Game Day Experience
Wigan Warriors’ pre-match entertainment is widely recognised among the best in Super League.
A host of activity can be seen in and around the DW Stadium ahead of a Warriors game. Large numbers of fans regularly arrive at the stadium a few hours in advance to enjoy the pre-match entertainment.
The Robin Park Arena Fan Zone, 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 more create a pre-match entertainment extravaganza like no other.
Robin Park Arena Fan Zone
The Robin Park Arena Fan Zone takes place before and after every Wigan Warriors home fixture at the adjacent Robin Park Arena, and is the perfect place to soak up the match day atmosphere before kick-off at the DW Stadium.
The indoor venue boasts a large capacity, great food, multiple drinks options and a mix of entertainment options that begin up to three hours before kick-off (check the club’s website and social media updates before each game for confirmed timings).
Fans also have the chance to rub shoulders with some of the first team. So, whether you want to grab a selfie or bag a signature, the Robin Park Arena Fan Zone is certainly worth the visit. Here’s what you can expect:
- The Fan Zone Stage – Playing music throughout the pre-match build-up and often post-match too, plus interactive challenges and quizzes for supporters to get involved with.
- Wigan Warriors first team live Q&A on stage, pre and post-match.
- Kingfisher Bar – Serving alcoholic and non-alcoholic refreshments including Kingfisher beer, cider and Mini Vino wine.
- Gin Bar - Sample some exquisite flavours from our eclectic range of gins.
- Meet Mighty Max – The Wigan Warriors mascot drops by to meet fans ahead of kick-off.
- Warrior Girls – A performance from the Club’s cheerleaders.
Warriors World – the Club’s official store – opens at Robin Park Arena each matchday, no later than two hours before kick-off.

South Stand Supporters Bar
The South Stand Supporters Bar is located in the lounge beneath the South Stand at the DW Stadium.
On match day, the South Stand Lounge is the Warriors Supporters Bar and is a great setting to relax beforehand and the ideal place to enjoy a drink and chat about all the action after 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 great hot food on sale, with a different theme each 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.
Max’s Matchday Club
Max, our mighty Warrior mascot, hosts his own club in the Marquee, under the North Stand, ahead of every Warriors game.
Children of all ages are welcome to come and join in the fun and games, enter free prize draws, meet Wigan players and be in with a chance of being the official Wigan mascot at the next home game.
Max’s Matchday Club is open to families and children and opens approximately two hours before the game.
