Wolves announce new stadium plans

Thu 27th May 2010 | Football Stadiums & Facilities

Wolverhampton Wanderers football Club have today unveiled plans for a £40 million regeneration of Molineux, which will hopefully see an initial two-staged, phased development bringing the stadium capacity to 36,000 (currently 29,303) for the start of the 2014/15 season.

Over a three year period, the Stan Cullis (North) and Steve Bull (East) Stands will be demolished and new two-tier stands created.  Then there are plans for phases 3 and 4 which would see the Jack Harris (South) Stand to have its roof removed and a new top-tier added and a complete redevelopment of the Billy Wright (West) main stand depending on whether or not the additional seats are required.  

These plans represent an exciting vision which Wolves' Chairman, Steve Morgan, had when he took control of the Club in 2007. The majority of Molineux was developed in the wake of the Lord Justice Taylor report (Molineux was the first stadium to be renovated following Taylor) and is less than 20 years old. However, Steve is determined to improve supporters' facilities, bring fans much closer to the pitch to enhance matchday atmosphere and create new and improve income streams for the Club.

These plans will also provide a welcome boost to the local economy, with new jobs set to be created both during construction and, in the long-term, as part of the bigger and improved stadium.
