Club Statement: Sale Sharks vs Northampton Saints

The thoughts and deepest condolences of everyone at Northampton Saints remain with the Royal Family, following yesterday’s announcement of the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

The Club shares in the sorrow of those across the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth who are today mourning Her Majesty The Queen and celebrating her immeasurable contribution to public life, including sport.

Last night’s Premiership Rugby Cup fixture against Saracens and this evening’s opening Premiership match against Sale Sharks were both postponed as a mark of respect.

Alongside Sale Sharks, the Club can now confirm that the Round One Premiership match will instead take place on Sunday (11 September) with a kick-off time of 3pm.

Supporters should not travel to Salford this evening (Friday 9 September). Sale Sharks have confirmed that all tickets purchased for the original date will still be valid. Alternatively, refunds* will be provided to anyone who purchased a match ticket and is unable to attend the rearranged date.

To claim a refund, please email [email protected] before the deadline of 10pm on Saturday 10 September. 

Unfortunately, Premiership Rugby has confirmed that as a result of the rearrangement, Sharks vs Saints will no longer be broadcast on PRTV Live. Highlights of the match will be uploaded to Saints TV, and the full match to PRTV, as soon as permissible by the league which is likely to be 24hrs following the full-time whistle.

All flags at cinch Stadium at Franklin’s Gardens will remain at half-mast throughout the ten-day national mourning period.

 

* booking fee not included.
