Norwich City set for huge away following at Wigan Athletic

27 March 2019

Norwich City are delighted to confirm the ticket allocation for our forthcoming Sky Bet Championship clash at Wigan Athletic on Sunday, April 14 (noon kick-off) has sold out, with 5,300 tickets purchased.

Tickets for the match went on sale under the points system from March 19, and after going on general sale the remaining seats were snapped up within hours, therefore making the Yellow Army at the DW Stadium our biggest away following of the 2018-19 season.

The Club negotiated with Wigan both an increased allocation for the game as well as a reduced ticket price, but was also pleased to announce a further subsidy for half-price match tickets and reduced coach travel to say a huge thank you to its loyal away following this season.

As Daniel Farke and the players have said throughout this year the backing they have received has made such a difference to the team on the road this campaign.

Chief Operating Officer Ben Kensell said: “We’re overwhelmed to have received such phenomenal support from our fans with this ticket initiative. I know having spoken to Stuart and Daniel and heard from the players themselves that the support we receive does make such a massive difference to the team.

"To get what should be our biggest away following of the season, and our largest in the league since March 2004 when we took 7,781 to Crystal Palace, for what is another vitally important game is just great - and testament to our great supporters.

“We’d like to thank Wigan Athletic for their support and collaboration with this, as it’s something that they didn’t have to assist us with, so we are grateful to them for their help.

“But we also have to acknowledge the support and commitment of Delia and Michael and the Board for allowing the Club to subsidise what is tens of thousands of pounds in ticketing sales. But they saw this as a meaningful way for the Club to show its gratitude to those who regularly support us at such great distances across the country.”

He added: “We will also have 25 coaches travelling to Wigan on the day, which is wonderful and thanks and respect must again go to all those fans who will be getting up very early to leave Carrow Road at 5am in the morning to be there to get behind the boys! We’re thrilled with the support this initiative has received and that so many people can be there for such a crucial match.”
