A couple of pics from my mooch around Molineux Stadium last year. At the time Wolverhampton Wanderers were near the top of English football in the league standings and this is their ground. I know it is still not an abandoned building or a peely paint sort of place but at the time it was worth checking out the place. Especially with the new stand being built.

I was out and about around the outside of the stadium taking a few snaps of the new stand and I saw an open door and thought hmm this could be a good time to get some interior pics. It's taken me a year to get this report up but after seeing the Darlington Arena, I think it is time I showed you guys the pics. Unfortunately I didn't get on the pitch and got caught quite quickly as you'll see in the pictures. I got in to the tunnel area and the home dressing room and literally got a quick couple of pictures. I gave someone a shock when I walked in to the home dressing room :laugh Anyway on to the info.

Basic info
Quoted from wiki.
Molineux Stadium is a Championship football stadium situated in Whitmore Reans, Wolverhampton, England. It has been the home ground of Wolverhampton Wanderers Football Club since 1889, and has a long and illustrious history as the first 'new build' stadium in Football League history, one of the first grounds in the country to install floodlights, as well as hosting some of the first European club games in the 1950s.
At the time of its multi-million pound renovation in the early 1990s, Molineux was one of the biggest and most modern stadia in England, though it has since been eclipsed by many other ground developments. The stadium has however hosted England internationals and, more recently, England under-21 internationals, as well as the first UEFA Cup Final in 1972. Although currently a 31,700 seater stadium, the record attendance at Molineux stands at 61,315.
Plans were announced in May 2010 to rebuild two sides of the stadium by the 2014–15 season to increase capacity to around 36,000. The first stage of this project began in Summer 2011. There are also provisional future plans for a longer term redevelopment of every stand that could potentially create a 50,000 capacity.
Lets get on to the pics.
