The Wolves/Silverbug association goes back 15 years, when Wolves became one of Silverbug’s first clients. Since then the two organisations have had a successful working relationship, with Silverbug being a key part of major IT infrastructure projects, such as the £22 million Stan Cullis Stand redevelopment, £8 million Academy development at Compton Park, as well as providing 24/7 IT helpdesk support for the whole business.

Jez Moxey, Wolves chief executive, said: “We’re delighted to welcome Silverbug on board as the main club sponsor for the 2015/16 season. We have a 15 year-strong association with Silverbug, whilst their managing director Owen Daley has been a Wolves supporter since he was a youngster.

Silverbug have been a crucial business partner for Wolves for well over a decade. They have played a key role in helping us deliver our club plans and have ensured we stay at the very forefront of IT developments, benefiting the club and supporters.”

Daley said: “Having been involved with the Club behind the scenes for 15 years, I personally know the Wolves family very well and so when the opportunity came up I grabbed it with both hands.”
