I've the Wolves membership card since 2018. I'm Portuguese and live in England (Stoke On Trent) since 2017. When I was a kid, 35/40 years ago, I used to choose the Wolves to play Subbutteo with my friends in Portugal because the color was the same as my portuguese football club. It seems little, but that's it, and now there are many Portuguese people who like Wolves... me too. I just cant buy tickets to watch games. :(

Welcome. If you have a supporter number only * (not a membership card) you could have got tickets for the Burnley game last week. I'd say that in the majority of cases a membership will get you a ticket for a game.

* If its for travel or financial reasons that you can't buy the tickets please accept my apologies.

Thank you for your answer. I have a membership card but when I try to buy tickects the system never accepts it. I guess its because I work some weekends, so I cant buy tickets for all the games. For example for the Chelsea game I tried from day one and I never got it. There was a message saying I had the right to "0" tickets for that game.

That doesn't sound right, maybe get in touch and find out why?

Hello everyone. I'm from Bulgaria and I've only recently started supporting Wolves, though I've been somewhat following them for a few years (ever since playing with them on FIFA 13/14 :D). What made me grow fond of the club were a few things, though I would say the most important were the badge and colours (as I've seen mentioned on this forum a few times, Wolves just have a great brand). The colours are similar to those of the local football club that I support, Botev Plovdiv (beat Barcelona and Bayern back in the 80s ;):D), so that's also a reason why I like them so much. I especially enjoy the more yellowish tones on this season's kit and the 2018/19 one. I also love the history of the club, which I recently became more familiar with, some very interesting moments in there. The football they've played in the last few seasons is quite enjoyable to watch as well, I love some good counterattacks. And finally, though it may sound funny, I just love Adama, I know he acts foolishly sometimes, but just seeing him bully people all over the pitch brings true joy to my heart. :D

A week ago I purchased my first piece of Wolves "merch", a black t-shirt from the 1877 collection, it's stunning IMO. However, it's still not been dispatched, which is a bit disappointing. I've not been to a Wolves game yet, unfortunately. I went to the UK for uni so had the chance when I was there, but I was quite some ways away from Molineux (or any PL football ground for that matter) and wasn't really a fan back then. But I do still have close family who live in the UK, albeit in London, so I hope I would be able to catch a game sometime when I go visit them, hopefully an FA Cup semi-final or final at Wembley ;) (Though I know even if we do make it there I have no chance of qualifying for a ticket :cry:). Y'all stay safe and let's hope for some good results over Christmas.

Welcome - if you go to see family in London then the journey is easy. Direct train from Euston Station.

I live in Dorset & have a season ticket & manage (though it's bloody expensive :))

Wow, that's some impressive dedication. I wonder if you are the furthest-living season ticket holder at Molineux.

I doubt it - there are people from all over the UK who are - I'm 140 miles away just that the trains aren't direct & the drive has 40 miles through the rural South West to get to a motorway.

Some beautiful scenery of cows and sheep to enjoy while mentally preparing for the spectacles at Molineux then :D

There was one from the Isle of Man who used to come over for every weekend game home or away on the ferry. He was featured on football focus in the 80s I think

Jeez, I guess that's why they call football a social phenomenon. :D I have a job interview tomorrow (wish me luck), which, if all goes well, might result in me spending quite a bit of time in the UK again, so I could add to this statistic of STH from interesting places. One step at a time though, first I gotta land the job, and then actually try and go to a game for the first time. :D

I think they did a follow up with him a couple of years ago. He’s still attending matches.

No,the Irish Wolves lads are Season ticket holders, and they get the 7am redeye flight to Birmingham from Dublin every fortnight. They even do a few away games. Proper dedication.
I see them every time I fly over, on the se train to the airport after the game and on the same flight

IIRC back in the 70s there was a guy who travelled from Switzerland?
