Premier League hopefuls Wolverhampton to travel down under

Wolverhampton Wanderers will travel to Australia to play a friendly against Perth Glory in England's off-season. Wolves are currently sitting on top of the Championship table and are an enormous chance to win promotion to the top flight.

Glory officials are awaiting confirmation on the match as Wolves are still to sign off and Football Federation Australia are still to approve it.

Perth deputy chairman Lou Giuliani was excited about the event.

"This is a watershed moment in Perth Glory's Hyundai A-League history," said Giuliani.

"Perth Glory is committed to winning on and off the field and this is one of many successful opportunities that we are set to announce in the coming months.

"Our ability to bring Wolves to Perth is a true indication of (owner) Tony Sage's commitment to Perth Glory and the West Australian community.

"He has underwritten the tour to ensure that Glory receives a significant kick start into a new and exciting era.

"We've said we are committed to action and making things happen and this is a wonderful start." Fox Sports reported that Wolverhampton are expected to spend about 12 days in Perth, taking on the Glory and possibly a WA State side.

The exact dates are yet to be confirmed, although it is expected it will be in the latter stages of the A-League pre-season.
