Due to the Covid-19 crisis WIgan Athletic FC was put into administration today 1 July 2020.
Administrators Begbies Taylor are now looking for someone to buy this well supported football club.
This will no doubt come as a shock to not only Wigan fans but to many other football clubs around the UK.
Wigan will continue to operate as a football club for the time being and will complete this season, if no one comes in to save the club it will be no more.
The league rules mean that WIgan will now have a 12 points deducted from this season leaving them at the bottom of the table, however not by much and could easily come out of the relegation zone.
No reaction has been seen on the Wigan website or on social media just yet although expect a statement from the club very soon.
