Wolves can confirm that the team will be wearing ‘All Gold’ for tomorrow’s trip to Derby County, and then – for the first time – the new third kit in Tuesday’s Sky Bet Championship fixture at Hull City (7.45pm).
Wolves can also reveal that a further 1,000 adult shirts, from sizes small through to 4XL, have now been ordered following the unprecedented demand for the third kit.
Wolves initially placed a total order of 2,000 for the third kit, mindful that two new kits had already gone on sale during the summer and that the third kit was not going to be used as frequently as the home and away kits this season.
But the demand saw that the adult shirts were sold out by Monday - in store alone - and didn’t reach online sale.
As a result, this further order has now been placed. Pre-orders can be taken now online, but the shirts will not arrive until December due to production schedules. Even with the additional order, the numbers produced are still well below that of the home and away shirts – only 1800 adult shirts in total - and so the kit will still be considered limited edition.
Putting the new stock online only, is designed to help supporters from outside the area who were and remain unable to travel to the Molineux Megastore to purchase the kit if they wish. We understand the efforts many fans had to go to in order to purchase their kit after Saturday’s game. But, with the delivery schedule placed on us by our kit provider in terms of the time until the new batch of shirts is available, those supporters still have enjoyed the first opportunity to wear the new shirts.
A Click and Collect facility will also be available for fans to pick up from the Molineux Megastore if requested.
Juniors, infants and ladies versions of the third kit remain available online and in store.
