Molineux Stadium, located in Wolverhampton, West Midlands, serves as the home ground for Premier League club Wolverhampton Wanderers, or better known as “the Wolves”, since 1889.

 

It was the first stadium constructed solely for a Football League Club and was among the first in the country to install floodlights, hosting some of the earliest European club matches in the 1950’s.

 

In the early 1990’s, at the time of its multi-million pound renovation, it was one of the biggest and most modern stadiums in England. It has hosted England international matches, England under-21 internationals, as well as the first UEFA Cup Final in 1972.

 

The Molineux is a 31,750 all-seater stadium, however, it did used to attract much larger crowds when it primarily featured terracing, with the record attendance reaching 61,315.

 

In 2010, plans were announced to rebuild and link three sides of the stadium, increasing the capacity to 38,000, with the first phase being completed in 2012. The latter stages were postponed to focus on funding for the club's youth academy, but with long-term plans to redevelop all stands, potentially reaching a capacity of 50,000.
