The Latics beat Manchester City 1-0 at Wembley on Saturday to lift their first major trophy but travel back to London to face Arsenal on Tuesday for their penultimate match of the season which would see them relegated should they lose.

"The club can confirm plans for a civic ceremony to celebrate the historic FA Cup Final victory have to be put on hold until the situation in the league becomes clear," said a club statement.

"An announcement will be made as soon as any further news is available.

"The club would like to take this opportunity of thanking the incredible support shown by all the fans who travelled to Wembley, plus the great support of Wigan Council and the people of Wigan and we will keep everyone informed."
