Wolves’ Wembley sellout guarantees them their biggest following for 16 years

Wolves are guaranteed their biggest following for nearly 16 years after they sold their entire allocation of 33,000 tickets for their FA Cup semi-final with Watford at Wembley.

Tickets were snapped up in the space of five days by season ticket holders and members for the eagerly-awaited clash on Sunday, April 7.

The sell-out means Wolves will be backed by their biggest following since a similar number descended on Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium for the Championship play-off final win against Sheffield United in 2003, which was watched by 69,473, as the club prepares for its first FA Cup semi-final since 1998.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side will be roared on by the club’s largest following for over 30 years, since around 50,000 travelled to Wembley for the 1988 Sherpa Van Trophy final against Burnley.

Wolves have won their last six trips to Wembley going back to 1939 – all cup finals apart from the 3-1 win away to Tottenham in December – but have lost their last four FA Cup semi-finals.

All semi-final tickets will be sent out first class via Royal Mail by Friday, ensuring they will arrive with supporters in good time before the semi-final.

Tickets for Wolves’ next two Premier League home games, against Brighton & Hove Albion and Arsenal, go on sale on Saturday, with prices and sale dates available at tickets.wolves.co.uk.
