Rejoice, for competitive football shall soon be upon us – tickets for Latics’ pre-season game against Liverpool at the DW Stadium are now on sale.

(Well, they’ve actually been available to purchase for over a week now, but we won`t tell anyone we screwed up if you don’t.)

Jurgen’s Kloppites will soon be arriving in Wigan for the hotly anticipated showpiece friendly, which kicks off Latics’ pre-season fixtures at precisely 7:30pm on Friday 14 July.

(Well, the game will probably start at 7:32pm, but we won’t tell anyone the ref screwed up if you don’t.)

It’ll be the Reds’ second game of their own pre-season and the last before they head off to Hong Kong, Germany and Ireland for a series of friendlies against overseas opposition.

As with the equivalent fixture this time last year, home supporters will initially be allocated the West Stand, with Liverpool supporters initially given the 6888-seat East Stand.

Prices for Latics v Liverpool:

Adults: £15
Under-18s: £10
Under-11s: £5
Under-5s: £2

Hospitality packages are available from £45, with discounts available for 2017-18 seasonal hospitality members.

Vital Latics will be previewing this game more extensively very soon, so keep an eye out for that article – and maybe even a series of articles – looking forward to the Liverpool friendly. But sticklers beware – there’s nothing quite like a Nosey Barstool preview.

(Cue groans.)

More details available on the official Latics site.
