Teams

The Albion Foundation currently heads up 22 West Bromwich Albion teams, comprising of around 160 players.

The teams offer a mixture of elite and recreational football across both national and regional leagues.

The powerchair programme has three National League teams, with some of those players also playing in their five regional teams.

Their national powerchair teams offer a route into the international setup, with many players representing England over the last few years.

The regional setup allows for real life opportunities for many development players and provides the opportunity for them to learn from The Foundation's international players.

Their blind team and newly formed amputee teams will both be playing monthly in their respective national leagues during the 2017/18 season.

The blind team has experienced great success in the league and cup over the last few years and once again offers a successful pathway into the international arena - something they look to replicate in the near future.

The charity's vast PAN Disability Programme allows males and females of all ages the opportunity to play for WBA in the Sandwell Inclusion League and in various festivals, including Wellbeing and Recovery.

This particular route offers a fantastic legacy for the young people they meet through our schools programmes, where they make friends for life as well as being encouraged to maintain a healthy lifestyle through sport.
