Lenegan calls for fan support during challenging time

Wigan Warriors chairman Ian Lenegan has called for Warriors fans to help the club during this challenging time.

The RFL confirmed on Monday that rugby league would be suspended at all levels until 3rd April. It was decided at a meeting in Huddersfield, which Lenagan was present at.

Lenagan said: “At this time of great uncertainty across the world, our sport’s number one priority has to be the safety and wellbeing of everyone within our communities.

“We were party to this decision and fully supportive the measures decided.

“Whilst the postponement of a large number of fixtures across the competition will present a logistical challenge like we’ve never seen before, we trust that everyone connected to both Wigan Warriors and Betfred Super League will understand the reasoning behind this stance.

“Suspending the competition will add an element of certainty to our planning in a period that is otherwise filled with uncertainty and we will now take the appropriate steps to internally review all of our daily activities, our financial plans and implement a working schedule that ensures maximum protection for those within the club and everyone connected to it.

“The support of our loyal fan-base will be crucial in what will be a challenging period for our sport, club and community and we’ll be looking to engage them as much as possible in the upcoming weeks.”

The club have also confirmed their club shop and ticket office would remain open until further notice.
