The Hawthorns through the goal net

Come and join the Easter excitement at The Hawthorns by watching our men’s first team train this Tuesday (April 4).

Supporters can enjoy a behind-the-scenes look at a session led by Carlos Corberán and his coaching staff as the players get set for their trip to Rotherham United on Friday, April 7 (ko 1pm).

A range of engaging activities will also be on offer, including music, face painting, console gaming, exciting competitions and much, much more. 

Fancy getting kitted out for the big day? The Stadium Megastore will be open from 9am, with turnstiles then opening up at 10.30am. Food and drink will be served for the duration. 

Please note this will be a ticketed event, but admission is free. Tickets will be distributed on a first come, first served basis, so online booking is advised.

Any remaining tickets will be made available from the East Stand Ticket Office on the day.


Plans for the day

There will be a whole host of free activities to keep supporters entertained at The Hawthorns.

Located by gates 15–17, there will be a gaming van - where you can enjoy playing FIFA 23.

In the middle of the concourse, fans will find three exciting interactive games, including the dartboard challenge, the speed gun challenge, and the bache board shooting challenge.

The club are pleased to announce that the event will be hosted by Heart FM’s Ed James.

And there will be plenty of opportunities for crowd participation throughout the day. Prior to training starting, there will be a 'crowd warm-up' hosted by the Albion Foundation. When training finishes, the team will also attempt to take part in a giant selfie with the crowd!

As mentioned, a face painter will be on site to help you look the part.

While activities will be located in the concourse, in the build-up to training there will be a variety of different acts pitchside, including a freestyler and a magician.

Baggie Bird and Boiler Man will be in attendance, so there will be plenty of opportunities to get selfies with Albion's friendly mascots. Fans are encouraged to send their pictures in via Twitter, using the hashtag #AlbionFamily so these images can go on the big screens.

As it’s Easter, there will be lots of prizes on offer, including Easter eggs, FIFA 23, Football Manager, and much, much more.

The Stadium Megastore will be open from 9am, but a pop-up store will be located in the concourse for anyone wanting to get kitted out. Keep your eyes peeled for an exclusive retail competition, too, for a chance to be the away mascot against Swansea City.

Finally, food and drink will be available to buy on the day. The family-friendly menu for the event includes chips, curry sauce, pizza, hot dogs, and sausage baps.

The G-block turnstiles will be open from 10:30am and seating for the event will be unreserved, so please ignore any seat numbers on your booking.


Supporters are able to park on the East Stand car park on a first-come, first-served basis. The Birmingham Road car park, next to Greggs, will then be open as an overflow.
