Wolves have received communication from RCD Espanyol with important updates to arrangements for Thursday’s Europa League fixture, which are highly important for supporters who have purchased tickets directly through Wolves for the trip.
Anyone purchasing tickets independently of Wolves should follow any information or advice given by Espanyol.
The Spanish police have advised these changes for the safety of official Wolves supporters and to assist with the safe arrival at Estadi Cornellà-El Prat. On police advice all supporters with tickets for the away end are requested to meet at Plaza Espanya in good time to catch the 5pm trains to the stadium.
Please note that there will be three trains carrying up to 2,400 supporters and will be the only trains that will have a dedicated police presence for the protection of Wolves fans. All other trains will be mixed and have RCD Espanyol supporters on board.
Please contact the ticket office or visit tickets.wolves.co.uk to pre-purchase a return train ticket, which will be on sale until 5pm on Tuesday 25th February. Train tickets will also be available to purchase at the time of collecting tickets in Barcelona.
Supporters travelling by train should disembark at the FGC Cornellà Almeda station, and not the Cornellà Riera as previously advised. From here you will be escorted directly to the away section entry point where you will be required to present your match ticket and copy of your passport, which must be clear and in colour.
Turnstiles open at 5pm for the 6.55pm kick-off. Any supporters arriving after 5.30pm are not guaranteed to be in their seat for the start of the game, due to the strict entry controls in place.
On police advice we have to close the ticket collection point at 4pm to allow all supporters sufficient time to travel to the stadium. Any late arrivals will have to collect their tickets at the stadium, in a location to be confirmed.
Anyone travelling with Sport Options will also need to follow the steps above as the coaches with drop off and pick up at Plaza Espanya as there are no parking facilities at the stadium.

Furthermore, all supporters making the trip to RCD Espanyol should be aware that there is a small number of confirmed cases of Coronavirus in Barcelona, as there have been in parts of the UK.
Wolves supporters are urged to travel with caution and encouraged to comply with any additional screening measures put in place by local authorities.
