AWAY FAN GUIDE | Walsall

25 November 2016

Information for supporters going to Walsall...

What is the ground like?

The Saddlers moved to then called Bescot Stadium in 1990 from Fellows Park, which had been their home for 104 years.

The stadium received a boost in 2003 with the opening of a two-tiered stand at one end.

Away supporters are housed in the KIA Stand at the other end of the ground, where around 2,000 away supporters can be accommodated.

Capacity: 11,300 (all-seated)

Travelling to the ground by car…

Banks's Stadium is located right next to the M6.

Leave the M6 at Junction 7 and take the A34 towards Walsall.

At the end of the dual carriageway turn left at the Bell Inn public house into Walstead Road (sign posted Bescot Stadium, Bescot Station Park & Ride). Continue straight on this road for two miles, passing another pub called the Tiger on your left. You will come to Bescot Stadium and entrance to the away end on your right.
