Albion confirm two pre-season friendlies against EFL opposition

Burton Albion's Pirelli Stadium

Albion are set to travel to both Salford City and Burton Albion in July ahead of the start of the 2023/24 Sky Bet Championship campaign. 

Carlos Corberán’s men will face League Two outfit Salford at the Peninsula Stadium on Wednesday, July 19 (ko 7.45pm) before coming up against the Brewers of League One on Saturday, July 22 (ko 3pm) at the Pirelli Stadium. 

Salford, the side the Baggies signed striker Brandon Thomas-Asante from last summer, finished seventh in the fourth tier last term, missing out on a spot in the play-off final after suffering a semi-final shoot-out defeat to local rivals Stockport County. 

Burton came 15th in League One in 2022/23, with Albion defender Zac Ashworth featuring 18 times for Dino Maamria’s men in a loan spell between January and May. 

Ticket details for both pre-season friendlies will be announced at the earliest possible opportunity.
