Fanzone opens from midday ahead of Sunderland clash
LIVE football...live music...games for the kids...the matchday debut of a new High Street bakery...and yes, we hear you – more outlets for a pint before kick-off.
Albion’s new Fanzone is ready for its third outing before this Saturday's match against Sunderland and we hope Baggies fans will again enjoy the best way to count down to kick-off.
The site gets a new addition for the clash against the Black Cats as it will be the first time the historic old Hawthorns pub’s leaseholders, Greggs, will be open on a matchday.
We have arranged for a variety of other food outlets to supplement what they will have to offer and with entertainment laid on as well, it really is fast becoming the place for Albion fans – and indeed visiting supporters – to meet up before the game.
It will be open from 12noon on Saturday and the big screen TV will be ready to beam into the Fanzone the Spurs v Liverpool Barclays Premier League clash beginning at 12.45pm.
Warming us up while we wait are our live band 'Second City Soul' – they do what it says on the tin, folks – who will be back for a second set featuring some memorable tunes in the last hour before the Hawthorns kick-off.
With safe soft play areas for those junior Baggies, the Fanzone is the place to meet and enjoy the pre-match atmosphere.
And don’t leave too soon.
We’ve got a little surprise in store just before we head into the stadium which you won’t want to miss…
