As part of an EFL campaign, following various pitch incursions at the end of last season, supporters are reminded to keep the pitch for players and the stands for spectators and avoid any unnecessary disruption.

Annual Upbeats Day

Saturday's matchday is the club's annual Upbeats Day. As part of the day, supporters will take part in a nine-mile walk from the training ground in New Eltham to The Valley to raise money for the club's much-loved Upbeats. Sign up to take part here

Fans are encouraged to arrive at the ground early to support Charlton's Upbeats, who will be taking on Everton on The Valley pitch from 1.30pm. Charlton Athletic Community Trust ambassador and lifelong Addick Dave Berry will be pitchside. 

The Upbeats squad will then perform a lap of the pitch during the interval, allowing fans to show their support. Jonathan West will also be having a crack at the crossbar challenge at half-time!
