Wolves fans far from happy after seeing club’s latest tweet

Wolves fans far from happy after seeing club’s latest tweet, which was an announcement over entering an eSports tournament.

The frustration and anger isn’t so much aimed at the eSports, but instead the lack of signings being made with the transfer window now over.

Lille defender Sven Botman fell through on Deadline Day, with Tim Spiers claiming the Premier League outfit were willing to pay £25m for Botman, and the defender was on the verge of agreeing to move to Molineux but Lille wanted £35m before letting him go.

Both clubs refused to compromise, meaning that the deal fell through on the final day of the transfer window.

They were linked with another Ligue 1 defender in Duje Caleta-Car, but the Croatian international reportedly refused to leave Marseille.

Wolves failed to sign a single player on Tuesday, despite being linked with the likes of Renato Sanches, Boubacar Kamara and Kieffer Moore, as they endured a hugely frustrating Deadline Day.

Now the club have tweeted an announcement, but it wasn’t what the fans were wanting to hear.


Wolves have become the first football club to enter the King Pro League esports tournament in Asia, after Fosun Sports announced the acquisition of champion team Chongqing QGhappy.

With Fosun Sports expanding its esports footprint, QGhappy will become part of the Wolves Esports family, and although changing its name to Chongqing Wolves, will continue to be the home team of southwest China’s Chongqing.

QGhappy was founded in 2017, and has won three KPL tournaments; Spring, Autumn and Champions Cup, in the same year, before winning the Champions Cup in 2018 and 2019 successively.

The team were also the first team to win all four Honor of Kings World Champions Cups in 2021, beating Foshan GK to win the team’s sixth title. Team member Captain Fly also won his third FMVP skin and won his third KPL Finals MVP, making Fly the most FMVPs in the history of the KPL league.

The acquisition is part of Fosun Sports’ global esports layout, with Wolves being one of the earliest esports clubs in the Premier League.

In 2018, Wolves officially entered the esports industry, with FIFA, Rocket League and racing teams in the UK, and partnerships with Fortnite and other popular esports projects.

Since 2019, Fosun Sports began to expand its esports market in China, with Wolves Esports (China) consisting of teams in FIFA Online 4, Call of Duty Mobile and Identity V, and has achieved many good results in international and domestic competitions, with Wolves Esports’ Identity V team winning the Champion of Summer League final last month.

In August, Fosun Sports announced its investment in Evil Geniuses, a north American esports giant, officially entering the North American esports market, and the acquisition of QGhappy is an equivalent move by Fosun to accelerate its deep development in the esports field.

Fosun Sports will continue to provide the existing resources to Chongqing Wolves as well as strengthening brand operations to enhance the competitive level of the team, brand influence, experience and commercial value, in an effort to forge a more influential esports club brand.

Commenting on the acquisition, Deng Houjun, president of Fosun Sports, said: “Fosun Sports will continue to increase its investment in esports in the future. We are optimistic about esports and KPL is the most important part of our esports industry.

“After the completion of the acquisition, Fosun Sports has formed a parallel trend in China, North America and Europe esports market, our strength in esports will be greatly supplemented.

“Welcome QGhappy to the Fosun Sports family.”

As mentioned, Wolves fans are far from happy after seeing the club’s latest tweet, see what they said below…

@nickgoff79: I saw this coming to be fair. Remember coming out of Blundell Park after Bully’s hat trick saying to my Great Uncle Wilf what this club really needs now is to enter the Kung Po League by taking over Chending QPRhappy. He looked at me like I was mad, but I was proved right.

@xGJHP: Can they play CM?

@LukeBowdler: I always dreamt this day would come.

@james_wwfc_: Nice to know what Jeff was spending his time doing on deadline day

@TheWaddd: We’ve spent more money on esports than transfers

@WolvesFirst: How not to read your fanbase.

@_TightWadBill: Got a bigger squad than our football team ffs

@FinDeeley: What a signing, unreal pull

@WolvesNumber37: If this funds Renato Sanches and Botman in January then fair enough

@_brad_fisher_: There’s a reason we’re the first ones…

@tod1877: I can’t wait to belt out “Champions of the King Pro League in Asia…you’ll never sing that”

@_KKWWFC: Not very QGhappy about this lads, can’t lie.

@v6lITCKwC9be39t: I can’t believe the Botman moneys gone on e-sports

@wolfie2244: I can’t lie, I was in a bad place when the Sanches moved collapse. Being so close to a genuine worldie playing for your club can do that to a man. But now I’ve seen this it’s made up for it all. The transfer window, forgiven in an instant. Can’t believe QGhappy plays for my club

@danohagan: I’d rather we’d signed a striker and a central midfielder last week if I’m honest.

@charlie_bish93: This alright then lads @Wolves all is forgiven for not getting botman xxx

@C7Burton: How about we look at the actual team and get that sorted? Nobody around the World will care about Wolves from Wolverhampton when we’re in the Championship. At least us local guys will still be around though!
