Classic combination – Northern Soul and Wigan Athletic

Northern Soul Keep the Faith

Latics have put together the classic combination of Northern Soul music and Championship football for their next home fixture versus Norwich City on Saturday 6th December.

The club have developed a Latics Tracks feature this season to highlight the Northern Soul history of Wigan and this special Northern Soul supporters event will take place prior to the Norwich City fixture.

The Players Car Park in the South East corner of the DW Stadium will play host to a fantastic event including a stage for supporters to relive the moves from back in the day, local soul DJ Dickie Ashcroft spinning the decks, an outdoor bar with lager, cider, bitter and soft drinks and the chance to buy superb home-made Lancashire Hotpot.

The event is completely free of charge, but with a limit of 500 attendees at any one time so we advise an early arrival. Gates open from midday and the event will close at kick off at 3.00pm.

Match tickets for the game are on sale from £20 for Adults and £5 for Under 16s.

You can buy your match tickets now by telephone, at the ticket office or on

Don’t miss out on this great footy and music combo.

    you know what Im going to say. Better put on a few ambulances as well if people are going for the back drops. Slipped discs and whatnot. It was all so very long ago. Sounds great though, and Im sure the Casino received some kind of accolade from the states this year.
