It is also ideally positioned on the crossroads of the main West Coast and cross country railway lines, whilst Manchester and Liverpool airports are only a short car ride away.

BEFORE THE GAME
You may have many questions about arriving at the DW Stadium before you take your seats for the game.
The best meeting points are outside the two Ticket Offices, which are located in opposite corners.
- The Main Ticket Office is located in the North West corner of the stadium, between the away supporters (north) stand and main corporate (west) stand. This is also located close to the attractions around the restaurants and cinema complex.
- A secondary Ticket Office is located in the South East corner of the stadium, closest to the Fan Village, players car park, Car Parks 3 & 4 and walking route into Wigan Town Centre.
Max’s Matchday Club
For families with children Max’s Matchday Club is the ideal place to visit before the game. It is hosted in the North Stand Marquee and provides fun, games and entertainment for families (and a bar for parents) in a quiet area away from the hustle and bustle outside the stadium.

Where Should I Sit?
The DW Stadium has 4 distinct seating areas.
- The South Stand provides unreserved seating behind the goal posts, so once you enter the stand fans can sit wherever they want. This is also where most of the atmosphere is generated from, particularly at the back of blocks S2 and S3.
- The East Stand is located opposite the tunnel down the side of the pitch and provides comfortable and affordable seating.
- The North Stand is behind the goals and for most games provides seating for supporters of the opponents; however, Rugby League is a family sport and doesn’t operate a segregation policy, allowing all fans to sit together if they desire.
- The West Stand is the Main stand and offers all corporate hospitality areas. It also contains the Main Reception and players changing area and tunnel. Regular seating is available in the outer sections of this stand.
The DW Stadium is a family stadium and therefore doesn’t have a specific family section, however families visiting for the first time are recommended to sit in the East Stand.
How Can I Meet the Players?
Rugby League players are renowned for being very open and accessible. They generally arive about two hours before kick off and park in their own designated Car Park in the South East corner of the Stadium. Fans can meet the players for photographs and autographs as they walk from the Car Park to the stadium.
After the game the players conduct a lap of honour to thank fans for their support during the game. This finishes as they walk down the tunnel and players often stop to sign autographs for fans seated in the front rows in the southerly end of the West Stand.
