Wolves supporters on course to miss out on season ticket refund

Wolves season ticket holders appear set to miss out on a significant refund barring a late surge in sales.

Wolves have sold more than 15,000 but look set to miss a target which would have seen supporters get a partial refund.

With only a couple of days remaining before deadline, the club is more than 2,000 adult tickets short of the sales total needed for fans receive a partial ‘rebate’ of between £59 and £119.

The club launched an innovative ticket scheme in early January which would see supporters get a discount on their season ticket if a target of 16,500, which would need to include 14,400 adult tickets, was reached.

Yet as of Monday morning, the total stood at 15,141, of which 12,235 were adult sales.

Wolves sold more than 14,500 tickets during the discounted early bird window but sales have slowed considerably since it closed at the end of April.

The club extended the refund target deadline by a fortnight until 5pm this Wednesday, June 15, in the hope the appointment of Nuno Espirito Santo as head coach would spark an increase in sales.

But less than 200 season tickets have been sold during the extended period.

The current total still means the club is set to have the highest number of season ticket holders since the 2011-2012 season, which was their most recent campaign in the Premier League.

The relocation period, in which existing season ticket holders can change their seats, will begin at 10am on Monday June 19.
