Club News Northampton Saints unveils four-year Strategic Plan
Northampton Saints plc, the parent company of Northampton Saints, has today unveiled the Strategic Plan that maps out the Aviva Premiership finalists’ future and ambitions for the next four seasons.
The Plan takes the club from the present day to the end of the 2016/17 season, encompassing all areas of the operations at Franklin’s Gardens, including continuing the success on the field, increasing customer satisfaction and realising the Saints’ commercial potential, commitment to social and community engagement, empowering employees, and maintaining the stadium’s reputation in terms of its facilities, atmosphere and match day experience.
The Strategic Plan is available to all supporters and stakeholders as a download from the Saints’ website.
Chairman Tony Hewitt said that the successful implementation and execution of the Strategic Plan was crucial as the Saints looks to entrench its place as one of the best rugby clubs in Europe.
“I’m sure that everyone associated with Northampton Saints is as proud as I am of what has been achieved here over the past 15 years,” he commented. “We have built one of the best club rugby stadiums in the country and have worked hard to build a model where we are self-sustaining and financially stable.
“Over the past few years we have also gone from strength to strength on the field, too, reaching six cup finals in as many seasons, attracting world class players, developing more England internationals than at any point in our history, and establishing a production line of outstanding local talent.
“However we cannot afford to be complacent, and we needed a structured plan to continue our journey of success. We also know that we need to be accountable to our supporters, sponsors and shareholders, which is why we are making this Strategic Plan available to anyone who wants a copy.
“There are many challenges and opportunities which lie ahead over the next few years, from the re-shaping of European competition to maximising the legacy of the upcoming Rugby World Cup. Northampton Saints is uniquely placed to meet those challenges and make the most of the opportunities. We are financially sound, have hard working and dedicated staff, long-standing and mutually beneficial relationships with our sponsors, and have a sizeable, loyal and committed supporter base.
“We are proud of our history but believe that we also have a bright future ahead of us. Our Strategic Plan sets out our vision, our values and shows how we will continue the journey of this great club.”
