Wigan Warriors

Wigan Warriors are a professional rugby league club based in Wigan, Greater Manchester, England. The team currently plays in the Super League. Their coach is currently Brian Noble who made the move to the Warriors on 20th April 2006 following over a week of speculation on his future at his former club Bradford Bulls.

The team's players wear cherry and white hooped shirts with white or red shorts, and play at the JJB Stadium. The club is owned by Dave Whelan, who also owns Wigan Athletic F.C. and JJB Sports.

Wigan's fans are also as 'the pie eaters' this may be a reference to the 1926 general strike when Wigan miners were forced to eat 'humble pie' and return to work before miners in other towns, even though they had been on strike before the other towns joined in. [1]. Alternatively the name 'pie eaters' may have been in circulation prior to this and 'humble' was simply added to it. Wigan's academy has produced some of the greatest ever rugby league players and some of their players have gone on to play rugby union. Having won both the Championship a record 18 times and the Challenge Cup a record 17 times, they are one of the most successful rugby league clubs in English history. Since the advent of the Super League, such success has been elusive, although they were Super League champions in 1998 and Challenge Cup winners in 2002.
