West Brom’s Championship match against Bristol City delayed by 15 minutes due to medical emergency | Football News

West Brom’s Championship game against Bristol City was delayed by 15 minutes after a medical emergency involving a fan.

A club statement on Twitter announced: “Owing to a medical emergency involving a fan inside the stadium, kick-off has been delayed by 15 minutes. Our thoughts and prayers are with the supporter. We’re all with you.”

The spectator was carried away on a stretcher but was conscious and gave a thumbs-up gesture to the crowd on the way out.

It comes less than a week after a similar situation involving a Newcastle supporter during their 3-2 home Premier League defeat to Tottenham last Sunday.

The match kicked off according to the revised schedule at 3.15pm, with no further issues in the meantime.
