Wolverhampton Wanderers FC


Founded: 1877, Stadium: Molineux Stadium, Capacity: 32,050

A founding member of the Football League, the club had their golden age in the 1950s, winning the first division league title three times. The press nicknamed them “Champion of the World” due to their wins over several European and international clubs at that time. Wolves have won the FA Cup four times, most recently in 1960. Wolves have long-standing rivalries with other West Midlands clubs, main one being West Bromwich Albion, against whom they contest the Black Country derby, although the two clubs have not met since 2011-12, the last time they competed in the same division. The first Wolves crest was the coat of arms of Wolverhampton City council. In the late 1960s Wolves introduced their own club badge that appeared on their shirts consisting of a single leaping wolf, which late become three leaping wolves in the mid-1970s. Since 1979 the badge has consisted of a single “wolf head” design; the current badge was redesigned in 2002.
