Media Information

All requests for match-day accreditation at the Banks’s Stadium should be made via DataCo’s i-PBS system. Please submit all requests at least 48 hours in advance for Saturday fixtures and 24 hours in advance for midweek games.
If you cannot apply via i-PBS or miss the deadline, please email daniel.mole@walsallfc.co.uk from a company address with your DataCo licence number. This does not guarantee accreditation however.
All media requests must come from DataCo-accredited journalists.
The club will make the manager and one player available for interview post-match. The manager will first head to the broadcast room to be interviewed for iFollow and by local radio, before heading to the press conference room to speak to reporters.
No one-on-one interviews with players will be granted unless previously arranged. Please submit these requests to daniel.mole@walsallfc.co.uk at least three days in advance of the fixture.
Opposition press conferences are usually held pitchside in the dugout area, although this is at the discretion of that club’s press officer. Please contact the opposing club for more information.
Only members of the opposition media will be permitted to access the tunnel pre and post-match. Under no circumstances will members of the press be allowed in the tunnel area on matchday, before, during or after the game. The same rules apply to the pitch area and the suites post-match. 
If accreditation is granted, members of the press must make their way to the Media Entrance, which is open from 12pm on Saturdays and 5.45pm for midweek games. The Media Entrance is to the right of the club’s Ticket Office in the Main Stand.
Members of the press must display their DataCo cards and sign in on the sheet provided and collect passes. 
Tea and coffee will be available to the press in the media working room, as will sandwiches.
Journalists and reporters will be designated a specific seat on their media pass. 
Please note that the media facilities, including the Green Zone Car Park, will close 90 minutes after the final whistle.
No filming is permitted from the press area, as outlined in DataCo’s regulations. 

All requests to interview the manager, players or club staff must be requested in advance. Under no circumstances should players be approached without permission from the club. Contact daniel.mole@walsallfc.co.uk 

The club typically holds weekly press conferences each Thursday at the training ground. Invitations to each press conference are sent out to our press distribution list in advance with details including address, interviewees attending and any further required information.

To be added to the club’s media distribution list and receive the latest press releases, press conference calls and information, please email daniel.mole@walsallfc.co.uk with your request.
