Travel Information For Walsall FC
Banks’s Stadium is located right next to the M6, in fact you can see it from the motorway just north of the RAC Control Centre.
Unfortunately, this stretch of motorway normally has a large traffic jam on both Saturday lunchtimes and early weekday evenings, so allow extra time.
