Wolves set for hectic pre-season should they qualify for Europa League
Last Updated: 08/05/19 12:34pm
Wolves are set to play three games in eight days during July, either side of an 11,500 mile round trip to Shanghai, if they qualify for next season's Europa League.
The club have committed to play in the pre-season Asia Trophy in China against Manchester City, West Ham and Newcastle.
But if Manchester City beat Watford in the FA Cup Final, Wolves will win a place in the Europa League, thanks to the seventh-placed Premier League finish which is now guaranteed.
Wolves would join the second qualifying round of the Europa League - the first leg for that fixture is on July 25 - less than four days after the squad returns from China.
The organisers of the Asia Trophy have liaised with Wolves' bosses to ensure there is no fixture clash with the Europa League, but it promises to be a very hectic schedule for Wolves, long before the Premier League season starts on August 10.
