Wigan Athletic will be celebrating their eighth consecutive season in the English Premier League next season with a brand new home kit designed and manufactured by MIFIT.
The Latics will be playing in the new home kit for the first time this Sunday when they play their final home match of the season against Wolverhampton Wanderers. The shirt will be available to buy as early as Saturday, May 12 in the Wigan club shop.
According to Wigan Athletic, “The new home kit [is] a return to blue and white vertical stripes, with a plain blue rear. The stripes are synonymous with our first season as a League club and also our first season in the Premier League but the shirt is also a nod in the direction of the ‘braces’ kit worn in our first Northern Premier League season in 1968.”
“As we celebrate 80 years as a football club it is a great shirt that combines different designs from our history.”
