Autographs and selfies

All players will not stop to sign or pose for selfies when arriving or leaving the stadium – as it is no longer safe to do so.

Instead, we will be offering a number of spaces for our junior season-ticket holders and MyAlbion+ junior members at every home matchday to come to the stadium early for enhanced selfie and autograph opportunities with the squad, in a safe environment as the players arrive.

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