Wolves' Europa League campaign means that the side will be heavily affected by footballing restart plans as English football gears up for a return.
Nuno's team will return in June with all 20 Premier League sides ready to restart the league in the middle of the month.
With phase two of Project Restart being agreed, players will now move ahead with contact training ahead of a June 17th return to fixtures.
Wolves will not take part in the very first fixtures, but should return to their campaign on the weekend of the 9th-21st of June.
The reason for this is because Carabao Cup finalists Aston Villa and Manchester City will be playing out their game in hand on the 17th, with Villa taking on Sheffield United and City facing Arsenal.
The decision to go ahead with fixtures has been agreed in principle - with talks still ongoing.
The English season will be set to end on August the 1st, with the FA Cup Final following the close of the top tier just a week later.
The 2020/2021 season will then start in September, with a six-week refresh inbetween the close of the English season and the starting of the next.
However, Wolves might not enjoy much of a break if they are to succeed in the Europa League.

Swedish starlet Armin Gigovic says reports linking him with a move to Wolverhampton Wanderers are 'fun to hear'.
The 18-year-old midfielder is one of Sweden's brightest young talents and he's already broken into the first team of Helsingborgs IF.
Gigovic has already made 14 appearances for Helsingborgs, where he is managed by former Aston Villa and Juventus defender Olof Mellberg.
Mellberg, who spent seven years of his career in the Premier League, gave Gigovic his first team chance last year and the playmaker has taken it.
As a result of his exploits with Helsingborgs a host of clubs have been linked with moves for Gigovic, including Wolves.
Gigovic is also reportedly on the radar of CSKA Moscow and French club Amiens after his breakthrough year in Sweden.
And the midfielder, speaking to Fotboll Direkt, admits he's flattered by the attention he's receiving.
“Sure, it’s fun to hear,” Gigovic said. “This means you know they have their eyes on one. So it’s important to keep working hard.
Gonzalo Higuain, the Juventus forward with an uncertain future, could cost Wolves as much as £16.5m in the next transfer widnow.
Former Real Madrid attacker is likely to leave Turin in the coming months, and Wolves and Premier League rivals Newcastle United have both been credited with an interest.
Higuain returned to Juventus last summer after an unsuccessful loan stint at Stamford Bridge having scored just five Premier League goals.
Juve reportedly want to offload him in the next transfer window with the ex-Argentina international, 32, struggling back in Serie A under Maurizio Sarri.
And they could looking for as much as £16.5m from any suitors, according to reports in Italy, - and that list of suitors includes the player’s former club River Plate.
Patrick Cutrone enjoyed his time at Wolverhampton Wanderers - but he’s admitted that the opportunity to return to his native Italy with Fiorentina in the January transfer window was too good to turn down.
Young Italian forward Cutrone was signed for around £16m from Serie A giants AC Milan last summer, but he managed to find the net just three times in the first half of the campaign while playing second fiddle to first choice forward Raul Jimenez.
Cutrone was offered a route back to Serie A in the winter, when Fiorentina came calling and put an offer to Wolves that involved taking the striker on loan from 18 months.
That would suggest that things didn’t go well for Cutrone in England, but the forward - who has contracted and since recovered from coronavirus - offered a very different view.
He very much enjoyed his experience in England, but Fiorentina was a venture he felt compelled to explore.
“A great experience, I discovered a new culture and the Premier has always thrilled me,” he told his fans on Instagram Live, via Sport Witness.
