By Car

Be aware that the M6 between junctions 6 and 10 is one of the busiest stretches of motorway in Europe, so allow plenty of time. For evening games, approach Wolverhampton from junction 2 of the M5.

From North and East: Exit M6 at junction 13 (s/p Wolverhampton A449). From here the route is simple - keep following signs to Wolverhampton A449. After 9.0 miles, go straight on under the M54.

Go straight on for 2.7 miles, over three roundabouts, picking up signs to the Molineux Centre, to a 4th roundabout by the British Gas works. Go straight on (s/p Wolverhampton A449), under two railway bridges to 5th roundabout, dominated by a red-bricked building (the Five Ways roundabout).

Here take 3rd exit (s/p Molineux Centre, University North) into Waterloo Road. Ground is on LHS after 0.4 miles.

From East (Weekends Only): Exit M6 at junction 10. At motorway roundabout, follow signs to Wolverhampton A454, Dudley onto the A454 dual carriageway.

Exit after 1.3 miles at the Keyway junction (s/p Wolverhampton A454, Willenhall). At next two roundabouts follow signs for Wolverhampton A454 onto the Willenhall Road (still the A454).

After 2.2 miles all traffic swings to the left (s/p Ring Road, Town Centre A454) onto Middle Cross, to roundabout. Take 4th exit (s/p Ring Road, Stafford A449) onto Ring Road. Ground is on RHS after 0.6 miles.

From South: Exit M5 at junction 2 (s/p A4123 Dudley, Wolverhampton). At motorway roundabout take 1st exit, and then 3rd exit at next roundabout (s/p Dudley, Wolverhampton A4123) onto the A4123 dual carriageway.

Follow signs to Wolverhampton A4123 for 7.6 miles, when all traffic swings left (s/p Wolverhampton Town Centre A4123), and then right (s/p Town Centre A4123) into Dudley Road.

At Snow Hill Junction turn right (s/p Ring Road East, Motorway M6, Walsall A454) onto Ring Road. Ground is signposted right (Molineux Centre) off Ring Road after 1.0 miles.

Parking
Either street parking; a car park in Faulkland Street recommended by police or try the multi-storeys in town centre - about 10 min walk away. Cars parked in small, unofficial car parks around the ground will get vandalised.

By Train

Nearest Station
Wolverhampton - 0.5 mile away from stadium (10-15mins walk). Straight out of station and over the bridge. Keep left and under covered walkway into Litchfield Street, passing Grand Theatre on left. At lights turn right towards Prince's Square, and straight on to ring road and turn left.

By Metro: A recent metro line has been put in place from Snow Hill station in Birmingham to a new station in Bilston Street, Wolverhampton.

By Bus: From Stand R of the bus station, by the railway station - 503, 504 and 506 run right by the ground.

Where to Eat?

Many burger vans surround the stadium. There's supermarket outside Molineux plus a sandwich shop, which has gorgeous pork baps with stuffing and apple sauce, on the way to the ground from the station.

There's a mobile Indian take-away behind the Jack Harris stand called Mr Tikka and a 'pig roast' outside the away turnstyles. Food in the away end is good - check out the chicken balti pie.

Where to Drink?

Away fans are not admitted to pubs around Molineux. Best bet is to have a pint in the stadium or stop on route at Birmingham New Street.

If going by car, try The Black Horse, in Thompson Avenue, or The Spread Eagle, in Birmingham New Road, both on the A4123.

Or if travelling by train, try The Great Western, behind Wolverhampton station.

What's their ground like?

Palace fans will be seated in the corner of the Jack Harris stand with an allocation of 1,500. Here the view, legroom and facilities, which include a Ladbrokes, are good.

The stadium itself is superb - and the big screen TVs are great for replays etc. The pitch looks a lot bigger than it is because of the big gap between the fans and the pitch.

*After the game, make sure you hide your colours as Palace fans have been attacked outside for the past two seasons. Watch out in particular for the subway tunnel and the ramp leading up to the road.

What do they sing?

We are Wolves! Also: Fight, fight wherever you may be,
We are the boys of the Black Country,
And we'll beat you all, wherever you may be
We are the boys of the Black Country.

Songs to sing back

The Wolves are going nowhere!

Who do they hate?

Mostly West Brom, but also Birmingham City, Aston Villa and Stoke
