Fresh takeover update emerges at Wigan Athletic



The Phoenix 2021 consortium is expected to take over at Wigan Athletic within the next 24 hours, according to a report from Sky Sports.

Turbulent is not a good enough word to realistically describe what the last 12 months have been like for the Latics but it appears at least we are now getting towards some good news for the club.

As per the report, Bahrain businessman Tamal Mubarak Al-Hammad, the lead of the consortium, will take over the League One club while Mal Brannigan will be installed as the new CEO at the Latics, with him doing similar jobs at Dundee United and Dundalk in the past.

Earlier on this month we saw Wigan announce that an agreement to sell to Phoenix 2021 had been reached, subject to EFL approval, and it now appears that the test has been passed with things drawing to a close.

The Verdict

This is positive news for Wigan.

They get a bit more stability off of the field and that provides direction and certainly for everyone linked with the club.

The Latics still find themselves in the midst of a League One relegation battle, of course, but at least they now know whatever happens this season there will still be a club to go back to in the 2021/22 campaign.
