COM Stadium wouldn't have sold out (it holds 53.5K), but it would have attracted a bigger crowd than DW Stadium.

DW got to 20K pretty quickly, sales have only slowed down because only the less popular parts of the venue are available. It possibly would have got to 30K relatively easily, though I can understand why Wigan would rather play at DW.

Where are the days when Wigan attracted 37k vs Manly @ central park in 1987. This record by Wigan will never beaten.

It’s asking a lot for Wigan fans to be expected to traipse over to Manchester in winter for a night game.

I think if the DW held 30k they could easily have sold it out but unfortunately it doesn’t and neither does any other stadium close by like Bolton for example.
