Wolverhampton Wanderers Football Club, commonly known as Wolves, has become the first football club in the UK to provide supporters with real-time arrival information for every match.
Wolves has partnered with mobility solutions provider Moovit to help fans travelling to games at Molineux and every stadium where Wolves play across Europe.
Via the free Moovit app, the Wolves website and the Wolves App, supporters can receive detailed public transport information on how to reach the game and can be guided to dedicated entrances and fan areas. The collaboration said these tools will ensure fans have the most up-to-date and accurate journey planning capabilities at their fingertips.
As part of the partnership, Moovit has created a co-branded multi-modal web app, available on wolves.co.uk and the Wolves App allowing anyone to plan a journey, from their front door to specific stadium entrances.
Fans can use the journey planner to find all transport updates and any service changes to ensure the most direct route and fans never miss kick-off.
Supporters can also use the Moovit app, which guides people in getting around cities effectively and conveniently using any mode of transport. Moovit combines official public transport information with crowdsourced information to calculate the best route for each journey with additional urban mobility options, including bus, rail, bikes, scooters or Uber.
The app also includes accessible features, such as optimised screen reading for low vision users, TalkBack/VoiceOver capabilities, and wheelchair-accessible routes and stations, as well as optimised menus and buttons for those with hand-motor disabilities.
Luke Redfern, Moovit’s partnership manager in the UK and Ireland, said: “We are proud to partner with Wolverhampton Wanderers to help them reach their goal of ensuring that their fans can travel safely with precise public transport information at their fingertips.
“We’re also excited about how the long-term impacts of this partnership will improve the fan experience, which begins from the moment they leave their house. We want to ensure that fans have the best experience travelling to and from the stadium so they never miss a moment of the game.”
