WEATHER
With the weather set to be cool but dry on Friday night, Franklin’s Gardens will boast perfect conditions to conclude preseason before the Gallagher Premiership gets underway next weekend.

CAR PARKING
Car Parks A, B, C and D will all be open as usual to season pass holders. Day passes for Car Park D will be available on the gate for £5.

Please note, supporters will not be able to access our car parks from the Weedon Road via Ross Road due to the barrier remaining closed. Please use Edgar Mobbs Way instead. 

UNRESERVED AND DISABLED SEATING
Seating for the game is completely unreserved, with only the Carlsberg and South Stands open on Friday. 2018/19 Season Ticket Holders will be given access to the game free of charge, but may not be able to sit in their allocated seats for this fixture.

Disabled supporters are requested to please report to reception upon arrival at Franklin's Gardens, where you will be shown to disabled seating in either the Carlsberg or South Stand depending on availability.

AWAY KIT
After getting the opportunity to see the brand-new 2018/19 away kit for the very first time at Saints' Open Training Session on Thursday (23 August), don't miss out on the chance to bag yours. And with the Saints Store open from 9am, you've got plenty of time to don some new attire before the game kicks off.

CASHLESS BARS
Saints will be trialling a 50% cashless system at the bars on Friday, with four tills in the Rodber Bar and six tills in the Marquee Bar accepting card payments only, to reduce queues and further improve Saints’ supporters matchday experience. 

The Village marquee, Rodber bar, and South Stand concourse will all be open on Friday evening.

TEST EVACUATION
Please be aware that there will be a test evacuation of the stadium after the game. Please follow the instructions given to you over the PA system and comply with the Safety team while we carry this out. Stadium bars will still be open for use during this evacuation but all personnel inside the stadium on the final whistle must vacate the stadium bowl while the test evacuation takes place.

Please be aware that due to the test evacuation there will be no opportunity to get player autographs by the tunnel and no signed balls will be handed out after this game. 

Tickets for the game are still available from £15 adults, £12 concessions and £5 juniors, CLICK HERE to book.
