Two of Albion's official supporters' groups have been nominated for gongs at the Fans for Diversity Awards.

Apna Albion and Proud Baggies will both be vying for awards at the Football Supporters' Association (FSA) Fans for Diversity annual conference on Friday, September 20. 

Translated as 'Our Albion', Apna Albion was established in April 2017 and aims to engage members of the local  community with West Bromwich Albion.

Proud Baggies was officially launched in September 2017 with the view to bring the football and LGBT+ family together.

This is the second time that both groups have been nominated for the title after their 2018 shortlisting. 

It's further positive news for our supporters groups as they continue to support Albion in engaging with fans in our local community.

The duo will be joined by Birmingham City's 'Blues 4 All' and 'Villans Together' of Aston Villa.

The winner from the quartet will represent their respective club at the overall Fans for Diversity Award at the FSA awards in December.

Best of luck to both of our groups!
