General

Wolverhampton Wanderers (also known as Wolves) are an English football club based in the town of Wolverhampton in the West Midlands. The club was founded in 1876 and was one of the founding members of the Football League in 1888. Although they had already won the FA Cup twice, it was only after the Second World War that the club developed into a top club in England.

Between 1949 and 1960, under Stan Cullis, Wolves won the English Championship three times and the FA Cup twice. In the 1950s they were hailed by the media as the best club side in the world after beating top European clubs. However, since then they have not won any major trophies, apart from two League Cup victories (1974 and 1980) and a UEFA Cup final (1972 against Tottenham Hotspur).

From 1983 to 2018, the club only played four seasons in the English top flight. However, under Portuguese manager Nuno Espírito Santo and Chinese owner Fosun, Wolves returned to the Premier League in the 2018/19 season. Wolves are the only club to have won five different Football League championships and also lifted the three most prestigious English cup trophies (FA Cup, League Cup and Football League Trophy).

Molineux Stadium has been the club's home ground since 1889. The Wolves have the greatest rivalry with West Bromwich Albion (WBA), while the duels against Aston Villa and Birmingham City are somewhat less intense. Games against WBA or Walsall FC are known as the Black Country Derby.

Revenues and annual results from Wolverhampton Wanderers in the 2014/15 financial years until 2021/22

In July 2016, Wolverhampton Wanderers Football Club was sold to Chinese company Fosun. Fosun acquired 100% stake in the club and since then has invested heavily in the club's team, stadium and infrastructure. This led, among other things, to promotion to the Premier League and a successful campaign in the 2018/19 season, in which Wolves finished seventh and qualified to play in the Europa League. Fosun retains control of the club and focuses on sustainable development to keep the club on course for long-term success.
