The Portuguese influence at Wolverhampton Wanderers football club is well known, with the newly promoted team now playing in the English Premiership with more players from Portugal in their squad than Porto and the same number as S. L. Benfica – a current count of eight.

Manager Nuno Espirito Santo leads the team including Portugal´s national team goalkeeper Rui Patrício, Ruben Neves, Helder Costa, Ivan Cavaleiro, Diogo Jota, Ruben Vinagre and real local boy João Moutinho, the midfielder from Portimão. Aged 31, Moutinho holds the third highest caps for Portugal at 113. The team just missed a draw on Sunday in a thrilling match with Tottenham Hotspur.
Worldwide Wolves network is officially recognised by the football club and expanded this season to spread the word of Wolves as far as Dubai and Melborne. More than 70 official supporter clubs have now been formed. Algarve Wolves can be contacted direct via native Midlands girl Amy Grace, 42, who lives in Lagoa, via their new Facebook page

A lifelong Wolves fan, she says: “As a child I supported Wolves in the fourth and then third division and watched in the Steve Bull glory days! My parents and grandparents have all been lifelong Wolves supporters and I was delighted to take my own young son to Molineux to see Wolves play Manchester City earlier this season. I hope that with Algarve Wolves, we can find a community out here who would like to meet to watch matches and to share news. There is now a Worldwide Supporters lounge at Molineux and the opportunity to bid for match day tickets in a special area of the stadium. Please get in touch if you would like to find out more, but find us on Facebook and share your Wolves stories! With our Portuguese player connections, Algarve Wolves are considered as “royalty” amongst the various supporters clubs!

If you are interested in setting up a Lisbon Wolves or Porto Wolves team, please also contact Amy.
