Whelan family to sell majority share in Wigan Athletic
sbo bz sbobetSky Sports News understands the Whelan family have agreed a deal in principle to sell their majority stake at Wigan Athletic to a Hong Kong-based consortium. The proposed deal with International Entertainment Corporation would require ratification by both the Hong Kong Stock Exchange and EFL.
The Whelan family have been majority shareholders at Wigan since 1995, overseeing the club's rise to the Premier League and FA Cup final win in 2013. Former chairman Dave Whelan funded the building of the 25,000 capacity DW Stadium (initially named the JJB Stadium) which opened in 1999 and is also home to Wigan Warriors rugby league team. sbo bz sbobet
Whelan owned both the Warriors and Wigan Athletic until 2007 when he sold the Super League side to current majority shareholder Ian Lenagan. Wigan secured the League One title and a return to the Championship with a win at Doncaster last weekend. sbo bz sbobet
