England: Wolves open new stand Though not with the kind of performance they were hoping for. Poor result on the pitch was a bit of a spoil for the shiny stand in black and yellow that replaced former Stan Cullis Stand.


Bearing the very same name, new structure is a lot larger than its predecessor. Not only in terms of capacity (7,798, allowing Molineux to exceed 30,000 first time since reconstruction in 1993), but also in terms of infrastructure.

New kiosks, offices and megastore on floor level are all wrapped in yellow and black brickwork with additional cladding on top, just under new roof, supported by two large pylons.

This development came in a rather unfortunate moment for the club that was just relegated from Premier League in May and this Saturday struggled to beat the League Two Aldershot Town in League Cup clash, winning only in penalties (7:6 after 1:1 at full time).

Lack of Premier League cashflow is among reasons for the stadium's further redevelopment to be ceased. Right now work was to start on another stand to be replaced by similar structure designed by AFL Architects, but was halted.
