Description: DW Stadium

The ground was built in 1999 at a cost of around Ł30 mln. From the start it was planned to accommodate both the football side Wigan Athletic and rugby team Wigan Warriors. Four stands without corners were raised with roof thruses - most distinctive feature of the stadium - being supported at the cornersides. For the first decade of existance JJB sports store chain was the main sponsor and after the company's name changed, so did the one of the stadium's.
