Join us to get involved or show your support...
Officially launched in September 2017 at West Bromwich Albion's inaugral Diversity Day, our Proud Baggies' Members regularly meet for home and away matches, socials, club events, campaigning and fundraising.
We want to bring the Football and LGBT+ community together to celebrate diversity and increase LGBT+ visibility at West Bromwich Albion FC, making our club a safe, welcoming and inclusive environment for all.
During Football v Homophobia month of action this February, Proud Baggies were at The Hawthorns delivering their LGBT+ Awareness training to 60 Albion Foundation coaches and staff. The session was part of the LGBT+ Diversity & Inclusion Development Programme being rolled out across WBA by Proud Baggies.
Teams from all communities and of any ability are welcome to join us to celebrate diversity in football and raise awareness of LGBT+ inclusion in sport.
Proud Baggies are delighted to have become Patrons of the Albion Foundation. The Albion Foundation is committed to working with organisations that share the same values as the charity and West Bromwich Albion Football Club, where there are common synergies that can support our mission to make a positive difference within the local community.
Friday 7th February. We are delighted to announce that Proud Baggies were awarded Best Supporter Group at the inaugural Football v Homophobia awards held at Altrincham FC. The prestigious awards celebrate the LGBT+ community across all forms of the game. Proud Baggies saw off stiff competition from fellow nominees Marching Out Together (Leeds) and Proud Lilywhites (Spurs).
Proud Baggies are delighted to have been nominated for a Football v Homophobia award and you can join us on the night of 7th February for the ceremony which takes place at Altrincham Football Club. We look forward to seeing you there!
WBA's match vs Swansea will be the annual Rainbow Laces game where the club will show its support for Stonewall's inclusivity in sport campaign. Central to the activities is the unveiling of our Fan Mosaic which will be shown in the stadium before kick off.
As a voluntary organisation we rely entirely on grants and donations. We are therefore very grateful for any contributions to help us continue our work.
