Wigan Warriors’ DW Stadium hit by vandals

Wigan Warriors’ DW Stadium has been hit by vandals for the third time in 2021.

Wigan Today has revealed that numerous windows have been smashed on the glass frontage, with the criminal damage believed to have taken place last Sunday evening.

A stadium spokesperson said: “We were disappointed that the DW Stadium was again subject to vandalism on Sunday, and we have reported the damage to the police.

“Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time the stadium has been subject to this kind of vandalism in the past 12 months, which is especially frustrating as we continue to look to invest in improvements to the stadium.”

A window was smashed in November 2020, but that wasn’t the first time it had happened as a hefty bill had to be picked up in January that year with vandals costing the club tens of thousands of pounds in repairs.

The DW Stadium was again targeted in July last year, with the venue having a bizarre target on its head.

Wigan Warriors have been approached for comment by Serious About Rugby League.

Anyone with information is asked to ring the police on 101 or the freephone Crimestoppers line anonymously on 0800 555111.
