Wigan Warriors Rugby League Football Club is one of the most famous and successful sports club's in the world. The club has grown from humble beginnings into one of the giants of British sport.
The town's first rugby club was Wigan F.C. founded in 1872 by a group of members of the town's Cricket Club. Wigan FC played on Folly Field, near Upper Dicconson Street. Until financial problems and an inability to recruit quality players led to a merger with Up Holland F.C. and the creation of a new club Wigan and District F.C. The new club played its home games at the then Wigan Cricket Club, in Prescott Street. Eighteen months later however and this initial foray into the world of rugby was over and the club disbanded.
