Wolves’ FA Cup semi-final date confirmed

Wolves’ FA Cup semi-final against Watford at Wembley will be played on Sunday, April 7, the FA has confirmed.

The game will kick-off at 4pm and is due to be broadcast live on BT Sport 2.

The other semi-final tie between Manchester City and Brighton & Hove Albion will be on Saturday April 6, at 5.30pm, and that game will be live on BBC1.

The reward for Nuno Espirito Santo’s side for knocking Manchester United will be the club’s first semi-final appearance in 21 years.

Wolves supporters have been allocated about 33,000 tickets in the East side of Wembley Stadium for the fixture, which will be priced at £30, £45, £65 and £80 for adults.

Full ticket details will be announced in due course.

Wolves will be hoping to improve their recent record in semi-finals, having lost on the last four occasions at this stage of the competition.

In 1973, they were beaten 1-0 by Leeds at Maine Road, six years later they lost 2-0 to Arsenal at Villa Park and in 1981 they were soundly beaten 3-0 by Tottenham at Arsenal in a replay after the initial tie ended 2-2 after extra-time at Hillsborough.

Wolves’ last winning FA Cup semi-final was in 1960 when they beat Villa 1-0 at The Hawthorns.
