Wolves unveil What House? as new £1m sponsor

Wolves today announced What House? as their new main club sponsor in a deal worth a potential £1million.

The club has signed a lucrative two-year deal with the online property search company. in moves that could bring in a seven-figure sum based on performance-related elements.

What House? has sponsored the back of Wolves shirts this season but will take over the main sponsorship from sportingbet.com from the start of June.

Online betting company sportingbet.com, which has been the club’s main sponsor since 2009, was recently taken over by William Hill and its second two-year sponsorship deal was due to end this summer.

The What House? brand – whathouse.co.uk – will appear on the new home and away first-team shirts, all training kit and, for the first time, junior strips.

The company will change its traditional red branding to black on the team’s home kit to complement the club’s iconic gold and black colours.

Wolves chief executive Jez Moxey said: “We’re delighted What House? have decided to become our main sponsor, after a year supporting the club as the sponsor of the back of the first-team shirts.”

The deal means Wolves will have a new main club sponsor and new kit manufacturers this summer after unveiling a £1m four-year deal with Puma last month to replace Burrda. New Puma home and away kits will be available for fans to buy at the home game against Burnley on April 27.

Rupert Bates, of whathouse.co.uk said: “We’re totally committed to helping Wolves return to where they belong among the elite of English football.”

Jez Bhatti

Third-rate tin pot sponsor, supporting third-rate tin pot football club.

MOXEY OUT

SAUNDERS OUT

Tividale Wolf

Echo these comments totally - and Moxey sez he wants a full Molineux giving noisy committed support v Huddersfield, well Jez - LOWER THE BLOODY TICKET PRICES mate, then u might get somewhere near the capacity !

Wolfe

This sponsor got anything to do with Morgan's buisness ???

Bring Stan Ding back

Thanks for all your loyal support jez or are you another smethwick shuffler?

noreg

That is good news - use betting companies on the shirt - also for juniors - is no good

UP THE WOLVES!

issa nissa

Never a truer word spoken

Gerry Collins

What House are NOT a bookmaker you bumpy!

Definitive Wolf

Somehow I think he knows that - if you re-read him he has just expressed it badly: he meant "using" rather than "use".

I think he's talking about the sponsors now do try to keep up

Thehoffsleftsock

No, but sportingbet may have been you DOUBLE NUMPTY!!

DJ Tommo and MC Bully

Rupert Bates, of whathouse.co.uk said: “We’re totally committed to helping Wolves return to where they belong among the elite of English football.”

Have you got an estate agent who can play like Messi? If not I think you should swap the word 'elite' with 'SCRAPHEAP'!

Recall Griffiths now!!

Spenno

Surely you didn't just finish by saying recall Griffiths ???

SEATTLE WOLF

Obviously he did. Many of us rate him and wish things were different, even if aware he can't come back down to us until the season ends. We're frustrated that there was so much managerial chaos that obviously aided in this not happening, among many other factors.

We all know his contractual loan agreement with Hibs won't let him return for the remainder of this season.

He has two more years on his contract after this one, and Deano said he wants to give him a chance after further seasoning up north. If we drop to League One we know that's a non-starter.

If we survive and stay in the Championship, rebuild and push the reset button for next August, why not have Leigh Griffiths as part of our strike for e?

He's our player.

He's you g and slightly petulant, granted, but he is expected to mature, and hopefully that will be in a Wolves shirt in a few months.

With the right service and nurturing from fellow ex-striker, Saunders, he could explode and do damage to Championship opposition, helping Wolves to challenge again.

UTMW

Bring Stan Ding back

I was waiting for that one, he obviously is,nt the only one who does,nt listen at the Mol.

jammie roger

For the thousandth time we recall griffiths now! Do you not ever read/listen? And of course Yes lets get everyone out for getting us a new sponsorship deal! Doughnut!

Mark W

We cannot recall Griffith! He is on loan till the end of the season, with a no return clause...

Definitive Wolf

Quite so, Mark W. How many times do we have to tell them?

Mills wolf

FOR PITY SAKE.....

LEIGH GRIFFITHS WILL NEVER PLAY FOR WOLVES AGAIN, WE CANT CALL HIM BACK, WE DONT WANT TO CALL HIM BACK AND HE DONT WANT TO COME BACK !!!!!

WHY DO YOU HAVE TROUBLE UNDERSTANDING THIS ????

nightflyer69

Its just people being childish mate, wanting to get a reaction. Everybody knows, just ignore the idiots and maybe they will get tired of posting these comments.

