Supporters Guide: Morecambe

6 February 2024

Walsall are back at the Poundland Bescot Stadium this evening as we welcome Morecambe in Sky Bet League Two, kick off 7.45pm.

Here is a useful guide for supporters attending the match. 

TRAVEL

CAR: In order to manage a smooth exit from the Poundland Bescot Stadium after the final whislte, supporters who are planning to park on the Green Zone car park will exit the car park from an alternative route.

Stewards will be on hand to direct supporters past the astro turf pitch before directing you towards the Park Hotel exit and turning left onto Bescot Crescent before turning left again onto Alexandra Road - this will be in place as a trial to manage any potential traffic congestion following the game.

M6: M6 Junction 10 has a full closure northbound entry slip road and southbound exit slip road starting from 9pm. If you are traveling by car, follow the diversion route on your return journey for the closure or avoid the area if possible.   

TRAIN: Industrial action may affect travel to and from today's match with cancellations possible at late notice. Passengers are advised to check their journey before travelling.
