Wigan Athletic Have Gone Into Administration

Wigan Athletic Have Gone Into Administration

Wigan Athletic has gone into administration following the 'significant impact of the coronavirus', with the club now fighting for survival.

The Latics, who currently sit 14th in the Championship table with 50 points from 40 games, now face a 12-point deduction under EFL rules, which would take them to the bottom of the league ladder.

Paul Stanley, of Begbies Traynor, said: "We understand that everybody connected with the club and the wider football world is seeking clarity on the future of Wigan Athletic.

"That's exactly what we are seeking to provide as we move through this process and we seek out interested parties to rescue this famous old club here in the region. It is a fast-moving situation and we will provide updates on key developments."

Gerald Krasner, who is the joint administrator, added: "Our immediate objectives are to ensure the club completes all its fixtures this season and to urgently find interested parties to save Wigan Athletic FC and the jobs of the people who work for the club.

"Obviously the suspension of the Championship season due to Covid-19 has had a significant impact on the recent fortunes of the club.

"Wigan Athletic has been a focal point and source of pride for the town since 1932 and anyone who is interested in buying this historic sporting institution should contact the joint administrators directly."

Let's hope the club can find a solution soon.
