Fan Advisory Board

Fan Advisory Board

In addition to the existing fan engagement and consultation initiatives, the club will launch a new fan advisory board ahead of the 2023/24 season.

The purpose of the fan advisory board is to create a consultative panel of supporters who would work alongside the club with the primary purpose of engaging in dialogue, exchanging information/ideas and securing feedback from the fan’s perspective.

To achieve consistency between the club’s other fan engagement and consultation initiatives, the fan advisory board is made up of a representative from each of the club’s fan focus groups along with a representative from the Wolves 1877 Supporters Trust, a representative from the Wolves Disabled Supporters Association and an independent supporter representative. Supporters on the panel will then nominate a panel chairperson.

Russell Jones is the club’s nominated board level official responsible for fan engagement and consultation. In addition to this, the fan advisory board meetings will also include members of the senior management team based on items in each meeting’s agenda. A representative from the club’s ownership will also attend at least one fan advisory panel meeting per season. Special guests or advisors may also attend if deemed appropriate.

The fan advisory panel would meet a minimum of twice a season. Meetings will be arranged by the club however the fan advisory board members will elect chairperson who would work with the nominated board level official to organise meetings and to set meeting agendas. Meetings will be held either at Molineux or Virtually

The FAB would be expected to discuss the following topics during a season.

  • The club’s strategic vision and objectives
  • Short, medium and long-term business plans
  • Club performance updates, priorities, and plans
  • Operational matchday issues of concern to supporters
  • Any proposals relating to significant changes to club heritage items
  • Stadium issues and plans
  • Club’s community strategy
  • EDI commitments
  • Plans for broader supporter engagement

On the pitch matters or commercially sensitive matters will not be discussed in this forum.

The introduction of the fan advisory board follows consultation with the Wolves 1877 Trust.

Daniel Warren Wolves 1877 Trust Chair said: "We have had ongoing discussions with Wolves about setting up a Fan Advisory Board from a very early stage and they have been very open in discussing their plans with the Trust. We are very encouraged to see this announcement and look forward to playing an active role in the Fan Advisory Board and its development over the coming seasons. We believe this is a continuation of a process where fans have a direct stake in the decision-making process at the club."
