West Bromwich Albion Tickets
Details of West Bromwich Albion and the Ticket Luck value
The English Premier League, the foremost soccer league in the UK, is home to the best soccer teams in England. One such team is West Bromwich Albion, a club often known by the nicknames The Baggies. Albion or WBA, as most fans call the soccer club, plays at The Hawthorns, a twenty six thousand capacity stadium in West Bromwich. Since 1878, the club has been competing against the best sides in the UK and you can catch them live this season by simply getting West Bromwich Albion tickets.
West Bromwich Albion was one of the founding clubs of The Football League in 1888. The team has spent most of its life in English soccer's top tier or first division, a feat matched by few in the league. The team has won the FA Cup five times, as well as the League Cup. The team also has one league title to their name. The 2014 to 2015 season will mark the team's ninth season as a first division club since 2002. Albion's official colors are white and blue.
West Bromwich Albion has a number of rivalries with soccer clubs in the Premier League, mostly with those based in the West Midlands. Their traditional rivals are Aston Villa, and the club also has rivalries with the Wolverhampton Wanderers. With the latter, WBA often competes in the Black Country derby.
Following a string of disappointing results, the team's fortunes turned in 2000, when Gary Megson led them to Division One and then to the playoffs a year later. The club was then promoted to the Premier League but was relegated that season. They returned to the top flight next season again and in 2004-2005, Bryan Robson led the team to a historic Great Escape: the team became the first team in history to avoid relegation after being at the bottom of the table at Christmas.
In 2007, Albion made it to the semi-finals of the FA Cup, but lost against Portsmouth. A month after that, they won the Championship and were then promoted to the Premier League once again. Roberto Di Matteo became the club's new head coach, but was soon replaced by Roy Hodgson.
Hodgson led WBA to a tenth place finish during his first season, which was a spectacular achievement considering the club had just achieved promotion. Hodgson had to leave the club, though, after being asked to manage the England national soccer team.
In 2014, Alan Irvine became WBA's manager and he is set to see the club rise once again. The former League and FA Cup champions will want to regain lost glory, and this could very well be the season that they once again establish their mark on the Premier League.
