ALBION will be backed by another big following at Hull on Saturday (ko 3pm).
The club are giving each supporter who buys a seat for the KC Stadium trip a voucher – £10 for adults and £5 for concessions – which can be used when buying tickets for future home games this season or at the club’s retail stores*.
The offer has proved popular, with more than 2,100 seats already snapped up. The club now have less than 400 tickets left from their allocation.
A sell-out 2,000-strong following also roared the team to a priceless victory at Swansea on Saturday after Albion subsidised ticket prices for travelling fans.
In addition, the club are providing free coach travel for around 2,000 supporters for the trip to Norwich on Saturday, April 5 (ko 3pm).
“Our support on Saturday was exceptional, both in terms of the numbers that travelled and the backing they gave the players,” said chief executive Mark Jenkins.
“We’re delighted with the response to our away match offers. The fact we’ll be backed by similar levels of support in our next two away games will be a big help to the players.”
Defender Craig Dawson added: “It was a great turnout at Swansea and getting another big following at Hull will be massive for us.
“The support they gave us in the second half was incredible so we need the same again on Saturday as we try to push us on.”
Tickets for the Hull trip are on general sale, priced:
Seniors (aged 65+)/young adults (aged 16-22) £18
Juniors (aged 11-15) £10
Tickets are available at www.wbatickets.co.uk, in person and by phone (0121 227 2227).
Albion have already sold around 1,500 tickets for the Norwich game from their 2,500 allocation. Seats are currently on sale to away season ticket holders and will be available to members at www.wbatickets.co.uk from tomorrow, priced:
Seniors (65+) £25
Tickets will be available to members in person and by phone from Monday and will go on general sale, subject to availability, on Wednesday, March 26.
Coach seats can be booked at www.wbatickets.co.uk, in person and by phone and will be available on a first-come, first-served basis – but only once a Norwich match ticket has been purchased.
On booking a coach seat, supporters will be required to pay a refundable deposit of £1, which will be returned on boarding the coach to the game. This is to discourage fans from booking a free coach seat and then failing to claim it, thus depriving other supporters of taking advantage of the offer.
* Supporters will receive their voucher at the same time as their match ticket, either in person at the ticket office or in the post for ticket purchases made online or over the phone. The vouchers can only be used to purchase match tickets for the home games against Cardiff, Tottenham and West Ham. The vouchers expire on May 31 and are only redeemable at the Stadium Megastore, Merry Hill Centre Club Store and Ticket Office in person. They cannot be used at www.wbashop.co.uk or www.wbatickets.co.uk.
