Founded in 1932, Wigan are also known as The Latics. A relatively new club by comparison to many others in the Football League, Wigan arrived in the Premier League in 2005 and after a strong start to the season, that saw them rising up to second in the league at one point, they dropped back a bit to finish in 10th place - to date their highest ever finish. Aside from their league success they have also won the FA Cup, a feat they achieved in the 2012/13 season when they beat Manchester City in the final. Off the back of that famous victory, they earned their first ever chance to play European football.
Now managed by Leam Richardson and captained by the Zimbabwean defender Tendayi Darikwa, this Lancashire-based team also boasts names like Max Power, Jordan Cousins and Tom Pearce on its roster. Other stars to have worn the blue and white shirt include the likes of Leighton Baines, Arjan de Zeeuw, Charles N'Zogbia and Titus Bramble who all featured for the club during its glory years in the Premier League. Meanwhile famous supporters include The Verve singer Richard Ashcroft and Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, who reportedly took a shine to the club during the 2008/09 season when his countrymen Mido and Amr Zaki both joined The Latics.
