Smoke Devices, flares and throwing of objects

Wolves would like to remind all supporters of the dangers of flares and smoke devices, as a Port Vale fans heads for Court after being swiftly identified for discharging a smoke device at Molineux during Wolves’ last home game.


Flares and smoke devices are potentially extremely dangerous and they have been responsible for injuries at sports grounds across the country.


Wolves will not tolerate anything which puts the safety of supporters at risk and would like to remind both home and away fans that anyone found with one of these devices, or is identified as having thrown or discharged any item (including smoke devices or flares) will be prosecuted.


Rigorous turnstile searches are conducted on entry to the ground and there is extensive CCTV coverage within all stands at Molineux. The offender at the Port Vale match was identified, during the game, from CCTV footage and arrested before the final whistle. Wolves have also noted that smoke devices were set off by our own travelling supporters at the fixtures at Brentford and Walsall.  Fans are reminded that it is illegal to take flares or smoke devices into a stadium or to throw any objects.  Click here to view guidance from the Football League.


The Club would like to thank all fans for their expected co-operation. If supporters see items being thrown, please report the incident to the nearest available Steward.
