Wigan Warriors Fan Engagement Board has put together some new ideas for flags, thanks to the artist and Wigan fan, Rolf Zaugg. The current flags at the DW Stadium have become synonymous with attending rugby games at the stadium. Although many sit proudly at the top of the South Stand, we would like to update and refresh these and also look at where else in the stadium, they can be added.
We are looking for fans to vote on their favourite design, of which flags they would like to appear at the DW Stadium in the near future. The vote will decide on the order in which the flags will be purchased and made for the stadium.
The intention is for the new flags to sit, proudly in position ahead of the Warriors’ return to the DW Stadium, hopefully later in the year.
The number of flags that are made, will be dependent on the success of the fan led, crowdfunding appeal which will follow the vote and overseen by the Wigan Warriors Fan Engagement Board. We will set targets within the crowdfunding to clearly indicate the level at which each flag will be purchased.
For every £150 raised via crowdfunder.co.uk – a new 10ft x 6ft flag can be purchased and added to the DW Stadium.
The vote will close on Friday 7th August 2020 at 11am. The final position of the voting will be shared and that will form the order in which the flags will be purchased, starting with the design that has the most votes.
