Awayday Guide: Wolverhampton Wanderers
Slavisa Jokanovic’s Fulham side travel to Molineux tomorrow night for their third fixture of a busy week against the current Championship leaders, Wolverhampton Wanderers. This match has been moved forward to Friday night from its original Saturday afternoon slot to facilitate live television coverage on Sky Sports Football and will now kick off at 7.45pm
Fulham were initially allocated 1,816 tickets in the Stan Cullis stand upper tier. There are four loyalty points on offer for supporters who book a ticket and, anyone mulling over a late decision to travel to the Midlands must buy their tickets by 2pm tomorrow afternoon. No tickets will be sold on the gate at Molineux. Fulham fans wishing to get a ticket should call the Club’s ticket hotline on 0203 871 0810 or pay a personal visit to the Craven Cottage ticket office on Stevenage Road. Tickets are priced at £25 for adults, £15 for those aged over 65 or under 21, £12 for under 17s and £5 for under 12s. A family ticket (for two adults and two juniors) is available for £40.
GETTING TO MOLINEUX
Exit the M6 at Junction 10 and join the A454 heading towards Wolverhampton. There are a number of speed cameras on the way into the city that drivers should be wary of. When you reach the traffic lights that intersect with the ring road, turn right and the ground is soon visible to the right of a second set of traffic lights.
There is no street parking available at Molineux so supporters should opt for one of the numerous pay and display options in the city centre. The closest option is the Civic Hall Car Park, which will charge £2 for motorists arriving after 5pm. There is also street parking on an industrial estate close to Wolverhampton train station, located in Kennedy Road, off Culwell Street. This is about ten minutes’ walk from Molineux.
Direct trains are available from London Euston to Wolverhampton and supporters can also change at Birmingham New Street. Molineux is around 15 minutes’ walk from the station. Heading out of the main station concourse, go straight on towards the city centre and turn right at the inner ring road. The ring road will wind round in a circular fashion towards the line and the ground will become visible on the right.
Fulham’s official coaches will leave Craven Cottage and opposite the Earl Beatty pub on West Barnes Lane outside Motspur Park train station at 2.45pm. Places are still available on either coach and they are priced at £17 for adult season ticket holders and members and £10 for junior season ticket holders and members. The general sale prices are £22 for adults and £15 for juniors. Coach tickets must now be booked by phoning the Fulham ticket hotline on 0203 871 0810 or visiting the ticket office.
There are very few openly away-fan friendly pubs in the vicinity of Molineux. In addition most of the city centre pubs are designated as home fans only venues on a matchday and several of the others listed here may require you to cover up any colours on display.
The two best options for Fulham fans are the Bohemian Bar (25-27 Lichfield Street, WV1 1EQ) and The Hogshead (186 Stafford Street, WV1 1NA). The Bluebrick Bar at the Wolverhampton City Centre Premier Inn (Broad Gauge Way, WV10 0BA) has previously allowed in away supporters, although they may charge an entrance fee of £2.
A selection of alcohol is available inside the stadium – and that may be the best bet for Fulham fans wishing to drink in large numbers prior to the kick off.
