Speaking about the news Head Coach Ian Millward said:

"We are pleased to be the first club to tackle the Dragons in France. It is a very difficult start for us as they will certainly be fired up for their opening fixture, but it is one we as a club are very much looking forward to."

Chairman Maurice Lindsay added:

"It's no surprise to me that we are the first club invited to play in France to usher in the historic entry into Super League of Les Catalans Dragons. Wigan is a well known name in France and the Catalan region in particular. I am sure it will help them to fill their ground and of course, it will be a very tough fixture for us. It will still be winter in the South of France so our fans will miss the warm weather, which many other clubs will enjoy throughout the year. It is still a great honour for us and one we are delighted to be part of."
