Albion will take on Birmingham City at the Amex in November

The match will be played during the FA’s Women’s Football Weekend, an initiative to encourage supporters to attend a women’s match during the international break for Premier League and EFL clubs.

Last season, the stadium played host to our final home WSL match of the 2018/19 campaign against Arsenal, where we set a then record attendance of 5,265, and the club are encouraging fans to come and support Hope Powell’s side.

With the bar raised even higher this season – seeing over 31,000 people in attendance at the Etihad Stadium for the Manchester derby on the opening day of the campaign, and nearly 25,000 fans at the London Stadium for the West Ham United match against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday – the appetite for women’s football is continuing to grow.

Albion manager Hope Powell said, “It is a great opportunity for the team to be able to showcase themselves at the Amex again this season. Now we have our first year in the league under our belts, and having played at the Amex back in April, we are at an exciting stage of our development and it would be fantastic to play in front of a big home crowd once again.”
