Capable of hosting around 25,000 in an all-seater configuration, the ground is one of the biggest stadiums in the Super League and whilst that can sometimes prove to be a problem for smaller matches as the atmosphere can be poor, that certainly won’t be the case in this one.
For this local derby, the stands will be packed and that is when the ground really comes into its own as the steeply banked terraces keep fans close to the action, which only aids the atmosphere.
As will a big following from the Leopards, which will also come together to create a perfect setting for the stars on the field to give their best performances and deliver a fantastic 80 minutes of Rugby League action.
Both 2 clubs are based in the Borough of Wigan and with only around 8 miles between the 2 stadiums, this is one of the closest rivalries in the sport.
That adds extra importance to the match no matter how well either side are playing and no matter what is on the line in the game.
Only a win will do for both clubs as the pride of the borough is on the line.
