On Saturday 13 August 2011 Wigan Robin Park Football Club were due to play Rochdale Town away in the North West Counties League.

However because of a rugby function taking place at Rochdale’s shared ground that day the game has been switched to the Robin Park Arena.

The Robins home league fixtures are always scheduled when Wigan Athletic are away for logistical reasons – due to the proximity of the two grounds – and for the supporters of both clubs that like to watch each others home games.


However with Latics playing Norwich City that day in the opening fixture of the Premier League season the Robins have taken the decision to kick-off their game at 1pm.

They are inviting all Wigan Athletic season ticket holders and Wigan Athletic and Norwich City match ticket holders to their game prior to the 3pm kick-off at the DW Stadium.


The modern all-seated Robin Park Arena has excellent facilities, the best playing surface in the area and is child-friendly. There will be hot and cold snacks and drinks available with the bar open prior to and throughout the game.

Admission is £5 (£2.50 concessions) and the usual high-quality glossy programme will available along with other merchandise.


The Robin Park Arena is situated 50 metres from the DW Stadium (150 metres from the South Stand)
