Game Day Experience
Wigan Warriors pre-match entertainment is widely recognised among the best in Super League.
A host of activity can be seen in and around the DW Stadium ahead of a Warriors game. Large numbers of fans regularly arrive at the stadium a few hours in advance to enjoy the pre-match entertainment.
The Warriors Showcase Stage, Supporters Bar, Max’s Club and official Club Shop are just a few of the regular highlights. Whilst inside the stadium, live bands, themed shows, tenors, the Warrior Girls, Max, spectacular displays, fireworks, crowd interaction and much much more create a pre-match entertainment extravaganza like no other.
Warriors Showcase Stage
Wigan Warriors are delighted to showcase some of Wigan’s up and coming local musical talent.
Wigan has long had a strong and varied music scene and local artists of all genres can frequently be seen on the Showcase Stage behind the South Stand from around an hour before kick-off at selected home games.
Andy Unsworth, Showcase Stage Organiser said,
“I’ve been aware for some time that there’s been an explosion of young bands and talented musicians in the Wigan and surrounding areas. We have given these bands a vehicle on which to broadcast their talent to a wider audience. We hope to showcase as much of this local talent as we possibly can for the rest of this season and beyond.”
If you are part of a local band and would like to appear on the Wigan Warriors Showcase Stage get in touch with us - firstname.lastname@example.org
