Wolves fan groups joined forces late last week after the club revealed a hike of 17 per cent in some prices, and up to 176 per cent for some children, for next season.

Their petition has already gathered more than 8,000 signatures as Wolves 1877 Supporters Trust claimed they are “one step closer to delivering every single signature to the club.”
