Wolves' preparations for the 2024/25 Premier League season will conclude with a pre-season friendly against La Liga side Rayo Vallecano at Molineux.

The match is scheduled for 3pm (UK time) on Saturday, 10th August, just one week before Wolves begin their Premier League campaign against Arsenal.

Rayo Vallecano secured their place in Spain’s top flight last season, finishing 17th.

“We’re looking forward to welcoming Rayo Vallecano to Wolverhampton in August as we round off our pre-season preparations at Molineux,” said Matt Hobbs, Wolves' sporting director. “We know Rayo will provide Gary and the players with a very good test before our seventh consecutive season in the Premier League begins the following weekend.”

Rayo Vallecano’s sporting director, David Cobeno, expressed his enthusiasm for the match, stating, “It’s a pleasure for us to visit a great team from the Premier League, as Wolves are. It will be a big test for us to prepare our debut in La Liga. In addition, I am sure that our supporters will enjoy so much visiting Molineux Stadium.”

As well as the Rayo Vallecano fixtures, Wolves will play West Ham United and Crystal Palace in the United States on the 27th and 31st July respectively before concluding their tour with a 3rd August clash with RB Leipzig in Florida.
