Wigan Warriors and Sean O'Loughlin have today unveiled even more activities that will take place THIS SATURDAY at the joint Fan Day at Wigan RUFC.
Already announced is the Legends game between Wigan Warriors and St Helens which kicks off at 5pm and will feature a guest appearance by Jason Robinson and be coached by Frank Endacott as well as top local band Boomin' who will be performing live from 7pm.
With gates opening at 1.30pm the Warriors First Team Squad will be in attendance to meet fans and sign autographs between 2-3pm, whilst the U20's fixture between Wigan and Bradford Bulls has been moved to Wigan RUFC to kick off at 3pm and take its role in the Fan Day.
The Warriors Community Foundation team will be running skills and game drills between 2.30-3.30pm for young rugby players, whilst fans will be able to have their photograph taken with the Challenge Cup between 3-4pm in the last opportunity before it is returned to the RFL next week.
Also present throughout the day will be a mini fun fair and bouncy castles, face painters and a Warriors World shop, as well as food and drinks kiosks and licensed bars.
Parking on site is limited to disabled supporters and they need to contact the DW Stadium Ticket Office on 0871 66-33-552 before the day to request a reserved space. Alternative parking is available at the Cherry Garden's pub, on Leyland Mill Lane and Hall Lane.
Speaking about the event Sean said:
"We have now released full details about the event and I hope everyone is as excited as me.
"It should be a great day and hopefully the sun will stay out so that fans and friends can come and join us for a full day of fun.
"Advanced ticket sales are approaching the 1,000 mark but people can also pay on the day. Hopefully I'll see everyone down there on Saturday."
Tickets are now on sale for the event priced at just £7 for adults and £4 for juniors with a family ticket for two adults and two juniors available for just £20.
