporters have already raised almost £200,000 to fulfil the club’s immediate objectives after entering administration. However, there is now a real risk that Wigan Athletic may not attract new owners before the 2020/21 season begins. 

It is critical that we now come together to raise funds that will SAVE OUR CLUB. We need you to pledge £250 or more, or whatever you can reasonably afford, to help us secure an active role for the supporters in the club's future ownership, and ensure that we continue to have a sustainable football club in our community that will be here for your children and grandchildren.

Why pledge?

• Whatever the future ownership of Wigan Athletic, we want to bring our fans together to play a part, have representation on the club board, and HAVE A STRONG VOICE in the future running of our club.

• If no other bidders are successful, it's critical that we are READY TO ACT in order to secure the future of Wigan Athletic. Not just a football club, but an integral part of our community that helps to improve thousands of lives across Wigan.

• Having reached our initial target of £500,000 we are now aiming to push our campaign as far as it can go - with our next target being £750,000. Each pledge will make our voice stronger, and for every pledge of £250 or more YOU will be rewarded with a place in our future.

• We are working with key partners including Wigan Council, Wigan Athletic Community Trust, Jonathan Jackson and other backers to be ready to act to save our club.

• This funding will be used to support the future of the football club with community-ownership and supporter representation and influence at the highest level.

• If we are unable to invest in the football club, all monies from this campaign are refundable. Monies will be held in escrow by Crowdfunder until we are able to invest the money in the club’s future or return all monies.

• It is important to note that these donations are for the club’s FUTURE and that funds from this Crowdfunder will not be used to pay any existing costs.
