Wolves' Fans Buying Tickets For Carabao Cup Don't Expect To Go
Life back in the Premier League isn't all it's meant to be cracked up to be for Wolves' fans just yet and now they're set to stay away from their Carabao Cup game, despite buying tickets.
The Premier League tops most clubs list of priorities in the top tier of English football. Whether it's winning it, staying in it or finishing as high as humanly possible everyone wants to do will in the league first.
European competitions can be equally important for some teams but it's also about finishing in the top six to make sure you do that the next year and get all the lovely money.
Then comes the FA Cup. It doesn't always get the love it once had but the prestige is still there and we all love an early cupset.
Finally though is the poor Carabao, EFL, Capital One, Carling, Worthington, Coca Cola, Rumbelows, Littlewoods Challenge, Milk, Football League cup - to give it its full title - the unloved child of football in this country.
No one really shows the Carabao much love and that's true of Wolves fans. Their side play Sheffield Wednesday next week and it seems some are staying at home despite buying tickets to make sure they have loyalty points:
Apparently fans are buying tickets for the cup game v Sheff Weds to only boost their loyalty points, with no intention of attending :tickets:.- Wolves Fancast (@WWFCFancast) August 22, 2018
The actual attendance will be interesting. Just like when 16,472 voted in Baldrick into parliament from Dunny-on-the-wold. #wolves #wwfc
The points system means that fans can buy tickets to away games where there is more demand and less supply of away tickets. Fans with more points get preference on buying tickets for the games.
So buying tickets for Sheffield Wednesday means it's more likely you'll get them for Manchester City or Chelsea later in the season.
Wolves are expected to do well this season after decent amounts of investment but so far they've drawn 2-2 with Everton and lost 2-0 against Leicester City.
The Carabao Cup would be a good chance of going far, not that their fans will be there to see.
