Albion FA Cup date confirmed

7 January 2015

It's a Saturday kick-off for the big West Midlands Cup derby

ALBION'S FA Cup fourth round tie with Birmingham City will take place on Saturday, January 24 (3pm kick-off).

The date was settled by the toss of a coin ordered by West Midlands police because Blues' nearest neighbours Aston Villa had been drawn to play AFC Bournemouth on the same day. 

Blues made the correct call, enabling the West Midlands Cup derby to take place in the traditional time slot.

Neither game has been chosen for live TV coverage.

Ticket details and allocation figures for the first FA Cup meeting between the two clubs since 1968 will be made available in due course.
