The Albion Foundation excited to engage new supporters with Premier League Fans Fund grant
The grant will help the Foundation to support the Apna (Our) Albion Supporters Group, which is working to link the local Asian-Indian and Sikh communities with West Bromwich Albion FC.

The Albion Foundation has been awarded a grant of £17,500 from the Premier League Fans Fund, which will enable the development of a number of different club supporter groups, most notably the Apna (Our) Albion Supporters Group. 

The grant will support the Foundation’s aims to inspire new fans to take part and engage in local community activities and events, and working with the Apna Albion Supporters Group, will look to further link local Asian-Indian and Sikh communities with West Bromwich Albion FC. Community outreach workshops and multi-cultural themed events during match days are just some of the ways that The Albion Foundation will provide opportunities for supporters to get involved in club activity. 

There are also plans to appoint a volunteer co-ordinator within the Apna Albion Supporters Group, to help develop the range of activities already on offer. They will work with the club, the Albion Foundation and a number of local schools and community groups to support the development of the group’s activities. 

Gurdial Singh, Engagement Officer at The Albion Foundation, said: “The Fans Fund gives us at The Foundation a genuine opportunity to improve the relationship between the fans and their club by listening and responding to community needs.”

The Premier League Fans Fund is a commitment from the Premier League to fund projects and organisations which improve the relationship between fans and their clubs, the way football supporters engage with each other and fans’ experience of the game.
