Supporters Guide: Coventry City

19 July 2022

The Saddlers are back at the Poundland Bescot Stadium for their penultimate pre-season fixture this evening as we host Championship side Coventry City, kick off 7.30pm.

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

WEATHER

Tonight’s pre-season friendly against Coventry City will go ahead as planned.

With the extreme weather conditions in mind, the safety and welfare of our players, staff and supporters is paramount.

The two clubs have been in constant dialogue and there will be a number of drinks breaks throughout the fixture.

To ensure that everyone attending the fixture remains safe and hydrated we can confirm the following:

  • There will be a free water filling station for those supporters in the Tile Choice Stand, situated at gate three
  • There will be a free water filling station for those supports in the Poundland Stand lower tier, situated at gate eight
  • Coventry City supporters can visit the away bar for free water upon request
  • Stewards will be on hand distributing water throughout the game for those who need it

We advise supporters to stay hydrated, apply sun cream regularly and contact the nearest steward or first aider if they are feeling unwell.

Tickets for tonight’s game are still available for purchase.

Please note that only the Poundland Lower Tier and Tile Choice Main Stand are open for home supporters this evening.
