Redevelopment of Molineux outlined by Wolves owners

Wolverhampton Wanderers FC are off to flying start in their return to Premier League football this season. News could get even better for fans of the club as the ownership has discussed plans to redevelop the current ground rather than relocate to a new one.

Wolves managing director Laurie Dalrymple has told Sky Sports, the ownership is planning on redeveloping the club’s historic Molineux ground.

“I’ve got no doubt whatsoever that we’ve got enough space here to stay at Molineux and I see Molineux as being intrinsically linked, both with this club’s history, but similarly with the club’s future as well,” said Dalrymple. He continued ” We see a benchmark that this club could grow to a 45,000-50,000 capacity in the medium to long term if we continue on the trajectory that we’re continuing on.”

Molineux which was first opened in 1889 currently seats 32,500 fans and was last renovated during Wolves most recent prior Premier League stint in the early 2010’s.
