Wolverhampton Wanderers promoted to Premier League

Leave a comment

Sunday will be a party at the Molineux when Wolverhampton Wanderers host Birmingham City in a 7 am. ET kickoff.

That’s because Wolves are back in the Premier League after a six-year hiatus, clinching top flight status while at home on their proverbial couches (and probably in some cases on actual couches).

Brentford scored late to draw third-place Fulham, who can no longer catch the Championship leaders (since November!).

Wolves have a fantastic history, having thrice won the English top flight (predating the Premier League era) with a total of 14 Top Three finishes. It’s won four FA Cups, two League Cups, and was the runner-up in the 1972 UEFA Cup.

Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo is in his first season as a manager in England, and has become known as an electric character. He’s previously managed Porto, Valencia, and Rio Ave.
