Wolverhampton Wanderers - commonly known as Wolves - were formed in 1877 as St Luke's FC and became founder members of the Football League in 1888.

They currently play in the Premier League, attracting attendances of more than 30,000 at Molineux.

Wolves became one of the first teams to install floodlights at their stadium in 1953-1954. 

They played a number of matches under the lights against European opponents, including a famous 3-2 success against Honved of Hungary. Many of the Hungarian players who had just beaten England twice played for Honved, meaning Wolves were dubbed "champions of the world" after their victory.

The floodlit games played by Wolves helped pave the way towards the European Cup, now known as the UEFA Champions League.

In 1972, Wolves reached the final of the first UEFA Cup - now known as the UEFA Europa League - where they lost an all-English affair to Tottenham Hotspur.

Honours for Wolves include three league titles, all under manager Stan Cullis. The club has won the FA Cup four times and the League Cup twice.

Legendary striker Steve Bull - signed from arch rivals West Brom - scored more than 50 goals in consecutive seasons in the late 1980s, the only player to achieve this feat.
