Skipper Samuel Ricketts today paid tribute once again to the Wolves fans after an allocation of approximately 8,800 was snapped up for the trip to MK Dons.
The final batch of tickets was snapped up within an hour of going on general this morning with 12 days still to go until the fixture on Saturday, March 29th (3pm).
“I have spoken a lot about the fantastic support we have received so far this season,” said Ricketts.
“Even for the difficult midweek trips like Crawley tomorrow night we have sold out of our allocation, as we have done for so many games so far thanks to such a loyal group of fans.
“But taking almost 9,000 to an away game probably takes that to another level!
“The lads have been talking about it in the dressing room this morning, and it is certainly going to be a memorable experience for all of us to see that many fans at an away game.
“So it is definitely something to look forward to, and something we all appreciate, but the focus now is to make sure we do well in our next three games so we are still in the same position to try and make it an even better day out at MK Dons.”
CEO Jez Moxey said: “The support we have received this season, both home and away, has been excellent. But, wow, to have now sold 8,800 tickets for an away League One fixture against MK Dons is quite incredible to see. It is a testament to the loyalty and passion of Wolves’ supporters everywhere.
“This is an unprecedented figure for an away game and is certainly going to make for a fantastic atmosphere at Stadium MK on March 29th. Our computer records show that the last time we did anything like this was on 21st April 2002 when we sold 7,200 tickets for the Championship away match against Sheffield Wednesday, although we may have taken more fans to the Hawthorns for an away match versus West Brom in the early 1990s – we’re checking paper records for that one.
“I know there is some disappointment among supporters who haven’t been able to purchase tickets, and I am sure we could have sold many more had they been available but ever since the 10K2MK fans’ campaign started we have been working closely with officials at MK Dons to obtain the maximum allocation possible and they have done their best to accommodate us.
“This incredible level of support is really appreciated by the coaching staff, players and everyone at the Club. The aim now is to pick up more points over the next three games to be in the strongest position possible before the MK Dons’ fixture and, of course, to reward our travelling fans with a great performance in Milton Keynes.”
Following a fans’ campaign to try and get as many supporters as possible for the club’s first competitive trip to Stadium MK, Wolves have been working closely with MK Dons to secure the maximum amount possible for away fans.
The tickets were sold via the Loyalty Points system to be as fair as possible to Wolves’ supporters.
There will be no further tickets available to Wolves fans for this fixture.
Everyone at the club would like to re-iterate their thanks and appreciation for the excellent backing so far this season.
