Hope Powell says it is a privilege for her side to play at the Amex on Sunday.

Powell’s side take on Birmingham in the Barclays FA WSL as part of the women’s football weekend.

The FA say the weekend will become an annual attraction and seek to capitalise on the growing popularity of the women’s game.

Powell thinks it will be a great occasion for her side.

She said: “It is great for the girls that we get the opportunities to play here again.

“It is a nice experience, a great stadium so we feel very privileged and humbled.

“It would be really great if we had a really good turnout from supporters, so they can lift us and we can try to emulate the performance we had against Arsenal.”

The club themselves have been doing their bit to get as many spectators as possible at the Amex.

They are offering Albion season ticket holders at the Amex two free tickets for the match and reducing ticket prices to just £3 for adults and £1 for over-65s and under-18’s and Powell has praised their efforts.

She said: “It is an ambition of the club to increase the fanbase for the women’s game, exceed all the expectations, make this club worthy of the fans coming and watching the game.

“It is a really good effort by everybody and a real privilege for us to play here.”

Powell also has her own message for supporters who are unsure whether to come to the game.

She said: “I think it is really important we get the spectators in to really boost the girls that would be really helpful.

“I am urging everybody to come along and support them.

“Then the girls really have to showcase themselves, put their best foot forward and try to win the game.”

Going into the game Albion sit 11th place in the WSL having only picked up two points so far this season.

Birmingham sit 9th a point and two places better off than Albion and Powell thinks that the occasion could inspire the visitors.

She said: “Absolutely and why wouldn’t it, it is a great stadium.

“I think the fact the club are doing this so we can play a game here is fantastic.

“We will enjoy it and they’ll enjoy it and let’s hope for a good game.”

For a number of Albion’s side it will be their first experience of playing at the Amex and Powell says it will be a special occasion.

She said: “It will be special if they have never played here before.

“I think the nice thing is that we are not the only club doing it, we have played Bristol at Ashton Gate at the start of the season, so that feel of the stadium should not be too nerve-racking hopefully.

“But it is the expectation around the game, they have to enjoy it as it is just another bit of grass to be fair.

“It is a grass pitch, two goals, 22 players so let’s focus on that rather than getting over-ruled by the stadium, the Amex which is fantastic, but it is about the football on it.”
