2022/23 Wigan Athletic Home Shirt
Wigan Athletic’s 2022/23 Puma home shirt gave a one-of-a-kind interpretation of its bespoke striped look in blue and white. Aside from having a gradient blue-to-white finish towards the topmost portion, the jersey coloured the stripes with a darker tone of blue and further designed them with inner pinstripes. The blue round collar and sleeve cuffs harmonised well with the shirt’s white sections, the sleeves and the area in-between the neckline and the chest.
2021/22 Wigan Athletic Home Shirt
Wigan Athletic players wore a Puma home shirt for the 2021/22 season. It contained a relatively simple design of broad vertical stripes in blue and white, with complementary expansive shoulder panels in white and a blue rear-end for the round collar. The stripes here were a touch wider than the profile of the bespoke pattern on the previous season’s home shirt.
2020/21 Wigan Athletic Home Shirt
Puma returned the blue and white stripes design of Wigan Athletic’s home shirt for the 2020/21 season. The relatively large stripes formed vertically along the main body that was flanked by blue sleeves. The shoulders had a white panel that extended to the blue sleeves. A narrow blue collar filled the round neckline up until the seam of the shoulder panels.

2022/23 Wigan Athletic Away Shirt
Wigan’s 2022/23 Puma away had a black base with a tonal honeycomb pattern on the main body, with minimal yellow accents for more emphasis. The sleeves were left plain black, and the round collar and sleeve cuffs shared the same yellow colouring.
2021/22 Wigan Athletic Away Shirt
Wigan Athletic’s 2021/22 Puma away shirt was red, lighter on the body and sleeves and darker on the cuffs and the buttoned henley collar. The all-over subtle geometric pattern was a template based on the kit maker’s teamwear design.
2020/21 Wigan Athletic Away Shirt
Wigan Athletic’s 2020/21 away kit followed a similar template used by Puma with their home kit. The sleeves were solid coloured, and the narrow collar on the round neckline stopped at the shoulder panels. The said panels then extended up to the sleeves. Colourwise, the away shirt was black on the sleeves and collar, while the shoulder panels and the ribbed honeycomb graphic on the front body were grey.
Wigan Athletic, nicknamed the Latics were formed in 1932. They made it into the Football League in 1978 as Northern League Champions, but it took twenty five years to bust out of the lower leagues and two promotions in three years saw the team make it to the Premiership, were they made an impressive start to the debut season.
Much of this was made possible by the funding of the club by former Blackburn Rovers player, Dave Whelan, who broke his leg in the 1960 FA Cup final and the managerial skills of Paul Jewell and Roberto Martinez.
In the 2012/13 season, Wigan Athletic scored a huge upset and won the F.A. Cup against favourites Manchester City. However, they failed to avoid Premier League relegation, making them the first club to win the F.A. Cup and be relegated in the same season.
