Wolves have been accused by the Football Association of failing to control supporters during a game disrupted by homophobic chants.
Three arrests were made for alleged homophobic chanting when Wolves beat Chelsea at Molineux last month.
Fans were told via the PA system during the match that “discriminatory behavior and chanting” was not tolerated.
Both clubs subsequently condemned the chants and Wolves now face a penalty.
The FA said Wolves breached FA rule E21 twice during the game.
Rule E21 states that a club must ensure that a club’s spectators and/or supporters conduct themselves in an orderly manner “and do not use words or behave in an inappropriate, offensive, abusive, indecent or insulting with express or implied reference to sexual orientation”.
The club has until Monday, May 15 to respond.
Chelsea players and supporters have been the target of homophobic chanting from opposing supporters.
Last year, the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) classified the chant as a homophobic slur and said fans singing it during matches were committing a hate crime.
The FA wrote to clubs in January saying it could take disciplinary action against clubs if fans engage in discriminatory behaviour, including homophobic chanting.
