The University of Wolverhampton is proud to be sponsoring an FA Cup second round match.

Macclesfield Town will take on Oxford United on Friday, 2 December 2016 at the Moss Rose Stadium.

Miceal Barden, Dean of the Faculty of Social Sciences, said: “We’re delighted to be working with a number of schools and colleges in the Cheshire area as part of the University’s outreach activities. As part of raising the profile of the University outside our immediate region, we’re sponsoring this Friday’s FA Cup second round tie between Macclesfield Town and Oxford United, which should be a great game.”
