Wolves season ticket holders likely to miss out on refund

English Championship club Wolverhampton Wanderers season ticket holders could miss out on a large refund with just hours remaining until its target sales deadline is reached.

The club launched a ticket scheme in early January, which said that if 16,500 season tickets were sold before the end of May, supporters would receive between £59 and £119 back. That number needed to include 14,400 adult tickets. The deadline was pushed back until June 14 at the end of May.

However, with limited time remaining and more than 2,000 adult tickets short of the total, fans look to be out of luck.

According to the Express and Star newspaper, as of Monday morning, the total stood at 15,141, of which 12,235 were adult sales.

During the discounted early bird window in mid-March, Wolves sold more than 14,500 tickets, but sales have slowed considerably since the end of April.

When Wolves decided to extend the refund target deadline, it was expected that the appointment of Nuno Espirito Santo as head coach would encourage supporters to buy season tickets.

However, fewer than 200 season tickets have been sold in the two-week extension period, despite the current total being the highest number sold since the 2011-12 season, when Wolves were in the Premier League.
