THE GROUND

THE DW STADIUM is named after the Wigan owner Dave Whelan. It was formerly known as the JJB Stadium, named after his sports shop chain. It's an all-seater stadium with all 4 stands the same size (and mainly empty!) Away fans are given the North Stand (capacity 5400), although when I went there, Wycombe fans were given a section of a stand along the side. Nearby is an ASDA and also a nearby pub, the Red Robin, though I am unsure what it is like as I have never been in.
