after last summers shambolic hiking of ticket prices at the JJB Stadium Dave Whelan has given in to the pressure from supporters.

In an exclusive interview on The Latics TV Show. Mr Whelan stated that-

Next season the highest ticket price at the JJB Stadium with be 15 regardless of opposition - be that Man Utd/Arsenal/Chelsea or Scunthorpe/Sheff Weds/Norwich.

Season tickets will be the cheapest in the Premiership (should we be there) to new buyers (below 270 if you do 15 x 18games) with them being even cheaper for current season ticket holders.

Wigan Athletic will be challenging for Europe within two seasons.

And there isnt a bigger sporting thrill for him than a day at the JJB watching Premiership football along with thousands of fellow Wiganers getting behind their home town club.

Seem the "Latics are Listening" scheme that the club have been running recently has finally born some fruit.

Thats wat the masses said when Mr Whelan stated, in 1997, "We'll be playing Premiership football within ten years"
