WOLVES SHOWN 14 TIMES ON TV!
WOLVES chief executive Jez Moxey is concerned at the amount of games the club have had to move for TV coverage.
They have had 14 matches switched, more than any other Championship club.
The latest was at Middlesbrough on Friday, when they took fewer than 250 fans, in protest at the £32 tickets.
Moxey said: “Fixture changes impact on everyone, but particularly on football supporters, who are being inconvenienced to such a level we think it is becoming a genuine problem.
“It’s been a tough season on the pitch so far for our supporters. At £32, the ticket prices are high for fans travelling to the match and Middlesbrough is a long way.
“Regardless of these facts, Wolves taking fewer than 250 fans to an away league match is unprecedentedly low.
“As chief executive officer and one of the directors of the Football League, I’m highlighting these concerns.
“The rearrangement of too many fixtures for broadcast purposes is a serious issue.
“It’s in everyone’s interest to have our stadia as full as possible with noisy, passionate football fans.
“They (Sky and the Football League) are great partners, but together we must be brave enough to acknowledge any concerning trends in the game – and we think this is one of them.
“We must all work together towards finding the right balance.”
