West Bromwich Albion Potted History

West Bromwich Albion Football Club, also known as West Brom, The Baggies, The Throstles, Albion or simply WBA, is an English professional football club based in West Bromwich in the West Midlands. The club was formed in 1878 and has played at its home ground, The Hawthorns, since 1900.

Founded as West Bromwich Strollers in 1878 by workers from George Salter's Spring Works in West Bromwich. They were renamed West Bromwich Albion in 1880, becoming the first team to adopt the Albion suffix.

Albion were one of the founding members of the Football League in 1888 and have spent the majority of their existence in the top tier of English football. They have been champions of England once, in 1919–20 and have been runners-up twice but they have had more success in the FA Cup, winning it five times. The first came in 1888, the year the league was founded, and the most recent in 1968, their last major trophy. They have also won the Football League Cup at the first attempt in 1966. The club's longest consecutive period in the top division was between 1949 and 1973, and from 1986 to 2002 they spent their longest ever spell out of the top division. The 2015–16 season is now their tenth season in the top flight since 2002.

The team has played in blue and white stripes for most of the club's history. Albion have a number of long-standing rivalries with other West Midlands clubs; their traditional rivals have always been Aston Villa, though rivalry also exists with Wolverhampton Wanderers, with whom they contest the Black Country Derby.
