Wolverhampton Wanderers Football Club  ( listen), commonly referred to as Wolves, is an English professional football club based in the city of Wolverhampton in the West Midlands. Originally known as St Luke's F.C., the club was formed in 1877 and has played at its home ground, Molineux Stadium, since 1889. It currently competes in the Premier League, the top tier of English football, as a result of winning the EFL Championship in the 2017–18 season.

Wolves was one of the founding members of the Football League in 1888 and, apart from six seasons, has always played in one of the top two tiers of English football. The club spent 33 years in the top flight from 1932 to 1965, their longest continuous period at that level (albeit league football was in hiatus from 1939 to 1946 due to World War II). During the 1950s, the club was English league champions three times (1953–54, 1957–58 & 1958–59), whilst under the management of Stan Cullis. Wolves has also finished runners-up in the league on five occasions (most recently in 1959–60) and in third place on a further six occasions (most recently in 1960–61).

Wolves has won the FA Cup four times, most recently in 1960, and has finished runners-up on a further four occasions. The club has also won the Football League Cup twice, in 1974 and 1980.

In the 1950s, Wolves was one of the first British clubs to install floodlights and, by taking part in televised "floodlit friendlies" against leading overseas teams, played an instrumental role in the creation of the European Cup. In European competition, the team reached the quarter-final stage of the 1959–60 European Cup and the semi-final stage of the 1960–61 European Cup Winners' Cup, and were runners-up to Tottenham Hotspur in the inaugural UEFA Cup Final in 1972.

The club originally used the St Luke's school colours of red and white. These were soon superseded by Wolves' traditional gold shirts and black shorts. The original club badge was the Wolverhampton city coat of arms; since the 1960s, the club has used badges depicting one or more wolves. Wolves have long-standing rivalries with other West Midlands clubs; the main one is with West Bromwich Albion, against whom they contest the Black Country derby.