Bring Stan Ding back

Lets start a campaign to bring back Griff (this is so funny its getting like a monty python sketch.

Dear Oh Dear

Should be...What Division??

JS

What House? 'What League?' would be more fitting

At last

Finally got rid of that Blue and White off the Old Gold and Black

Buckswolf

"Up to" deals always worry me as it's the minimum amount that really counts and what performance has to be achieved and by who in order to get to the maximum amount. Be nice to have a bit more detail on this from Jez (and maybe a "wash-up" session at the end of the deal to see how much real cash they actually ended up putting into the club). Who can forget Chaucer who paid a large part of their contribution in "free consulting services" to the club = almost no value!

OiveSeenTheLight

Prefer it to a betting company, I will say that. And it fits well with SM's interests. We could have 'Portland Cement' on the back of the shirt perhaps!! As long as in the future Wolves don't become "what club?" Make sure you win on Saturday. UTW

SSB

why not have WHAT DIVISION,COM

PeteNuts

“We’re totally committed to helping Wolves return to where they belong among the elite of English football.”

Adorable. And how exactly are you going to act on this commitment beyond chucking in some cash to get your name on the shirt? Have you got a handy office 5-a-side team or something?

Minor

Still, it beats doing nothing but putting the club down and moaning all the time.

Definitive Wolf

Gallows humour has its place.

PeteNuts

I wouldn't know anything about that, being as I am an an essentially constructive critic in such times as criticism is merited.

Minor

Yeah, a real hero in your own front room.

Selly park wolf

I notice their CEO has brokered a deal which is based on performance related elements?

Any chance you could sack moxey mr Morgan and employ this CEO, who clearly knows what he/she is doing!

Despite more results going against us last night at least this mornings transfer rumours cheered me up seeing that Berra is interesting stoke and fulham I thought April fools day was last week?

I bet shawcross and hangderland won't get any sleep tonight!

JIWAL

The elite? In the Third Division next season. How we can call this shambles "elite" is beyond belief. The Board live in cloud cuckoo land

Sir Billy Quiet

Jiwal - as you have declared that you no longer support Wolves what is your obsession with posting comments about the club?

You need to get a life............

Drw Wolf

If you have to moan about absolutely everything could you at least try reading the article properly and quoting in context Jiwal?

Dave wwfc

What House ? ..... What Division ?

What house Jez's house of cards

Liam

Who allowed Jez to lean on Sako like that? Hopefully his back is ok. Im glad the sponsors will be in black this time, it will be interesting to see the shirt now.

Quint

Shouldn't it be What League? !!!

Sussexwolf

I've always hoped that Duracell might sponsor us.

1. It's the right colours

2. It might put some energy into our team.

I notice the Whathouse deal is worth a "Potential" one million. In other words £100,000 in League one, £200,000 in the Championship and the Jackpot for Wolves getting into the Premiership at the end of next year?

bilodave

And the bunny is a Wolves fan!!

Definitive Wolf

Sako seems to have a "What am I doing here?" expression on his face. Can't say I blame him if that is so.

jay

poor sako he looks like hes in pain with moxey on his back ,be out for another few years now ,like most of you say what league .1 lose saturday were down ,moxey out morgan out

loyal wolves "SUPPORTER"

YET MORE NEGATIVE COMMENTS , ITS A SHIRT SPONSER , WAT WOULD WOLVES FANS BE HAPPY WITH ????? I WOULD SAY THE SHIRT SPONSER IS THE LEAST OF MY WORRIES AT THE MOMENT , IM MORE CONCERNED WHETHER WE ARE GOING TO STAY UP , MIND DUE HALF THE FANS WONT SEE IT ON THE SHIRTS LIVE ANYWAY WILL THEY AS THEY ARE NOT RENEWING PFFT HAHA !

BP

What is 'mind due'?,and turn your caps lock off you bloody fool.

loyal wolves "SUPPORTER"

IM A FOOL HAHA , IM ONE OF THE MOST LOYAL WOLVES "SUPPORTERS" THE CLUB AS GOT HAHA , AND WAT IM SAYING IS TRUE AINT IT , MY MAIN CONCERN IS TRYING TO STAY IN THE LEAGUE , NOT WHAT WRITING IS ON OUR SHIRT NEXT SEASON AND ALSO A LOT OF PEOPLE THAT POST ON HERE HAVNT RENEWED ACCORDING TO WAT THEY HAVE PUT SO IM CORRECT ON THE LAST PART TO :)

PeteNuts

Worst post ever.

