Wigan Athletic Football Club (nicknamed The Latics) are a professional football club based in Wigan, Greater Manchester. They were formed in 1932, following the winding up of Wigan Borough the previous year. Wigan Athletic was the fifth attempt to create a stable football club in the town following the demise of Wigan County, Wigan United, Wigan Town, and Wigan Borough. Springfield Park, the former home of Wigan Borough, was purchased by the club for £2,850. Despite their initial application being turned down, Wigan Athletic were elected into the Chesire County League following the resignation of Manchester Central. Wigan's primary rivals include Chorley, Bolton Wanderers, Blackburn Rovers, Preston North End and Bury. They have been playing their home games at The DW Stadium (called Wigan Athletic Stadium in UEFA matches) since 1999.
