2 min read

Molineux will host the fourth edition of the under-17 Premier League Cup final between Wolves and Chelsea this week.

The golden palace was confirmed as the venue to host the showpiece finale of the competition on Thursday, 11th April, at 7pm.

Richard Walker’s side safely navigated their way through the group stage, before defeating Leicester City in the quarter-final and Stoke City in the semi-final.

Minkyu Ji’s last-minute winner at Clayton Wood secured a 2-1 victory against the Potters to set up a clash with Chelsea.

After making their own way out of the group, the Blues beat current holders Tottenham Hotspur and previous winners Manchester City and will now go head-to-head with the Old Gold.

Wolves season ticket holders can gain free entry into the fixture, while tickets for non-season ticket holders are priced at £3 for adults and £2 for concessions.


Academy managers, Jon Hunter-Barrett and Laura Nicholls, said: “We are delighted that Molineux has been secured to host the U17 Premier League Cup final.

“After such strong runs to get to this stage of the competition, a final in our home stadium is a well-deserved reward for both groups of players and staff.

“Equally, a Molineux finale gives us a great opportunity to really push the game to Wolves supporters and invite them to get behind Richard and the team, and get a closer look at our exciting young talent coming through.

“We are always encouraging Molineux fixtures where possible, as the experience can prove vital in the development of our players and ready them for any potential appearances there or at other main stadia in the future.

“Our thanks go to all involved for making this showpiece final possible and we look forward to welcoming Chelsea and supporters of both sides for what we are sure will be a special night under the lights.”
