Wolves supporters from across the globe travelled a combined mileage of more than 60,000 to take to the Molineux pitch last weekend.
Members of the Worldwide Wolves group travelled from countries all over the world to attend Saturday’s penultimate Premier League fixture of the season against Everton, which took place ahead of the annual Worldwide Wolves international friendly.
The second fixture of its kind saw 30 supporters travel to Wolverhampton and split into two 15-man squads, one in the club’s old gold home kit and the other in the changed away kit.
Squads were made up of players from the UK, Ireland, India, USA, Jersey, Italy, Spain, Sweden, Canada, Germany and Cyprus.
In the glorious Wolverhampton sun, those donning the club’s away strip ran out 6-4 winners, during an entertaining battle at Molineux.
Multiple supporter clubs, of which there are now 168, were represented on Saturday – ranging from Bridgnorth and Smethwick to New York and Ohio in the United States.
Alan Perrins, Worldwide Wolves manager, said: “Our Worldwide Wolves members came home this weekend in every sense of the word, and it was fantastic to welcome so many supporters back to Molineux.
“It was incredible to see so many familiar and happy faces on the Friday night, as we filmed part two of Play for Wolves, and the same for Saturday, with a packed out Worldwide Wolves Lounge. Memories of a lifetime were created, and we were proud to reward these incredibly loyal supporters from around the globe.”
As well as the fixture, visiting supporters were able to enjoy the Worldwide Wolves Lounge pre-match, where legendary goal scorer Steve Bull was in attendance, as was 2003 play-off winning defender Paul Butler.
As part of the end of season celebrations, Butler awarded London Wolves with the UK Supporters Club of the Year and Irish Wolves with the Overseas Supporters Club of the Year award.
Other awards handed out on the day were as follows:
- Outstanding contribution: Tony Lawlor, Irish Wolves.
- Most improved supporter club: Scotland (Andrew Marshall & John Simcox).
- Mark Hadley Clubman of the Year: David Koppe, New York Wolves.
