Wigan Athletic are in the Premier League.
If people in rural China have heard of Wigan - which they now will have done - it will be because of soccer.
Of course, they might think it's next to the fictional town of West Bromwich but what can you do?
As someone who doesn't live in England and follows both Rugby league & the Premier league, I know Wigan more for their Rugby League team as to their Football/Soccer team, pretty much always been a Rugby town hasn't it, Wigan Athletic attendances are usually woeful, I think they're the biggest Rugby League team in England but to say the biggest in the world like some above have suggested is quite the stretch.
