Martin McLoughlin, Wigan Warriors Marketing and Community Director: “As a Club we feel it is only right that we recognise the efforts of all those people who are heavily involved in our Armed Forces on the eve of Armed Forces Day on Saturday 29th June at our home clash against Salford Red Devils on Friday evening. We are urge as many as people who qualify for a ticket to take up the offer and join us for what should be another hugely entertaining fixture at the DW Stadium.”

This free ticket can be claimed by personnel visiting the DW Stadium on a Monday to Friday (9am-5pm) or on the day of the game itself from the main Ticket Office, which will open three hours before kick-off.
