Welcome to the first newsletter of 2019
Benefits of membership
As an official member of the Worldwide Wolves Supporters Club (WWSC) scheme, we are able to offer a number of benefits for our own registered members.
The Club has committed to making a number of tickets available for WWSC’s for each home game. These tickets are allocated on a first come first served basis. No guarantee can be made that any WWSC wishing to apply for them will be successful.
If you are planning to travel to the UK and would like to apply for tickets, you must follow these simple steps: –
1. Email Victorian Wolves ([email protected]) with the details of the game you would like to try and obtain tickets for. Please note that due to the high demand for these tickets, applications made by individuals will not be processed. The Club will only process applications made via an official WWSC member.
2. If your application is successful, you will be required to take out a My Wolves membership. This is a requirement set by the Club. The membership lasts for each season and currently costs £25.00 per person. each ticket requires one (1) My Wolves membership number.
3. Once you have obtained your My Wolves membership number the Club’s ticket office will process the purchase of your tickets. Payment is via credit game and is the responsibility of the application. Victorian Wolves cannot purchase these tickets on your behalf.
The club has invested in the WWSC scheme with the creation of a special lounge for members. This lounge is open on match days and can be accessed via invitation. There is a special guest, usually an ex-player, in attendance during the opening hours.
Invitations for the lounge are separate to match day tickets and need to have their own independent application.
If you wish to gain access to the lounge prior to a game, please email Victorian Wolves ([email protected]) stating which game and how many invitations you would like. Again, there is no guarantee that you will receive the number of invitations you have requested. The lounge has a maximum capacity and invitations are spread out to all WWSC’s that request them.
Our own Rob (@MelbourneWolf) was lucky enough to get tickets for our last home game against Leicester.

Upcoming Live Games
Watching the FA Cup 4th Round match against Shrewsbury Town is going to be a bit of a challenge. Wolves TV looks as if they will have live commentary but no vision. The game isn’t being televised in the UK. The lack of enthusiasm for the FA here in Australia is reflected in that none of the free to air or cable TV channels are showing any of the FA cup games until the final! If we identify a way of watching the game, we will let everyone know.
The West Ham game may also prove to be a bit problematic. As Man City are playing the same morning (away at Newcastle) we are hoping they will be opening up as they normally do, given their strong association with Melbourne Man City. If they are opening early, we will try and convince them to show our game on a different screen within the pub.
The Craft Squire may be showing the Man Utd game, but again we will have to rely on them opening early and being prepared to show our game on an alternate screen.
We will post updates via our social media accounts in the coming days.
