As a recognised supporters’ group, ISSA are proud to represent and serve Walsall fans and work with local community groups and good causes.
The Independent Saddlers Supporters Association
ISSA represent more than 400 members, with a commitment to offering a wide range of services to supporters including representation, match day hospitality, coach travel and our own line of Saddlers related merchandise.
Our Committee works openly with Walsall FC and the wider community and has been instrumental in raising vital funds for the club during the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic.
We also work to support a wide range of local causes, including the NHS, Walsall Outreach, and youth football teams located in the borough. Our team also enjoys a great relationship with many former Walsall players, including our Honorary President, Stan Bennett.
Founded in 2018, ISSA is led by a committee of volunteers and abides by a constitution formally endorsed by the FSA and Walsall Football Club.

In partnership with the Railway we offer regular entertainment and fundraising events for supporters, including a bustling venue for home match days with good beer, food, music, pool and plenty of seating space.
The Railway also acts as a base for our affordable coach travel to away games and the ISSA shuttle bus service to the Stadium for home games.
