Wigan is a large town in Greater Manchester, England. It stands on the River Douglas, 15 miles (24.1 km) south of Preston, 16.5 miles (26.6 km) west-northwest of Manchester, and 17.4 miles (28.0 km) east-northeast of Liverpool. Wigan is the largest settlement in the Metropolitan Borough of Wigan and is its administrative centre. Wigan had a total population of 81,203 in 2001.
Historically a part of Lancashire, Wigan's early history is marked by its status as a territory inhabited by the Brigantes, an ancient Celtic tribe. Wigan is believed to have been incorporated as a borough in 1246 following the issue of a Charter by King Henry III of England. At the end of the Middle Ages it was one of four boroughs in Lancashire possessing Royal charters, the others being Lancaster, Liverpool, and Preston.
During the Industrial Revolution Wigan experienced dramatic economic expansion and a rapid rise in the population. Although porcelain manufacture and clock making had been major industries in the town, Wigan has since become known as a major mill town and coal mining district. The first coal mine was established at Wigan in 1450 and at its peak there were 1,000 pit shafts within 5 miles (8 km) of the town centre.[citation needed] Mining was so extensive that one of its town councillors once remarked that "a coal mine in the backyard was not uncommon in Wigan". Coal mining ceased during the latter part of the 20th century.
Wigan Pier, a wharf on the Leeds and Liverpool Canal, was made famous by the writer George Orwell. In his book, The Road to Wigan Pier, Orwell highlighted the poor working and living conditions of the local inhabitants during the 1930s. Following the decline of industrial activities in the region, Wigan Pier's collection of warehouses and wharfs has become a local heritage centre and cultural quarter.

Sports in Wigan

Wigan Athletic F.C. and Wigan Warriors share the JJB Stadium.
Wigan's main sporting clubs are Wigan Athletic (football) and Wigan Warriors (rugby league) both of which share the JJB Stadium. For most of the 20th century, Wigan RLFC's ground was Central Park which stood alongside the River Douglas in Wigan. It was the scene of many Lancashire Cup Finals, Challenge Cup Semi-Finals, international games and test matches. Springfield Park was the former home of Wigan Athletic FC between 1932 and 1999. Prior to this the ground was home to Wigan Borough (1919-31), Wigan Town (1905-08), Wigan United (1901-03) and Wigan County (1897-1900). Wigan Rugby League used the ground during the 1901-02 season and Springfield Borough RLFC did the same in the late 1980s. Orrell R.U.F.C. are the town's rugby union team and enjoyed slight success, just missing out on promotion to the Zurich Premiership in the 03/04 season but suffered a steep decline in recent years and have since fallen into the status of an amateur club and now play their home games at St John Rigby's College. Wigan RLFC use former home ground, Edge Hall Road for training, under-18 and Senior Academy games.
During the 1980s and 1990s Wigan RL enjoyed unprecedented success becoming arguably the best team in the world. The team's success, however, has declined since the introduction of the Super League salary cap. A poor start to the 2006 Super League season resulted in the sacking of Ian Millward as coach, and prompted the hiring of Bradford Bulls coach Brian Noble. Noble made some shrewd signings including Stuart Fielden from his former club for a world record transfer fee and quickly made himself a firm fan's favourite. With Noble at the helm, the Warriors won nine of their last thirteen matches, avoiding relegation, and finishing 8th in the league table. Whilst striving to recapture the success of the 80s and 90s, the Wigan club is slowly getting back onto it's feet. A sixth place finish in the 2007 season saw them into the play-offs where they were the winning team in what has been labeled "The greatest comeback in Super League history", beating the Bradford Bulls 31-30 at Odsal after being 30 points to 6 down at one point. After that, Wigan travelled to Headingley Stadium to face the Leeds Rhinos for the chance to play St. Helens at Old Trafford for the Super League title. Wigan were beaten by the eventual champions Leeds but their playoff run managed to instill a new found optimism within the supporters for the next season, an optimism that has been well-placed as the team currently sit 2nd in the league with 11 games played.
Wigan Athletic were elected to the Football League only in 1978 and had little success for many years, but they have recently gained promotion to the F.A. Premier League and the 2005–2006 season was their first ever in the top flight. The team was in the top half of the table for the entire season, finishing tenth, and made it to the League Cup Final in February 2006, where they were beaten by neighbours Manchester United.
Wigan has an international-standard swimming pool in the town centre, built to exact Olympic standards, but never used for official Olympic sanctioned competition. The resident swimming club, Wigan Wasps, which has now changed its name to Wigan BEST, has produced Olympic standard swimmers, including medal winner June Croft.
Wigan staged motorcycle speedway racing at two different venues. Poolstock Stadium was the home of Wigan Warriors who raced in the National League Division two in 1947 and a short open season in 1960. Woodhouse Lane Stadium was used briefly in the early 1950s.
Wigan is home to Billy Riley's Snake Pit, a prominent professional wrestling school that is reputed as one of the toughest in the world, basing itself on traditional catch as catch can wrestling to build ring-tough performers.
