The punishment for the 2013 FA Cup winners dropped them from 13 th to second from bottom of the second tier and they will play next season in League One .
An EFL statement said, “ An independent arbitration panel has ruled that Wigan Athletic’ s 12 – point deduction for entering administration last month will stand after dismissing the club ’s appeal against the sporting sanction .”
It added, “ The decision of the arbitration panel is final and legally binding. ”
The appeal was held on Friday when it was revealed that “ detailed talks ” with bidders over the sale of the club were to continue this week .
Manager Paul Cook quit the former Premier League club last week .
In a statement on their website , Wigan said, “ The club put forward a strong case and naturally we are disappointed at the decision.
“ The first -team management will now prepare the team for next season’ s Sky Bet League One campaign .”