Noisy

Come on Pete be fair, it was worth reading for the 'MIND DUE' part. Oh the irony (well I think it's irony but I'm still a bit unsure on that one!)

Tim Vine

That's a funny post

loyal wolves "SUPPORTER"

WHERE ARE YOU NOISY FROM ? YOUR FRONT ROOM LISTENING TO IT ON BBC WM IS MY BEST GUESS

loyal wolves "SUPPORTER"

I ONLY SPEAK THE TRUTH , TELL MY ON WHAT POINTS U DISAGREE THAT I HAVE MADE AND I WILL EXPLAIN FURTHER :)

PeteNuts

Baxter, you know I don't speak Spanish. In English please.

Minor

Constructive criticism?

Wolfman II

I know the majority dislike Moxey, but you have to take your hat off to his management of the club from a off the pitch perspective. He is very good and getting good sponsor deals. Let's hope some of this positive news rubs off on the lads and leads to a few more wins before the end of the season.

On another note: what has happened to EGGERT JONSSON? Why isn't DS playing EGGERT JONSSON? He is the answer to all of our problems and can fill the gap of David Davis. This time next year we will be celebrating promotion back to the prem and we will all be chanting: 'There's only one EGGERT JONSSON'! DS don't cast him away and let him become one of the 'forgotten' like Robert Niestroj or Silas.

Wednesbury wolves

I will say this for the millionth time, if moxey was good at his job, why on earth hasn't a club in the premier league bundesliga serie a, Spanish league come in for him??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

117shawroad

What a moaning set of gits we have purporting to be Wolves fans.

We have two firms (for the want of a better word) who are willing to put some money into the club.

You morons, the moaning ones that is, would have something to moan about if, we were like our neighbours up the road who did not have a sponsor at one time but they got over it and look where they are now.

Therefore the money into the club may make a difference somewhere, unlike you moaners out there,who have in all probability have not got a season ticket and contribute nothing to the club, except moan moan and moan.

It is always the same people who do the moaning and at all times of the day.

You moaners cannot all be shift workers or pensioners so I wonder what JOBS they have?

what times your shift start

Wednesbury wolves

Entitled to our say, freedom of speech ever heard of it?

Bring Stan Ding back

I,m the mascot

65 years a wolfman

See Jez Bahtti is out of his Albion hole again, go home and worry about a team WHO HAD TO PLAY A COMPLETE SEAN WITHOUT A SPONSOR. Other real fans look at Blackburn and be very careful what you wish for remember we have been there to.

Dear Oh Dear

When did we play COMPLETE SEAN and what was the score????

K,ford Wolf

What House What a Mess

Comes to mind but to be honest if they are keen to back us with hard cash then that should be good enough for all the doubters. Our brand is tarnished at the minute so lets be realistic and give Jez the credit he deserves. Some of our supporters are a disgrace the way they rubbish our club and its staff Support should mean Support and should be unconditional. So chins up all you Wolves be there Saturday and sing loud and proud. You never know you might enjoy yourselves. So

onwards and upwards Deano Deano Deano

We are Wolves We are Wolves We are Wolves

Longtimewolf

I'm sorry but I just can't get excited

I'd rather have a full house. Not a what house.

graham hartland

A day after Man U sign an £15m/ year, 10 year long sponsorship deal for the TRAINING GROUND, WWFC scape the bottom of the barrel ( the bottom of the outside that is) on this " worth a potential £1m" 'deal' as their main money making sponsorship! It makes you weep how far the club has sunk after it's 1986 rebirth, well done all concerned, especially the two stooges Morgan & Moxey:

Chris

I heard that What House said:

"Wolverhampton Wanderers is recently extended and in need of modernisation and careful refurbishment, but close to all local amenities and within easy access of Asda. To the front there is ample parking for several cars and the inside is laid mostly to lawn."

Exciting.

Cudgie

Moxey, Don't lean on him to much, you will break his back & then we will have even more injury concerns...................What!

Bleydh

Here we go again - more interested in what happens off the field than on it.

Yes we need sponsorship but we also need to preserve our championship status.

djp

I think they are standing in front of our new half time game!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Must have been a crucial element of the bidding war that went on behind scenes.....

