Away Supporters

Mark Hughes’s journey as Southampton First Team Manager begins in Wigan on Sunday and his side will be backed by 4,283 supporters.

Getting there by car

From the South, exit the M6 at Junction 25.  At the end of the slip road (approx. 1 mile) turn left, sign-posted Wigan A49.  Continue past Sainsbury's and cross the roundabout, 2nd exit.  Follow signs for Wigan A49 for 1.2 miles to Saddle roundabout.  

At the Saddle roundabout, take first exit sign-posted Standish A49 into Robin Park Road, driving past the ASDA superstore.  Follow signs for DW Stadium.

The DW Stadium has 2,000 car parking spaces located around the stadium. Supporters are asked to refrain from using the Robin Retail Park, cinema, Asda and B&Q car parks as these are not official car parks. Supporters who use these car parks are at risk of being clamped and fined. 

Please note due to The Run Wigan Festival, Scot Lane, Woodhouse Lane and Stadium Way will be closed between 9am and 10:45am. Car Parks at the back of the DW Stadium will be accessible via Frith Street.

Getting there by train

Wigan is served by two railway stations (almost opposite each other on Wallgate in Wigan), Wigan Northern Western and Wigan Wallgate. 

Wigan North Western is on the West coast main line with links to Liverpool while Wigan Wallgate is used for regional services to Manchester, Southport and Liverpool (via Kirkby). 

Taxis are available from outside Wigan North Western station which approximate 1.4 miles away from the DW Stadium. A taxi to the DW Stadium should cost approximately £5 from Wigan North Western station.
