The 2022-23 season has been consigned to history – but what a season it was for Albion as we achieved our best Premier League finish of sixth, reached the semi-finals of the FA Cup and qualified for the Europa League for the first time.
But there isn’t long to wait until 2023-24 gets underway. After competing in the Summer Series in the USA as part of our pre-season preparations, the Premier League campaign gets underway on August 12 when we take on Luton Town at the Amex.
