Sale of Wigan FC to a local businessman

Struggling club Wigan Athletic, who was relegated to the English Football League Third Division, announced the sale of local businessman Mike Danson today, Wednesday.

Wigan said in a statement that all required approvals have been obtained from the English Football League to acquire 100 percent of the club, and funds have been paid into its accounts to cover all outstanding debts.

“I am delighted to own Wigan Athletic Football Club. I was born and raised in Wigan and the city is close to my heart,” said new owner Danson.

Wigan, who were relegated from the Premier League in 2013 the same year they won the FA Cup, failed to pay wages on time on several separate occasions last season as they finished bottom of the Second Division.

Danson added, “We have worked hard to provide the League with a realistic financial plan to stabilize operations. We look forward to a fresh start for the club and planning for next season.”
