West Bromwich Albion F.C. was founded in 1878 (as the West Bromwich Strollers) and are affectionaltly known as the "Baggies" due to the fact that their fans wore baggy trousers. Other sources says that it was because the players wore baggy shorts or that the rooters were called "bagmen". West Bromwich has won the Premier League Championship once (1919-1920 season) and the Second League Championship back in 2007-2008 season. The "friendlies" are part of the Albions' 11 day traning trip to the United States that will take place Thursday, July 17 through Sunday, July 27.

This is the third of four scheduled "friendlies" between the Sacramento Republic F.C. and other association football clubs from around the globe. Sacramento will play Club Atlas F.C. on July 6 and the Scottish Rangers F.C. July 19. The Republic F.C. will play their next home game on Thursday, June 26 against the Arizonia United S.C.
