Wolves’ biggest rivals are fellow West Midlands side West Bromwich Albion, against whom they compete in the Black Country Derby.

Wolves Honours

Wolves’ golden era saw them win the old First Division three times during the 1950s. The club won their first First Division title in the 1953/54 season as they beat out local rivals West Brom by four points. They then went on to win the title in back-to-back years in 1958 and 1959, finishing ahead of Preston North End and Manchester United, respectively, as their closest rivals in each season. They were just one point off of winning three titles on the trot in 1960 as they were pipped to first place by Burnley, in what is one of five occasions in which they have finished as runners-up in the top flight. In addition, Wolves have also won the old Second Division/Championship four times in their history, coming in the 1931/32, 1976/77, 2008/09 and 2017/18 seasons.

They were the first-ever club to win all four divisions in the Football League in England, having also won the Third Division three times in their history and the Fourth Division once. Wolves have also had success in cup competitions too, being four-time winners of the FA Cup in 1893, 1908, 1949 and 1960. They have also twice won the League Cup, which they won in 1974 and 1980, as well as four Charity Shields. Their trophy cabinet is complete with the Football League Trophy, the Football League War Cup and the Texaco Cup.

Wolves History

Wolverhampton Wandererers was founded in 1877, but were first called St. Luke’s before changing to their current name in 1879. In 1888, Wolves became founding members of the Football League and finished third from 12 teams in the first-ever full season played. They then won their first-ever FA Cup in 1893 but were relegated for the first time in 1906. Wolves didn’t make their return to the top flight until the 1932/33 season, but consequently remained in the First Division for more than 30 years in what proved to be a golden era for the club.

Between 1952-1961, the club only finished lower than third place on one occasion in the First Division, being crowned champions of England three times during that period. In addition, they won the 1960 FA Cup and also competed twice in the European Cup (Champions League) and the UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup. Financial issues during the 1980s saw the club fall as low as the Fourth Division following three successive relegations, although they returned to the second tier by the 1992/93 season. In the Premier League era, Wolves had two short spells in the top flight totalling four seasons, before then coming back once again in the 2018/19 campaign under Nuno Espirito Santo.
