Baggies fans will get the inside scoop on exclusive sign up deals with leading online bookmakers plus we'll be giving away match tickets and club merchandise in competitions throughout the season.
Managerial changes were once again a feature at WBA last season as Tony Pulis was brought in to replace the departed Alan Irvine following a troubled start to the Premier League campaign. Thankfully after Christmas results improved and the club pulled clear of the relegation zone to finish an eventual 13th and will remain in the top-flight for a sixth consecutive season.
This will be the first full season in charge for Tony Pulis and West Bromwich Albion are expected to be a much tougher side to beat, though the threat of relegation is never far away despite online bookmakers not placing the Baggies among the favourites for the drop. A top 10 finish would be seen as success and the current odds suggest that finishing in the top-half is certainly achievable, with European qualification perhaps a bridge too far. Confidence is key though, and if they can put a run of results together, then WBA may just surprise a few people this season.
Last season West Bromwich Albion were knocked out of the League Cup in the fourth round, losing away to Bournemouth and the club exited the FA Cup in the sixth round, after they were beaten by local rivals Aston Villa. Fans will be hoping for an extended run in both cup competitions this year and can back the Baggies at huge odds to go all the way in 2015/16.
West Bromwich Albion's season begins with the visits of both Manchester City and Chelsea inside the first three games and the first derby match with Aston Villa will take place on September 19 at Villa Park. There are trips to Old Trafford and Anfield before Christmas, though the festive fixtures themselves don't look too demanding on paper and WBA play away to Chelsea shortly after the New year. Aston Villa visit the Hawthorns on January 23 and games against Manchester United(H), Arsenal(A) and Manchester City(A) all take place inside the final 10 fixtures, which concludes with the visit of Liverpool on the last day of the season.

Keeping hold of Saido Berahino was seen as an absoulte must for West Bromwich Albion if they were to kick on this season and Tony Pulis added Saloman Rondon to his squad to ease the goal-scoring burdon on the England Under-21 international.
Only time will tell if this latest group of players can improve the fortunes of West Bromwich Albion, but there are sure to be plenty of twists and turns over the coming months. There are no easy games in the Premier League, but Tony Pulis has already put his stamp on the squad in terms of tactics and the outlook is much brighter than just a few months ago.
