Wigan Warriors are today delighted to announce details of their final league game of the season, against Crusaders RL at the DW Stadium on Friday 9th September, which will be the Wigan RL Heritage Day.

The Heritage Day will see the Club celebrate and reminisce about its illustrious history by inviting past players to a private reunion at the DW Stadium before kick off. These players will then be introduced to the crowd before forming a guard of honour to welcome the current team onto the pitch before kick off.

Warriors Marketing Director Simon Collinson said,

"We initially trialled the concept at the last game of 2010 and it was warmly received by past and current players. Having taken inspiration from the NRL we have expanded this concept for our game against the Crusaders and will be running a number of new initiatives as part of the Day.

"I would like to give special thanks to the Wigan RL Past Players Association who have supported our efforts. We hope that this event will be something that all members of the ‘Warriors Family' will enjoy."

Depending on results over the coming weeks the match could see the Warriors looking to secure the League Leaders Shield for a second successive year, whilst Crusaders will compete in their final ever game in the Super League.

The game will also see the Club working with numerous businesses to offer ticket discounts to their employees for the North Stand. The initiative has previously been used in 2010 at Wigan's St George's Day celebration when over 18,500 fans packed into the DW Stadium. Any local businesses interested in purchasing group tickets for this game should contact Paul MacLeod on 01942 770463.

Regular match tickets for the Heritage Day are now on sale via the DW Stadium Ticket Office, online at Warriors E-Tickets and by calling 0871 66-33-552.

Any past players who would like further information regarding the Heritage Day can contact Paul MacLeod at
