Molineux redevelopment remains on hold

Molineux redevelopment remains on hold

Four years ago Wolverhampton Wanderers announced exciting plans to redevelop Molineux.

The initial proposed £40 million regeneration would see capacity increased to 36,000 and originally had been scheduled to be completed by the start of the 2014/15 season.

Stage one began three years ago with the demolition of the Stan Cullis Stand and a new two-tier stand built in its place, the grounds capacity rose from around 29,000 to approximately 31,700.

It cost an estimated £16-20million.

The next stage was then set to be demolition of the Steve Bull Stand, with new two tier stands built to replace them.

The Jack Harris stand will remain, but with an addition tier added.

However stage two was put on hold following back-to-back relegations from the Premier League and the Championship.

This season has seen Wolves bounce straight back to the second tier at the first attempt, but the focus remains on the £8million redevelopment of the Compton Park training ground, with Molineux expansion plans remaining on the back burner.

"It`s exactly the same situation as it was - we`re concentrating on the training ground.

"That project is well under way - we`re halfway through it - the steelwork is being erected and that`s where our capital expenditure is being focused on this season and it won`t be finished until September.' Wolves Chief executive Jez Moxey told the Express & Star.

He continued: 'There are no plans at the moment to do anything structural with Molineux.

"Capacity crowds and demand and football success would ultimately change that. But we hope to see a rise in crowds from this season to next season."
