Wolves reverse U14s season ticket price hike

Premier League club Wolverhampton Wanderers has backtracked somewhat over increased season ticket prices, following protests from fans. 

Representatives from the club met with the Fan Advisory Board earlier this week to discuss the 2024-25 and 2025-26 season ticket prices.

Fans had been in uproar over season ticket price hikes, which most notably saw under-14s tickets increase from £105 ($135/€125) to £290 for next season.

Despite a petition calling for the decision to be reversed, the club had initially defended the increases, calling them “crucial”.

Following talks, the club has agreed that there will be a guaranteed freeze on adult season ticket prices for the 2025-26 season, and there will be no price increase for under-14s for the 2024-25 season.

Additionally, the pricing strategy and structure of junior season tickets will be reviewed for the 2025-26 season, in consultation with the Fan Advisory Board.

“Wolves deeply value the feedback from our supporters and the role the Fan Advisory Board plays in representing their voices,” said the club in a statement.

“We are committed to ensuring open communication and collaboration as we strive to achieve success on and off the pitch and we believe our dialogue reflects our dedication to maintaining a strong, competitive and united Wolves family.

“We thank the Fan Advisory Board for their time, energy and commitment to our discussions and look forward to our ongoing relationship, as we work with them closely to continue to represent the fans’ voice in our club’s future.”
