The initiative aims to introduce the next generation of Saddlers supporters and, through the efforts of the Community Programme, 988 extra fans will be seated in the Community Stand.
These fans have received tickets through their Walsall FC Partner School at reduced prices for this one-off game. Forty-one Walsall primary schools have been involved this time around, and we’re looking forward to seeing a packed Community Stand.
Since School Partners games began in 2008, over 20,000 tickets have been sold, with more than £10,000 donated back to local schools.
Schools can get various benefits by partnering with Walsall FC and the Community Programme. Your school can get PE lessons run by qualified coaches, as well as cashback on after school clubs held by their staff. There are also reading, PSHE and teacher CPD sessions available through the Premier League Primary Stars programme.
Partner Schools will get first option on Walsall FC player appearances, and you will be receive a signed football from the club. Other benefits include ground tours, ticket offers on selected Walsall fixtures and an invitation to a national school 6-a-side competition.
