Football might just be a game at the end of the day, but a club is so much more than an organisation that employes players and coaches to provide entertainment to the masses.
What makes YOU proud to be a Baggie? 💙

Football clubs are a community and the glue that can hold a local area together, bring people from all walks of life under one unified banner and West Brom are no exception, with the Baggies one of the best-supported teams in the Championship.
And the latest post from the Baggies’ official Twitter account shows just how important a team is for people.
West Brom put the question to supporters to ask what makes them proud to support the club, and plenty of fans came out to explain what the team had meant for them in their lives and how much they love following the Albion no matter how bleak some situations might be.
Here’s what tons of West Brom fans had to say on Twitter about the post…
The way you have looked after my family. Forever grateful. ❤️ pic.twitter.com/wjH8FAF7hW

The way we look after our own. It’s like an extended family. We may not always agree, but the one thing we do have in common is our team. It isn’t just a sport, it’s a lifestyle choice. How inclusive we are is a credit to the whole fanbase.
