SEASON tickets for Albion's WSL games next season will see record attendances as sales have increased by 249 per cent since last year.

The surge has come after England Women's Euros final victory over Germany on Sunday, which was decided by Chloe Kelly's extra-time winner for the Lionesses.

Albion women's head coach Hope Powell tolf the club website: “Sunday's win against Germany has come at the perfect time for women’s football in this country, as it continues to grow exponentially every season.

“What the Lionesses did was inspirational for all genders and ages, but what is so exciting is to know that there were so many young girls watching and they will have never had more motivation to go out and play the game.

“A part of that is coming to watch their team play at the weekend, so it’s great that at every home game we’ll have more season ticket holders than ever before.

“They make a huge difference to our performances on the pitch and we can’t wait to see them all very soon, when we start the new season at the Amex against Aston Villa.”

The game against the Villans will take place on September 11 and the next home fixture after that will be the game against Reading on September 25, both of which will be played at the Amex Stadium.
