It’s the return of the European Champions Cup this weekend as Saints host Castres Olympique in the fifth round of the competition so far.
Here’s everything you need to know if you’re headed to the Gardens tomorrow afternoon…
Kick off time Saints v Castres kicks off at 1pm. The game is being broadcast on Sky Sports 2 but the best place to catch all the action is in the stadium!
Saints Shop The Shop will be open from 9am, with the Trinity Shop open in the Village from 11am and all the way through until after the final whistle. Make sure you head to the Shop to take advantage of all the great deals we’ve got in our January Shop Sale.
Ticket Office In-person sales will be available from 9am from within the Saints Shop with the Ticket Office open from 11am. The Ticket Office will then remain open until 30 minutes after the final whistle.

Food The Match Day Village will be open from 11am, with hot snacks also available in the stadium bars.
In the Village Supporters can have their faces painted and visit the Crabbie’s bus (over-18s only) from 11am. And you could win £100 with Connect FM – just visit a member of their team for a special scratchcard! There will also be a passing challenge in the Village with chances to win prizes from the Saints Store.
Half Time Half time sees the visit of Saints Legends, Heineken Cup winning Director of Rugby John Steele and Heineken Cup winning Matty Stewart along with other players from the late 90s, so stick around in your seats after the half time whistle to hear from them!
The Saints DNA Project The club is wanting to find out from you, the supporters, about your first ever game watching the Saints. So the Halos will be in the Village and bars asking about your experiences! Whether you’re are six or 60, we want to hear from you!
Car parking The club’s car parks on Edgar Mobbs Way open from 10:30am for the general public, with post-match traffic management to help your journey home. Supporters who choose not to use the club’s car parks are asked to park with due care and respect for the needs of local businesses in the area surrounding Franklin’s Gardens
