Walsall FC - Banks Stadium
The Banks Stadium currently has an all-seated capacity of 11,300 following an extension to the Tile Choice Stand behind one of the goals in 2003. All three other stands are identical in size and height. They also come complete with plenty of view obscuring pillars. Atmosphere is very good and well kept in, aided and assisted by the 4 corners being filled in.
Up to 2,000 visiting fans can be catered for and they are situated in the Kia stand behind one of the goals. There are a number of supporting pillars meaning that views can be restricted unless you're one of the lucky ones that gets a seat right in the middle! If you buy in advance you'll save £2 on your ticket and its worth doing so as queues can be lengthy at the ticket office on match days.

Where To Drink
More often than not The Saddlers Club allows away fans in for a mere quid, but you might have to get there early as there are few pubs in the vicinity so as you may imagine it will get pretty busy and you might be turned away with a thirst. King George V, is around a 10 minute walk and is another option for a beer.
For food there is a McDonalds at the retail park on the way to the ground. There is of course the option of staying more central where there are more pubs and prospects of food and getting a taxi to the ground perhaps. There is a Wetherspoons called “The Imperial” close to the train station that's worth a look.
Parking is in great abundance fortunately. There is a large car park at the stadium priced at £3 per vehicle. There is also a small amount of street parking just off Bescot Crescent, toward the Wallows lane end, within a 10-15 minute walk of the stadium.
