Rennovation plans and safe standing for Molineux

Wolves install rail seats and reveal plans to transform Molineux

Saturday 18th May 2019

Wolverhampton Wanderers have revealed ambitious plans to transform Molineux into a much larger stadium. Little detail has been revealed other than a couple of very impressive images - the club hasn't announced anything regarding capacity, cost or timescales. The images were teased at Wolves' end of season awards night. With nothing other than the images, it's very much a case of "watch this space".

However, the club have announced that safe standing rail seats will be installed at the stadium this summer, in time for the start of the 2019/2020 Premier League season.

The midlands side who finished 7th in their first season back in the top flight, will install the rail seats in the lower tier of the Sir Jack Hayworth Stand A survey of season ticket holders found 97% were in favour of the move.
