Jonno’s back for a derby debut - in the Fanzone

Popular former midfielder checks in for the Villa clash

WELCOME back Jonno!

Popular former midfielder Andy Johnson will be making his debut in the Fanzone, sponsored by “”, before the Aston Villa Barclays Premier League clash.

Jonno will be on stage to share his thoughts about the derby that promises to attract a capacity Hawthorns crowd – just a few hundred tickets now remain - as the two old rivals go head to head once more.

The double-promotion winner and veteran of Albion’s early Premier League years, Jonno is guaranteed a warm welcome which should also be reserved for our live band The Beat Brothers.

This Birmingham-based four-piece have built up quite a reputation as a party band and will play their role in helping provide the liveliest and most vibrant build-up to the main action.

We’ve also got another live game on the big screen, with the Norwich-Liverpool lunchtime match being shown, and the kids can try their hand at inflatable shoot-out and darts.

All the usual drink and food outlets will be open although the on-site Greggs store will be closing a little earlier for this game at 4pm. It will NOT be open after the match.

Everything gets underway at midday and, as usual, entrance will be on production of a match ticket. 

The Fanzone will not be open, however, to visiting supporters.
