The 2012–13 English football season was Wigan Athletic's eighth consecutive season in the Premier League. The club competed in the League Cup and reached both the semi-finals and the final of the FA Cup for the first time in their history. They beat Everton 3–0 at Goodison Park, with all three goals scored within a four-minute spell, to progress to the semi-final,[1] and defeated Millwall at Wembley Stadium to reach the final.[2][3] On 11 May the club won their first ever FA Cup after a 1–0 win against Manchester City in the final. The club then went on to set the unwanted record of becoming the first ever team to win the FA Cup and be relegated in the same season, going down after a 4–1 defeat to Arsenal on 14 May.[4][5]
