Rising ticket prices have been a big issue in the world of football for years now, with some fans believing that it is killing the spirit of the game. Regardless, it seems like the gradual rise will continue despite certain teams taking a stand to it.

As reported by Express & Star, Wolverhampton Wanderers are one of those aforementioned sides as they have announced that they will be halving ticket prices for the clash against Sheffield Wednesday, which also happens to fall on the 30th anniversary of legends Steve Bull and Andy Thompson joining the club.

Between the two they made over 1,000 appearances for the Midlands side as they were credited with helping to turn the club's fortunes around when they were in their darkest hour. Now thirty years on, there are many plans as to how the occasion will be commemorated.

“We are always looking at ways to try and encourage more supporters to return to Molineux,” said Wolves Managing Director Laurie Dalrymple when speaking to Express & Star.

“Making the most of home advantage with our fantastic support is vitally important, especially in the Championship where games are so closely contested.

“The ticket offer should also help ensure we can provide a fitting tribute to two Wolves legends," he added.

“The club is still in very close touch with Bully and Thommo, and we will be delighted to officially recognise the anniversary of their signing for the club by inviting them and their friends and family to the game.”

Regardless of what it is, Wolves fans will be hoping that something can spur the club on after a poor run of results has left them in the bottom half of the table.

The Wanderers have a winnable run of fixtures coming up as Walter Zenga attempts to ease some of the pressure surrounding his tenure at Molineux.
