Venue details

  • The Banks's Stadium
  • Bescot Crescent
  • Walsall
  • West Midlands
  • WS1 4SA

BY CAR: The stadium is literally minutes off M6 junction 9 or less than a mile from Walsall city centre. As the stadium will be host to a pre-season friendly on the Saturday (which you have executive box level view of, from inside the event!) and Bescot outdoor market on the Sunday, the venue car park is off limits to general public parking. 

PARKING: Paid parking is available directly opposite the stadium on the train station car park for £4 a day, and the match day parking operators just round the corner at Joseph Leckie Academy have also made special arrangements for REVIVAL event parking at the slightly cheaper £2 per day.

BY RAIL: Bescot rail station is directly opposite the stadium and can be reached by regular service from Cannock or Birmingham New Street station.

BY BUS: West Midlands travel and several other services operate from Wolverhampton, West Bromwich, Cannock, Birmingham and many other major towns that take you directly into Walsall or to the stadium itself on a regular basis. Please check local timetables for exact service numbers and times.

If staying in a city centre hotel, it's just a 20 minute walk or short taxi ride down to the stadium.
