The kick-off time for Sunday’s St George’s Day clash with Wakefield Trinity will be delayed by five minutes and will now kick off at 3.05pm.
The kick-off is being delayed as it coincides with the government’s testing of the national alert system that will send an alarm to every mobile phone in the UK with a 4G or 5G signal.
The short delay will allow supporters to witness a rather unique moment with potentially more than 10,000 phones in the DW Stadium simultaneously sounding the alarm.
Sunday’s game will see the Club celebrate St George’s Day with lots of fun for all the family lined up at Robin Park Arena in the fan village, before the Warriors look to extend their five game winning streak on the field at the DW Stadium.
Wigan come into the game after two huge wins over the Super League and World Champions St Helens and the League Leaders Warrington Wolves.
They are now just two points off top spot and take on a Wakefield side they battered in Round Two.
Trinity are still without a win and have been nilled in five games and in seven of their nine games have scored one try or less.
Thus, Wigan will be hoping to make more noise than just the alarm from the government.
