Introducing a newly refurbished DW Stadium

By will adams -

It’s official! DW Stadium, home to Wigan Athletic & Wigan Warriors has had a £1m refurbishment, boasting modern hospitality, conference, and event spaces. The stadium received a spectacular renovation, a brand-new sports bar, and an upgrade on furniture.  

Located in the heart of the North West of England, DW Stadium is a very versatile venue for conference and events. In addition to 11 flexible meeting and event rooms that can accommodate 5 to 500 guests, the stadium offers plenty of outdoor space that can be adapted to suit the needs of your event. The refurbishment and upgrades to the suites represent the commitment to our guests and the wider Wigan community.  

A notable highlight of the venue upgrades is a new sports bar renamed in honour of Wigan Athletic’s former owner, Dave Whelan. Whelan's Sports Bar offers hot and cold snacks, plus alcoholic favourites, and a traditional English brew. On 27th July, Dave Whelan christened his namesake bar at an exclusive launch event.  

The popular DW Sports fitness lounge has also been transformed into an exclusive venue equipped with state-of-the-art AV and a sophisticated sound system. Hosting up to 500 people, it benefits from its own private entrance on the ground floor.  

The Chairman’s Club which boasts a birds-eye view of all the action, has been renovated and now offers a premium experience for up to 100 people on matchdays and beyond. Guests looking for pitch-side views will also love the transformed Phoenix Lounge. Along with the extensive upgrades, DW Stadium’s Executive Head Chef, Roger Varley, has created tantalising new premium menus and is available to create bespoke offers too.
