Essential Guide for supporters attending Colchester match

13 September 2022

Walsall are back in action this evening as Colchester United visit the Poundland Bescot Stadium in Sky Bet League Two.

Kick-off is at 7.45pm this evening.

Here is a useful guide for supporters attending the Poundland Bescot Stadium for this fixture.



Walsall Football Club shares the sorrow of the nation following the passing of Her late Majesty, Queen Elizabeth.  

Our thoughts and condolences are with the Royal Family.

We will be paying our respects with a minute’s silence before tonight’s match and the players will wear black armbands.



Tickets for the game are still available to purchase.

The Ticket Office will be open right up until kick-off.

We would like to remind supporters that Under-12s can watch all home league games for free by joining Swifty's Squad and attending each match with a full-paying adult or senior citizen.

Click here for more information on ticket prices.

Please arrive as early as possible as we expect it to be busy.

Want to beat the queues? We have now introduced the option for supporters to scan a QR code to purchase tickets. Posters will be dotted around the ground; simply scan the code and you will be taken directly to our e-ticketing site.

Supporters are reminded to please sit in the seat you are allocated.

You can still purchase tickets for the game online here.



The Club Shop at the Poundland Bescot Stadium is open right up until kick-off.

Please allow yourself plenty of time to be able to browse around the shop.

In this area at tonights’s game, supporters will find:

- A pop up bar

We are pleased to confirm there will also be a concession unit in the Poundland Stand.



The Junior Fan Zone in the Experienced Energy Solutions Community Stand will be open from 6.15pm this evening.



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.

The Stadium Suite will be open from 6pm to all home supporters.

It will also be open during the half-time interval but will close at the end of the half-time break and will not be open after the game.

This will be the case for the entirety of the 2022/23 season.

We expect the suite to be busy before the match. It is licensed to a certain capacity and should we reach that capacity, we will be unable to accommodate further supporters so please be aware entry to the Stadium Suite is on a first come first serve basis.



The Mick Kearns Community Hub, situated in the lower tier, will be open before the game and at half time to supporters in the lower tier.

It will also be open after the game to ALL home supporters.



Colchester supporters in the traditional away end behind the goal will have access to the away bar in the concourse.



We would like to inform supporters that all cash cards will expire on 1st January 2023.

The cash cards were introduced at the start of the 2021/22 season to aid the transition from cash to cashless.

The expiry of cash cards will bring us in line with other cashless venues and make us a fully cashless stadium.

Please ensure all remaining credit is used by this date.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.



The latest edition of our programme – Saddlers Shout will be available around the ground, at the Ticket Office and at the Club Shop.

Tonight's programme includes an exclusive interview with Brandon Comley and Joss Labadie picks his dream five-a-side team of players he has played with.

Pick up a copy for just £3!

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