Official club coach information TBC
Away fans are able to enter the fan zone at the Hawthorns upon production of a match ticket. The area on Halfords Lane will usually show any early kick off live on big screens and offer food from a pop-up Greggs unit and alcohol. The bar inside the fan zone stops serving around half an hour after kick off.
The Vine (152 Roebuck Street, West Bromwich B70 6RD) is the usual designated away pub, about 25 minutes walk from the ground. As well as being a terrific football pub it shows delicious Indian food and often runs a tandoori barbecue on matchdays.
The Park Inn Hotel – located just off Junction 5 of the M1 and ten minutes walk from the ground – is a traditional meeting point for fans going to the Hawthorns but enthusiastically welcomes away supporters. It has a friendly, family feel on a matchday and car parking is available for £5.
The Royal Oak (14 Newton Street, West Bromwich B71 3RQ) has a history of welcoming visiting fans despite being adorned with loads of fascinating WBA memorabilia. They show live sport on their televisions, offer reasonably-priced beer and another outstanding Indian menu.
Real ale fans would be encouraged to stop off at the Jewellery Quarter Station on their way from Snow Hill and sample the delights of The Rose Villa Tavern (172 Warstone Lane, Birmingham, B18 6JW), The Red Lion (95 Warstone Lane, Birmingham, B18 6NG) and The Clifden (34 Great Hampton Street, Birmingham, B18 6AA), which all feature in the latest CAMRA Good Beer Guide.
Alcohol is otherwise available at the ground, including Heineken (£4.50), John Smith’s (£4.50), and Bulmers Cider (£4.50), plus Red and White wine (£4.20).
