Molineux (capacity 31,700)
Home to Wolverhampton Wanderers since 1889, Molineux was the first ‘new build’ stadium in the football league, amongst the first to install floodlights, and also hosted the very first UEFA Cup Final in 1972.
The stadium is dominated by the Stan Cullis Stand, which can be seen for miles on the Wolverhampton sky line. This is a two tiered stand which partly extends round the corner towards the Steve Bull stand. An unusual feature of the side stands is they are curved, meaning those on the half way line are a little further away from the pitch.
Away fans visiting Molineux are housed in the lower tier of the Steve Bull Stand with a typical allocation of 2,750. However, smaller followings are located on one side of the Stan Cullis Stand, with a typical allocation of around 1,600.
There is limited parking at Molineux itself, but there are many pay and display car parks in the city centre, and also a number of matchday car parks in the surrounding area.

Wolverhampton Railway Station is just under a mile away from Molineux, and should only take around 15 minutes to walk. Exit the station from the main entrance on Railway Drive, and follow this road as it passes under the busy A-road and turns into Lichfield Street. Turn right on to Princess Street and go straight across the Hogshead roundabout. Continue on this road until you reach the ring road, and cross the road at the traffic lights. You’ll then see the stadium to the left of the University campus.
