Wolverhampton Wanderers has launched a season ticket waiting list for the first time in the club’s history due to “unprecedented demand.”

Season tickets for the 2018-19 season have been capped at 22,500 to allow for the required Premier League away allocation and match-by-match home tickets. 

Wolves has been promoted this year after winning the Championship title in the 2017-18 season.

The entire allocation sold out on Wednesday afternoon, with the waiting list opening up on Friday for any supporters who missed out on a season ticket and are keen to be in line as soon as any become available in future.

The club said that enrolment priority will be determined by 2017/18 season loyalty points, with anyone wishing to join the waiting list also required to purchase a 2018/19 membership.

“Waiting list positions will be allocated in the same way season tickets were, with the number of loyalty points each individual needs to be eligible to join the waiting list dropping every two working days,” the club said in a statement.

After the loyalty points lower all the way to zero on July 25, the waiting list will be open to all supporters regardless of loyalty points accrued.
