Wigan RL History - 1914-15 Season

Click to View: 1913-1914 Season or 1915-1916 War Season

The 1914-15 season began just a month after Britain had declared War on Germany following their invasion of Belgium in early August. Tensions across Europe had seen a full scale "World War" develop in late July but despite this the 1914-1915 season was played to its conclusion before competitive competition was finally suspended. In fact the season kicked off on 5th September, the same day the First big battle of World War I (the Battle of the Marne) began in which the Franco-British defeated the Germans.
