Game Day Experience
We pride ourselves in creating a vibrant, exciting and inclusive pre-game experience for all of our fans, so why not come along a few hours early and enjoy the fun?
A host of activities for all the family can be enjoyed in and around the DW Stadium ahead of a Warriors game.
The Warriors Showcase Stage, Fan Village Supporters Bar, Max’s Club and official Club Shop are just a few of the regular highlights. Whilst inside the stadium, live bands, themed shows, tenors, the Warrior Girls, Max, spectacular displays, fireworks, crowd interaction and much, much more create a pre-match experience worthy of the main event.
Warriors World – the Club’s official store – opens at the DW Stadium on a matchday two hours before kick-off.
Why not head down and pick up the latest shirt, hat, scarf or flag to add colour to the stands while the Warriors go into battle.
The Warriors World store is open seven days a week at the Grand Arcade and 24-hours a day online. Visit the online store CLICK HERE
Soak up the pre-match atmosphere in our Fan Village, located to the south-west of the DW stadium.
Every game day our Fan Village is bursting with tasty food and drinks stalls and pre-math entertainment to get the excitement pumping ahead of kick-off.
Craft beers, street food vendors, live music and big screen entertainment and more; the Fan Village has something for all the family each and every game day.
South Stand Supporters Bar
The South Stand Supporters Bar is located in the Lounge beneath the South Stand at the DW Stadium.
On matchdays, the South Stand Lounge is the Warriors Supporters Bar, and is a great setting to relax, enjoy a drink and chat about all the action before the game.
The bar opens approximately two hours before kick-off. Entrance is FREE for season ticket holders on production of a valid season ticket card and £1 for all other fans (access is strictly on a first come, first served basis with priority given to season ticket holders).
In the bar, our MC for the night will keep you informed of the latest information, play a mixture of videos and music, give you the team news, and point you in the right direction for matchday programme sales, Golden Gamble tickets and raffle tickets. The South Stand Lounge also has delicious hot food on sale, themed differently every week.
Approximately 30 minutes after the game, a member of the Coaching Staff will enter the lounge to speak to one of the current first team players to get his thoughts on the game.
Community Club Festivals
U7s to U9s who love to play as much as watch have the opportunity to show off their skills in our Community Club Festivals!
Our rugby festivals give children the chance to take to the Robin Park Arena field just next door before the first team action kicks off in the DW Stadium.
All players also take part in a half-time team photo and receive a commemorative certificate to take home!
Warriors Showcase Stage
Wigan Warriors are delighted to showcase some of Wigan’s up and coming local musical talent.
Wigan has a strong and varied music scene and we like to celebrate this by giving local artists the chance to perform on the Showcase Stage. This can be found behind the South Stand and acts start from around an hour before kick-off at selected home games.
Andy Unsworth, Showcase Stage Organiser said,
I’ve been aware for some time that there’s been an explosion of young bands and talented musicians in the Wigan and surrounding areas. We have given these bands a vehicle on which to broadcast their talent to a wider audience. We hope to showcase as much of this local talent as we possibly can for the rest of this season and beyond.
If you are part of a local band and would like to appear on the Wigan Warriors Showcase Stage get in touch with us - email@example.com
