Welcome to a new series of posts designed to brighten up your Mondays! First off, we’re heading to West Brom to meet Boilerman, the hot water hero we didn’t know we needed. As aficionados of bonkers football mascots (and there are many out there), we here at ASRV absolutely love Boilerman – although we’re still trying to work out how he actually sees anything at all out of that suit…
Club: West Bromwich Albion
Mascot since: 2018
Species: Er… a combi boiler. On legs. Wearing a cap.
Friends & Family: Baggie Bird (see photo below)
Notes: A promotional mascot for WBA sponsors Ideal Boilers, Boilerman was introduced to the fans at the Hawthorns in August 2018. He was an instant social media hit, discussed on both local and national news websites – and has even released his own clothing line (a first for a football mascot?).
If you’ve got any suggestions for future Mascot Mondays, let us know!
