The Molineux Stadium, the home ground of the Wolverhampton Wanderers, was built in 1889 and is located in Wolverhampton. Many grand matches took place at the stunning stadium.
Discover the magic of the Molineux Stadium
The stadium’s capacity is 32,050 but the capacity was once overreached when 61,315 spectators were in the stadium. This happened before all stadiums in England had to be turned into all seater stadiums. The Wolverhampton Wanderers have been playing at the Molineux Stadium since 1889 and it’s also one of the first football stadiums that was built in England. You can imagine the stadium has been renovated six times since its opening. The stadium was one of the first ones where artificial lights, like spotlights, were installed, which made it possible for footballers to play at night, too. The Wolves can also boast about the fact that the first UEFA Cup final took place at their stadium.
Molineux Stadium stands
Wolverhampton is full of low buildings, which makes the stadium visible from every corner of the city. The stadium is currently being renovated and aims at expanding the capacity to 38,000. The stadium contains four stands, The Steve Bull, The Sir Jack Hayward, The Stan Cullis and The Billy Wright. The away area is at The Steve Bull stand and allows 2,750 supporters of the opponents in. The away area is pretty far from the field, which makes the field seem bigger than it actually is.
