Wolves pause season tickets for 2020/21 season

Wolves will pause season-ticket sales until full capacity resumes at Molineux and offer tickets on a match-by-match basis.

Unlike other Premier League clubs, Wolves will not be asking supporters to pay for a full season ticket up front when they will not have access to every home league game because of Covid-19.

The club will instead offer 2019/20 season-ticket holders the chance to buy tickets on a single match basis, when they feel safe, ready and comfortable to attend – once limited capacity begins, with games currently taking place behind-closed-doors.

Non season-ticket holders are unlikely to be able to purchase tickets at this stage.

Vinny Clark, Wolves' general manager for commercial operations, said: “We know that our capacity is going to be reduced dramatically going into the new season, which isn’t ideal for anyone; the club nor the fans.

“We’ve spent a lot of time trying to decide what the best outcome would be with the hand that we’ve been dealt. We’ve played out countless scenarios, but the overarching theme that ran through all our decision making was around fairness and the safety of our supporters.

“It’s not been an easy decision to make, but we hope the system we are putting in place will be the safest, fairest and most flexible way possible to allow our season ticket holders access to Molineux once games resume in front of supporters."

Season ticket holders will be grouped either by household or by having registered as a non-household group, with these groups randomly allocated into pots.

Each home game will then be allocated a pot of supporters who will be invited to purchase a ticket for that particular game.

Pots will be allocated to games as fairly and evenly as possible, depending on match category, and ticket sales are likely to commence around three weeks before each applicable match.
