With Wolves playing Manchester United at 3pm, fans are being urged to prepare for delays. A club spokesman said supporters were being updated on the situation.
A club spokesman said: "A reminder to supporters travelling to and from Manchester that the M6 will be closed between J14 and J15 from 8pm."
