Albion players celebrate our late victory over Liverpool in The FA Cup.

The countdown to kick-off begins here! Take a look at everything happening around The Amex this matchday.


Sitting in the North stand?

We ask you to get to your seat 15-minutes before kick-off this Sunday. You'll find a piece of card on your seat to hold up and create an impressive Albion display for roughly 2-minutes as the players begin to walk out of the tunnel.

Note: the away end will also create their own display, so don’t let them take over The Amex!



DISCOBUG will be in the fanzone spinning some pre-match tunes to get us ready for the big game.

Get your matchday selfie in the photobooth located in the East Lower Stand.

The fun doesn’t stop there as Gully is taking on the Mighty Mariner in a half-time relay race, with the help of some lucky fans!
