The club have donated to Vital Latics three Latics WN1 T-shirts signed by boss Roberto Martinez to give away as prizes, details of the competition and how to win will be announced later in the week, so lets take a look at the press release:

Latics WN1 – Ten out of ten!

Wigan Athletic Football Club have today announced that they are opening a town centre store for supporters to get closer to the Club, purchase official merchandise, buy Barclays Premier League tickets or just drop by!

In conjunction with Retail Partner Vandanel, Latics have taken over a sizeable unit in the Galleries, naming it Latics WN1, for an initial 10-week period taking us into 2010 with a view to having a permanent presence after Christmas.

Following the installation of the shop at the DW Stadium and the revitalised online presence through www.laticsshop.com, the Club are looking to make it easier than ever before to follow the Latics.

To celebrate, home shirts have been reduced by £10 and with more great offers and incentives, Latics WN1 is sure to be a real crowd-pleaser, just like Roberto`s team!

Latics WN1 will open its doors for the first time this Thursday to coincide with the town centre Christmas lights being switched on. It will then be open for all supporters until the end of January before the Club and Vandanel evaluate its success.

The official launch will take place on Monday 23rd November with Roberto Martinez (details via www.latics.tv, purchase online atwww.laticsshop.com or visit the store at the DW Stadium within the Springfield Stand (West) or in Standish Gallery (opposite Marks and Spencer).
