Wolves and City of Wolverhampton Council are delighted to announce that all tickets for the West Park Promotion Party have now been issued.
For all supporters who didn't get tickets for the West Park event, there will be ample opportunity to celebrate the club's sensational return to the Premier League, by lining the open top bus route, which takes in Queen's Square, Darlington Street and Waterloo Road. There will also be a big screen in Queen's Square beaming all the action from West Park live.
The council will begin the day by honouring the club’s outstanding achievement with a private civic reception hosted by the Deputy Mayor.
After the civic reception, two open top buses carrying the players and staff will set off from outside Wolverhampton Art Gallery on Lichfield Street at noon.
Supporters will be able to line the route as the buses travel down Lichfield Street, through Queen Square, down Darlington Street, turning into Waterloo Road, across the Ring Road, turning into Newhampton Road East, Lansdowne Road and along Park Road East.
Nuno will then lead his team into West Park where 30,000 Wolves fans will greet their heroes at a free, family-friendly, ticketed party. Nuno and players will address the crowd and show off the trophy. There will be musical performances from special guests, a giant screen, fun fair and refreshments.
Due to the very large numbers of people expected in the city, it is necessary for safety reasons to strictly control the number of fans entering the park. Only people with tickets will be able to go into the park and will need to arrive by 11.30am before the bus parade sets off. There will be no admission to the park after this time.
Fans therefore have the choice to either line the parade route or attend the family party in the park. Fans who choose to line the parade route will be able to watch the park event on a large screen in Queen Square.
After the parade has finished, the staff and players will be heading to the Starworks Warehouse for a promotion party. Tickets for event can be purchased here.
Wolves managing director Laurie Dalrymple said: “We are really looking forward to what will be a fantastic day of celebration for the city of Wolverhampton, and everybody who has played a part in this magnificent season.
“Nuno and the squad have a real desire to thank you for the support they have received throughout the season, so thanks goes to everyone involved who has made this event possible.
“Promotion to the Premier League has been a real team effort, and there seems no more fitting way to celebrate it than together, as one city.”
Keith Ireland, managing director of City of Wolverhampton Council, said: “The council recognises that Wolves outstanding season and return to the top flight is an enormous achievement not only for the amazing Wolves fans, but for the entire city.
“We have been working closely with the club, with the support of West Midlands Police, to organise a promotion party the whole city can enjoy and hope as many people as possible come out to show how proud they are of Wolves with a sea of gold and black.”
Tickets for the party in the park event will be completely free, but limited to four per person. Details of how to apply for tickets will be released via the council and football club’s websites and social media channels on Monday.
Wolves and the City of Wolverhampton Council are grateful to Eastgate Commercial Ltd and Star Works for sponsoring the event.
