Poundland Bescot Stadium

Bescot Crescent


West Midlands



Walsall moved to the Poundland Bescot Stadium, originally known as just the Bescot Stadium, in 1990, and the ground houses over 11,000 seats.

The facility is comprised of four stands: the Poundland Stand, which was extended in 2003, the Tile Choice Stand, the Experienced Energy Solutions Stand, and the B.A.T Stand, where the visiting supporters are housed.

The stadium, which was opened by Sir Stanley Matthews, has also played host to England Women’s internationals.


Car parking is available at the ground at a cost of £7 per car.

While Walsall operate a cashless facility, parking is cash payments only.

The Green Zone car park is locked two hours after the final whistle - and any vehicles left in the car park will be locked in. 

Cheaper alternatives can be found at the Bescot Stadium Railway Station - just opposite the ground. Offering pay-and-display parking, it costs £2 to park here, but supporters are advised to arrive early to avoid disappointment. 

Wallows Lane is a five-minute walk from the stadium, and is free, but the area is not patrolled so cars are left at your own risk.


Supporters are advised that the Poundland Bescot Stadium is an entirely cashless venue. 

To Drink:

Just a short walk along Bescot Crescent, is the Park Inn Hotel which has a sizeable bar. 

Historically, Walsall have opted not to sell alcohol to away supporters inside the stadium, but the Saddlers do now serve to visiting fans.

The nearest pub to the stadium is the King George V on Wallowes Lane. It does get busy on matchdays, however, which can make it difficult to get served quickly.

To Eat:

There is a Morrisons Supermarket and McDonald's just 15 minutes from the ground. 

The stadium also offers an extensive matchday menu, which ranges from the usual pies and burgers to Cornish pasties and hotdogs.


By Car:

Leave the M6 at junction 9 and take the A461 towards Walsall.

Turn right onto the A4148 and right again at the second set of traffic lights. 

The ground will appear on your left.

By Train:

Bescot Stadium Railway Station is served by trains from Birmingham Grand Central and Wolverhampton, and is just opposite the ground.

Walsall advise travelling fans to use Walsall station for disability access, as Bescot Stadium station is not able to support access needs.


Travelling Bantams should expect a clear sky with light winds, but are advised to wrap up warm as highs of just 1°C are expected in the Midlands.
