Wolves to consider semi-final beamback when tickets sold

Wolves will consider beaming their FA Cup semi-final back to Molineux – when they have sold all their tickets for Wembley.

The club will begin selling the 33,000 tickets for the game against Watford to season ticket holders with more than 1,040 loyalty points on Saturday (9am). The game takes place on Sunday, April 7 (4pm).

But with around 22,500 season ticket holders and many more thousands of members, demand is expected to outstrip supply.

Michael Goodwin, from Facebook group Wolves Gossip And Memories, is one of several supporters to ask the club about the option of a ‘beamback’.

Club supporter liason officer Dave Wood emailed him this reply: “The suggestion of the game being shown at Molineux is something we will be considering going forward.

As you can appreciate, the immediate focus will be selling and fulfilment of tickets.

However, once ticket sales have finished, we will then consider options for supporters who were unable to obtain tickets.

Please be assured that the needs of all fans will be considered.”

Wolves have previously beamed big games back to Molineux, including the away legs of the First Division play-off semi-finals at Bolton in 1995 and Crystal Palace in 1997, opening up two stands.

Goodwin wrote: “Remember years when Molineux was opened up for the Sheffield Wednesday away match on the Sunday?

Wouldn’t it be brilliant if it was done again for supporters that couldn’t get to Wembley and it was shown on the big screen?”
