Baggies fans are encouraged to head to The Hawthorns on Thursday night for the first ever meeting between Albion Women and Wolves Women in B71 (ko 7.45pm).

The historic clash between the two rivals will act as one half of the club’s dedicated International Women’s Day and Her Game Too fixtures, with the other taking place last week when Carlos Corberán’s side beat Wigan Athletic 1-0 in the Sky Bet Championship.

International Women’s Day is held on March 8 each year and celebrates the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of ladies. 

Her Game Too is an organisation consisting of female supporters who are passionate about football and working to eradicate sexism in the industry, in the hope that women and girls of all ages feel confident and safe sharing their opinions both online and in real life without fear of sexist abuse. Albion announced a partnership with them in March 2022.

Supporters can secure their seat for the Black Country derby - and April's other Hawthorns fixture against Burnley - here. Tickets are priced £10 Adults and just £1 Under-18s, and include access to both matches.

Baggies fans can also buy tickets from the East Stand Ticket Office up until kick-off. 

Leigh Dugmore, who netted Albion Women’s maiden Hawthorns goal against Derby County in March 2021, will be a guest of honour for the match.

Albion Women Head Coach Jenny Sugarman says she’s excited to see how her players “respond to the occasion”. 

Sugarman said: “I think it's going to be a really interesting moment for us to see the character of the group and how they respond to the occasion. 

“They dealt with the pressure of the first-ever game at The Hawthorns brilliantly. 

“We’re closing the gap to Wolves and it might be that it needs an occasion like Thursday night to get that first positive result against them."

Come on you Baggies!
