Essential guide for supporters attending the Aston Villa friendly

8 July 2022

The Saddlers are back at the Poundland Bescot Stadium for their first pre-season fixture in front of supporters on Saturday as we host Premier League side Aston Villa.

Here is a useful guide for supporters attending tomorrow’s game.

 

TICKETS

Tickets for Saturday’s game are still available to supporters with a previous booking history only.

Saddlers fans with previous booking history will be able to purchase tickets on the day but these are subject to availability due to over 9,000 tickets already being sold for the game.

Aston Villa supporters have sold out of their allocation and NO away tickets will be available on the day.

If you are an Aston Villa supporter and you don’t have a ticket for the game, please do not travel to the Poundland Bescot Stadium.

The Ticket Office will be open from 10am right up until kick-off, which is 1pm.

We would like to advise supporters to arrive as early as possible as we expect it to be extremely busy at the stadium and in the surrounding areas.

You can still purchase tickets for the game online here.

 

DJ AND STALLS

Head down to the undercroft between the Poundland Stand and the Tile Choice Main Stand where we will have a DJ as well as a bar, stalls selling sweets, doughnuts and the usual concession unit.

 

CLUB SHOP

The Club Shop will be open from 10am until kick-off and then up until 3:15pm after the game has finished.

Saddlers fans will be able to get their hands on one of the brand new home, away and third shirts, alongside the brand new training wear range which is also available in-store.

Please note that if you are planning to head into the Club Shop, please allow yourself enough time as we are also expecting this to be busier than usual.

 

TEXT SERVICE

Last season we launched a text service for supporters who can anonymously report any incidents they see inside or outside the stadium.

Discrimination of any kind will not be tolerated at the Poundland Bescot Stadium.

If you see or hear any forms of discriminative behaviour, please text 07585 858 030 with details of the incident and location in the stadium to report it.

The Community Hub will be open before the game, at half-time and after full-time to supporters in the Lower Tier.

 

CONCESSION UNITS

We will have concession units available in the undercroft between the Poundland Stand and the Tile Choice Main Stand, outside the Experienced Energy Solutions Stand and the University of Wolverhampton Away Stand.

 

KIOSKS

All kiosks will be in operation for the game against Aston Villa. Supporters situated in the Poundland Lower Tier will have access to the Community Hub as well as kiosks 3 & 4 once they have entered the stadium. 

 

AWAY BARS

Aston Villa supporters in the traditional away end behind the goal will have access to the away bar in the concourse, as well as access to a concession unit and bar outside the stand.

For Aston Villa supporters in the Experienced Energy Solutions Stand, there will also be a concession unit and bar situated outside the stand.

 

GIFT CARDS

Home supporters who currently have money on a gift card that can be used inside the stadium are reminded to check their remaining balance as well as the expiry date on the card.

If your card is due to expire, please visit the Ticket Office to get a new card.

 

PROGRAMMES

Programmes will be on sale around the stadium, in the Club Shop and in the Ticket Office for just £2.

 

We would like to remind all supporters that the Poundland Bescot Stadium is a cashless venue.
