Wolves have agreed a potential seven figure, two-year main sponsorship agreement with whathouse.co.uk, the specialist new homes portal, which will begin from June 2013.
What House? will have an extensive range of Wolves’ rights and their brand - whathouse.co.uk - will appear on the home and away first team shirts and on all technical training kit.
What House? who currently sponsor the back of Wolves’ shirts, have decided to change their brand from red to black for the new first team home shirt to better complement Wolves’ iconic colours.
What House? replaces global online betting company – Sportingbet – who’ve successfully completed the sale of their business to William Hill. Sportingbet have been Wolves’ main sponsors since June 2009, after originally signing a two-year deal.

Jez Moxey, Chief Executive, Wolves, said, “We’re delighted that What House? have decided to become our main sponsor, after a year supporting the Club as the sponsor of the back of the first team shirts.
“They are a national brand, providing an exceptional service to the thousands of whathouse.co.uk users looking to purchase a new home.
“This is an important commercial agreement for the Club and a great, tangible endorsement for the way we deliver value for our portfolio of sponsors.
“We’re very much looking forward to working closely with What House? to increase the awareness of www.whathouse.co.uk across the country.”
Rupert Bates, editorial director of whathouse.co.uk. said: “After an excellent working relationship in our first season with Wolves, significant commercial results and increased brand awareness, when the opportunity arose to move from the back of the shirt to the front as the main club sponsor and partner we jumped at it.
“Results on the pitch have of course been disappointing. But Wolverhampton Wanderers is a big club, with loyal and passionate support. Wolves, with its iconic old gold and black colours, has a rich and evocative history and the club will bounce back.
“We are totally committed to helping Wolves return to where they belong among the elite of English football and at the same time using the partnership to promote our brand and help new home buyers across the UK."
