Wolves’ Premier League season opener against Leicester City at the King Power Stadium has been moved to Sunday 11th August, kick-off at 2pm.
The fixture was originally scheduled for Saturday 10th August, however due to Wolves’ potential involvement in the third qualifying round of the Europa League on Thursday 8th August, a joint decision between both clubs has been made to agree to a new date for the fixture now to avoid additional disruption to both sets of supporters.
Should Wolves progress past Crusaders or B36 Torshavn, Nuno Espirito Santo’s side will compete in the third qualifying round of the Europa League, however their involvement in this stage would not be confirmed until eight days before the opening weekend of the Premier League season, leaving little time for supporters to make arrangements to attend the game.
As a result both clubs, in consultation with the Premier League, decided it was important to provide clarity to both sets of supporters and avoid the possibility of plans being disrupted at short notice.
Ticket information for travelling Wolves supporters will be announced in due course.