CANNOT WAIT.

ssdd

Love the repation on here. Can anyone say something original?

OneThatGotAway

Would "repetition" be the word you are seeking? Now that was original. You had me going for a moment then!

Well "repation " is a start!

Stuart

It seems as anything that comes out of the club at the moment is met with derision and anger from some fans. At a time when we need to get behind the club we still have call's for the club to get rid of the people who got us into the Premiership and whether we like it or not, they are at the helm right now and until the end of the season, far too much negativity from too many fans.

OneThatGotAway

And humour - we need some of that! Can't be deadly serious all of the time - can drag you down.

andyinstoke

What was to the right of the photgrapher? A pot of money or a pie?

Agreed, betting companies not ideal for family clubs

Let's see the shirts then are we copying the one Sandwell had,the big red house

SamWolf

NOOOO....Read it.....its going to be black.

Wolf Blast

What House? I think we would have all preferred Rightmove as that is what been lacking.

Paul Williams

Well done mate on an original punch line for the article. How many people (myself included I confess) thought "what house? How about what league? Ha ha ha!" Can't understand the predictable whining about it though. Surely part of the deal was to get the papers in for photos?

SEATTLE WOLF

Another no-name bargain basement sponsorship deal that is not ever really going to elevate our status or image, though wins will!

£1,000,000 is just not that much on the grand scale of what goes into running a club like Wolves, though who am I to say, because Mr. Moxey is the only one who runs the rule over the books...for now!

Best shirt sponsor we ever had was GOODYEAR. Big time company. Bold outward appearance. Big name at the time. Ah, where's some Kleenix, I am getting all misty!

UTMW

Tacky sponsor

You finally go back to a good kit manufacturer and you go and agree a deal to ruin the kit by slapping on a DIRE sponsor on the front .

Certainly ain't be getting the new kit now !!!

Maybe a special kit for MOXEY and MORGAN with WHAT TRUTH or WHAT LIES emblazoned on it !!!!

Too busy brokering awful tacky deals like this instead of backing getting in cover when we needed it . Now the injuries so we have to revert to the dross players that dug the hole .

WHAT FOOTBALLING BRAINS !!!!

chadsmoor wolf

will they please change the awful badge as well looks like a two year old designed it,go back to the seventies with either the

three wolves down the middle or the ww with the wolf jumping over it

wol1877ves

been saying this for years about the badge its to cartoony,i mainly buy the retro tops now simply because of the badge,/\/\WWFC/\/\,

Bring Stan Ding back

great idea!!

benny from crossroads

Iconic gold shirts.

Not in the 21st century.

Wolves not the big old famous club anymore.

Thanks Steve and Jez

Bloody hell, are you writing us off for the next 87 years?

Lets not worry about shirt makes & sponsors names lets get somebody decent to wear them first !!

Der Wulf

Makes me laugh that you can make out the 'old' club sponsor in the background of the photo, indiscreetly showing through the windows of the house logo of the new sponsor!! :D

Boz

New club sponsor, let's get some new players in the summer too.

mrgrumpywolf

what house the house that jack built

and now we all thought the nightmare was over well more to come

no one will do us any favours at all

no player will play for us because of the attitude of the owner and jez moxley

lets build a stand that we didn't need or fill why

we were all suckered into belief that someone else other than jack Hayward was interested in the future of the club

rarther than profit

rich5wolves

Jez brilliant work, but not so hot getting those players in during the window to give us a fighting chance of avoiding the drop.................. If we go down you have overseen a complete failure. Dropping from the Premiership to league one is a failure and you should lose your job over it. As advisor to the owner and the man who deals with all transfer activity, the buck this time stops with you.

Half a million a year plus massive bonuses Jez.................. you would expect better from an employee.

There was a smallish chap pushing a trolley outside the stadium when I drove past the other day, the trolley completely overloaded and he was struggling. Hard workers like this are hard to come by and he is more worthy of a pay packet this size than someone who consistantly makes bad decision............... Maybe he doesnt have the necessary qualifications or something, maybe you do....................but look where you have taken us!?

In reality even if we stay up you should go. I don't dislike you but we have undone years of progress in one foul swoop. Maybe as the owner did with Stale, we should have a fresh approach as the old way isn't working.....................

I live nr and work in Huddersfield n all customers , work related mates etc all think they gonna beat us tomorrow! i of to work in the old gold just for the crack at work 3 nil Wolves I hope
