With the return of the Aviva Premiership this weekend, Saints kick off the festivities of round eleven today as they host Sale Sharks tonight at Franklin’s Gardens.
Here’s everything you need to know if you’re headed to the Gardens tonight…
Kick off time Saints v Sale kicks off at 7.45pm. The game is being broadcast on BT Sport 1 from 7pm but the best place to catch all the action is from within the stadium!
Match tickets Tickets for tomorrow’s game are limited but there are still plenty available here and by using [email protected] supporters can save themselves the admin fees and beat the match day queues.
Saints Shop The Shop will be open from 9am, with the Trinity Shop open in the Village from 5pm and all the way through until after the final whistle. Also at the Trinity Shop from 5.30pm are Dylan Hartley and Harry Mallinder so pop down to get a Christmas selfie with the Saints pair.

Liberty Drum Corps will also be in the Village pre-match so make sure you pop down to see them perform.
Half Time The Rock Choir will be performing during the half time break so stick around in your seat to hear some festive tunes!
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 4pm for the general public, with post-match traffic management to help your journey home.
