Crew to Host Wigan Athletic

FA Cup Champion Wigan Athletic announced today that they will be traveling to the United States this summer for training. They are scheduled to take on the Crew Saturday, July 13th.

News via Wigan's official site:

Owen Coyle’s men will now be facing MLS side Columbus Crew at the Crew Stadium on Saturday July 13 and 3rd Division side Pittsburgh Riverhounds at the Highmark Stadium on July 19. A further game could also be scheduled within the ten day trip Stateside.

Coyle said: “The opportunity came up for us to go to the States and was too good for us to turn down.

“The players will love the facilities over there which are first class and it is a great way for us to begin our pre-season preparation in readiness for August 3.”

Always exciting for me when an English side comes to Columbus. Wigan had one of the more memorable seasons of any Premier League club this year. It will be great to catch them here in town.
