Confirmed! Latics v Mallorca Sunday 5th August



Wigan Athletic have confirmed what we published yesterday that Real Mallorca will be at the DW Stadium this Sunday (5th) to provide the opposition in a preseason friendly for Roberto's men.

The official press release from the Latics, sent to Vital reads: Wigan Athletic will take on Spanish outfit Real Mallorca at the DW Stadium on Sunday August 5 with a 4.00pm kick off in their traditional home pre-season friendly match, it was confirmed today.

The match will be Latics' fifth of the pre-season period, currently boasting an unbeaten record following a win and two draws out in Austria last week, prior to their trip to Celta Vigo on Sunday August 12.

Mallorca, coached by Joaquin Caparros, finished in 8th position in last season's La Liga just three points outside of a Europa League qualification place, and reached the quarter finals of the Copa del Rey.

Roberto Martinez said:

'Mallorca will represent a really good test as they are on the back of a tremendous second half to the season finishing eighth in La Liga, and (Joaquin) Caparros has developed a really strong side to play against and a very talented team with an exciting future.

'Their defensive record is very impressive and they are a very well balanced group which will present the perfect exercise for both teams in this pre-season.'


Entrance to the game is payable on the gate with Adult tickets priced at £10.00 and concessions £5.00, with only the Springfield/West Stand being opened.

Now we await the official announcement of the signing of defender Ivan Ramis from Real Mallorca

Latics v Latics - Big Game Preview

The new pitch has been laid, marked and hovered in time for the visit of Oldham Athletic in what could be a very significant League 1 clash.

If results go our way, come 5pm tonight we could find ourselves in second spot in the league table, a position that would set us up nicely for next week's clash with promotion rivals Walsall, but let's not get ahead of ourselves.

The last time I was thinking like this with full on confidence was prior to the Blackpool game in December, what a
