Wigan Athletic’s relegation to the third tier League One has been confirmed after the club said on Tuesday that they had lost their appeal against a 12-point deduction.
The English Football League (EFL) said last month that Wigan would be docked 12 points after the club entered administration. Wigan finished second-bottom of the Championship standings as a result, two points from safety.
“The Independent Disciplinary Commission has deliberated over the last few days on the evidence presented at Friday’s appeal against the 12-point deduction,” Wigan said in a statement
The Independent Disciplinary Commission has ruled that the appeal has not been successful.”
