Wolverhampton Wanderers FC

One of the oldest and most respected clubs in the country, Wolverhampton Wanderers Football Club became part of the Bridgemere Group in August 2007.

Wolves became founder members of the Football League in 1888 and they reached their first FA Cup Final a year later and won the league in 1953/54, 1957/58 and 1958/59. During the 1950s, the famous floodlit friendlies took place when some of the great continental teams of the time, like Moscow Spartak, Moscow Dynamo, Honved and Real Madrid, all came to Molineux and were beaten. These games led to the development of proper European competition.

In May 1990 Sir Jack Hayward purchased the club and paid an estimated £20 million to re-develop Molineux stadium, transforming it into one of the most modern grounds in the country. In August 2007, the Bridgemere Group paid a nominal £10 for the business and agreed at the same time to invest £30 million into the club.
