Our Proud Baggies team are in training ahead of the Birmingham Black Country Half Marathon on Saturday 7th November 2020.
The run starts in Wolverhampton City Centre & finishes in Brindley Place, Birmingham.
We’ll be fundraising for The Albion Foundation. See below to donate to this worthy cause.
It's been another busy season at Proud Baggies and you can relive the highlights in our latest Season Review available now to download.

Learn more about Albion’s LGBTQ+ supporters' club, Proud Baggies, by watching a two-part documentary discussion about LGBTQ+ inclusion, hosted by BBC Radio 2’s Richie Anderson.
The two-part video was created following a series of Zoom calls hosted by Richie Anderson, a patron of Proud Baggies, in which he spoke to founders and members of the supporters’ club, along with Albion’s Operations Director, Mark Miles.
During Football v Homophobia month of action this February, Proud Baggies were at The Hawthorns delivering their LGBTQ+ Awareness training to 60 Albion Foundation coaches and staff. The session was part of the LGBTQ+ 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 LGBTQ+ 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.
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.
