Albion v Villa supporters’ guide

13 May 2019

Here’s everything you need to know if you’re attending Tuesday’s Play-Off semi-final against Aston Villa (ko 8pm).

It’s going to be a pulsating night at The Hawthorns and here’s all you need to know about the occasion.

Tickets

The Hawthorns is a complete sell-out. Thank you, as ever, for your superb support.

Travel

Supporters are advised, with the game now a complete sell-out, to leave for The Hawthorns in good time. Heavy traffic is expected around the stadium on Tuesday evening.

Please note supporters will not be able to access the area directly behind the Smethwick End’s away section, before, during and after the game.

The walkway to the rear of A Block, including the Middlemore Road ramp, can be used only by Aston Villa fans in possession of a match ticket. 

Baggies fans who normally use this route to access and exit the stadium are asked to make alternative arrangements.

Timetable

Here’s a round-up of the key times you need to be aware of for the match. Turnstiles open at 6.30pm for those who wish to take their seats early. Please note that the FanZone will not be open for this game.

Fans will find flags on every seat to ensure the Baggies enter the stadium to a sea of blue and white.

And radio broadcaster and Baggies fan Richie Anderson is back on the mic to help whip up the atmosphere.
