Supporters Guide: Walsall v Aston Villa

14 July 2023

Walsall will host Aston Villa tomorrow (1pm kick-off) as Mat Sadler's team continue their preparations for the 2023/24 season.

Here is a useful, detailed guide for supporters attending the match.


There are a limited number of tickets remaining for tomorrow’s game as we have already sold close to 9,000 tickets.

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

The Ticket Office will be open from 9am 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.

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



The supporters zone in the undercroft between the Tile Choice Main Stand and Poundland Stand will be open from 11am.

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

  • A concession unit
  • A bar


The Club Shop will be open from 10am right through until kick-off tomorrow.

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.



Please note, the Junior Fan Zone in the Experienced Energy Solutions stand will not be open due to Aston Villa supporters being housed in this area.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.



We have 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 during your visit, please text 07585 858 030 as soon as possible with details of the incident and location in the stadium so that it can be dealt with.

Please note that incidents that are reported after the game will be picked up during the normal office hours.


The Stadium Suite will be open from 10am to all home supporters.

It will also be open during the half time interval and for a short period after the match. Once the Stadium Suite closes, supporters will be welcome to head down to the Mick Kearns Community Hub.

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 of the Poundland Stand, will be open from 10am before the game. It will also be open at half time and after the final whistle to home supporters.



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.

Aston Villa supporters in the Experienced Energy Solutions Stand will also have access to a concession unit and a bar.



We have a pre-season edition of our programme, Saddlers Shout on sale at tomorrow’s game!

Programmes will be available to purchase around the ground, at the Club Shop and at the Ticket Office.

Tomorrow’s edition is priced at just £3!



Our friends from Acorns Children’s Hospice will be at tomorrow’s match against Aston Villa promoting their upcoming Bubble Rush event!

Bubble Rush is a fun and easy way for you to show your support to the hospice and the children and families they help.

This year’s event is being held at Walsall Arboretum on Sunday 23rd July.

Tickets are now on sale and both Saddlers and Villa fans can get 20% off using the promo code Saddlers20 or Villa20 at checkout (code valid until Sunday 16th July).
