Supporters Guide: Walsall v Gillingham

13 October 2023

Walsall are back at the Poundland Bescot Stadium on Saturday to take on Gillingham (3pm).

Here is a useful guide for supporters attending the match. 

ACTIVITIES

There will be lots going on at the Poundland Bescot Stadium tomorrow!

To celebrate National Lorry Week, we are delighted to be welcoming the Road Haulage Association to tomorrow’s game against Gillingham.

Working alongside our partners Poundland, Hayward Transport and SPV Group, the Road Haulage Association will have a range of activities for supporters outside the Poundland Bescot Stadium.

There will be a number of trucks outside the stadium, opposite the Supporters Zone, where supporters will be invited to take a look.

National Lorry Week is aimed to help raise awareness and promote road safety.

We are also delighted to welcome Walsall Society for the Blind to tomorrow’s match for their charity takeover game.

There will be bucket collections around the Poundland Bescot Stadium, a stall opposite the Supporters Zone.

Elsewhere, with our inflatable goal a regular feature in the Supporters Zone, the charity will be handing out blind folds so supporters can take a shot whilst blindfolded.

There will also be further activities during the half-time interval as well.

 

TOGETHER AGAINST RACISM

At Walsall Football Club, we believe that Football is a game for everyone and we are proud of the welcoming atmosphere that you create at the Poundland Bescot Stadium every matchday.

However, every season, there are hundreds of reports of discrimination across the game, and likely more that go unrecorded.

As part of the EFL’s Together Against Racism campaign we are calling on you, our supporters, to make a difference and report any incidents of racism or discrimination you see or hear in the ground today and at all matches in the future.

Reporting discrimination helps remove unwanted behaviour from football stadiums, allows us to identify abusers and ensure victims get the support they need, creating a safer environment for everyone to attend football matches.  

Walsall Football Club and all of football stands Together against Racism and all forms of discrimination. 

Enjoy the game.
