Wigan Athletic’s first game in the 2013/14 Championship season will be against Barnsley on Saturday 3rd August. Owen Coyle’s men will be looking to make a bright start at Oakwell before they take a short break from the Championship to face Premier League Champions Manchester United at Wembley in the Charity Shield on Sunday 11th August. Latics then travel to Bournemouth on Saturday 17th August and are at home to Doncaster on Tuesday 20th August.
There will be several local derbies to look forward to, with Bolton (H) 14/12/13 (A) 29/03/14, Blackburn (H) 05/10/13 (A) 03/05/14, Blackpool (H) 26/04/14 (A) 19/10/13, and Burnley (H) 29/12/13 (A) 21/04/14. Plus new grounds for many Latics fans to visit at Brighton’s Falmer Stadium, Doncaster’s Keepmoat Stadium and Yeovil’s Huish Park.
Following their incredible FA Cup success the Latics will be playing in the Europa League on Thursday nights, so it is likely that the Championship games in European weeks will be played on Sundays.
