'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Away Days: WBA



The Hawthorns has been in action as the home of West Bromwich Albion for over 100 years, built in September 1900. As it stands it can be party to nearly 28,000 screaming fans and (for a Championship team ;) ) boasts the novelty of Stilecard access and widescreen telly!!!



By Road
Well from Leeds, work your way out to the M1 and travel South (duh!) Keep travelling south along the M1 (remember, tiredness costs, take a break!) until Junction 23A. This will lead you into a merge onto the A42 (Will be signposted the SW, Tamworth/Birmingham).

Junction 11 of the A42 then comes onto the M42, which will take you along to the M6 (North). Leave the M6 at Junction 8 which will take you nicely onto the M5 (remember, the UK speed limit is 70mph *ahem*).

Come off the M5 at Junction 1 (handy!) and take the first exit on the roundabout (don`t go over, it gets flippin messy!) onto the A41. The Hawthorns is situated along the A41 just under 1km. The ground is fairly obvious by about then. There are reports of local parking available. Through the club gates is room for 300 cars, there is further club parking in Halfords Lane.

Public Transport (Train)
If anyone particularly wants coach travel for these features I will give it however I think it`s far fetched when there is club travel available. The away ground guide will get you to within walking distance of the ground. Again this is up for change and I don`t mind looking up times if the demand is there.

Disclaimer Time!!!

CONFIRM DETAILS BEFORE YOU TRAVEL! Neither myself, nor the Vital Network will take responsibility for unforeseen travel issues. The information is taken from the National Rail Network Information.


The Hawthorns is a tricky one to get to but it`s not impossible. Essentially it`s Leeds-Birmingham-Ground. However this requires a change of Birmingham train stations (as they felt one wasn`t enough in Brum!)

You will need to pick up a Virgin Cross-Country service into Birmingham New Street. Then it`s a short (well sign-posted) walk to Birmingham Snow Hill station. From here you can choose National Rail or the Midland Metro to get to the Hawthorns station, which is nothing more than a very short walk away.

As I say, check times using the following sources!
