EFL statement: Wigan Athletic

30 March 2021

Wigan Athletic’s administrators have today concluded all outstanding matters in respect of the change of control required to formally place the Club under new ownership.

Following the completion of the transfer of assets to Phoenix 21 alongside the new ownership and management team meeting the requirements of EFL Regulations, the Club is no longer in administration and the notice of withdrawal, issued as per the EFL’s insolvency policy, has been cancelled.

EFL CEO Trevor Birch said: “This has undoubtedly been a challenging and difficult period for everyone connected to Wigan Athletic, particularly the management, players and staff who have had to endure the uncertain circumstances associated with going into administration during a global pandemic.

“We are pleased that matters have been finally resolved for the Club, its fan-base and the local Wigan community who can now look to the future with a renewed sense of optimism.

“Everyone at the EFL wishes the new ownership the very best of luck and looks forward to working with them for the remainder of the 2020/21 campaign and beyond.”
