Plans to transform part of the Molineux Stadium in Wolverhampton, UK, have been revealed.

The £40m ($57.9m) transformation will include the replacement of the Stan Cullis and Steve Bull stands by new two-tier structures for the 2014/15 season.

The stadium is the home ground of Wolverhampton Wanderers football club, which is owned by Steve Morgan, who will deliver the project.

A planning application for the first phase of work will be submitted in July and the second phase of work will begin in 2012.

The plan also involves modernising the remaining two stands taking the ground capacity to around 50,000.

A new top tier will be added to the Jack Harris stand and the Billy Wright stand will be completely rebuilt, according to constructionenquirer.com.
