STADIUM CLOCKS
Over the past week, we've installed new clocks within the stadium - these can be found at the back of both the Carlsberg and Church's Stands. Please note: the old clocks in the South and Barwell Stands are no longer in use. 

NEW-LOOK SUPPORTER VILLAGE
If you didn't get a chance to have a look round of new-look Supporter Village last weekend, then be sure to head there on Sunday afternoon. With a brand-new awning, revamped food court and three new cashless bars - alongside the return of the Real Ale bar for the rest of the season - as well as a sheltered family fun zone with challenges from club partners Toolstation, you can now benefit from an abundance of new seating, big screens and more choice of refreshments than ever before.

Please note, all bars within the stadium are now cashless. This season we have introduced dedicated Ecocup returns points throughout the stadium - these will be signposted clearly. Alternatively, you can place your Ecocup into one of the marked bins around the stadium to donate your pound to the worthy causes the Northampton Saints Foundation supports.

Take a look the new Village in the video below:

PRE-MATCH
After their successful introduction last weekend, Rio Brass - a four-piece brass band - will be returning to the Supporter Village stage before the game.

You can watch the stars of the future out of the back pitches as we welcome 17 clubs for our Under-11s Land Rover Cup. And we'll also be joined by Club of the Match - Towcestrians RFC - they'll be with Pete Nuttall for an interview in the Supporter Village pre-match as well as forming the Guard of Honour as the team run out. To find out more about being a Club of the Match at a future game, please CLICK HERE.

Keep an eye out for the Northampton Saints Foundation in the Village, who will have a new range of merchandise available to purchase - with all proceeds going towards the worthy causes the Foundation supports.

AT HALF-TIME
​During the interval, we'll be joined by the teams from the Land Rover Cup as they complete a parade round the pitch - give them a big cheer as they pass you in the stands!

And you can find out which of the 17 teams taking part is heading to Twickenham for the final as the winning team get a photo under the posts!

POST-MATCH
Don't go anywhere after the final whistle blows - we'll be treated to some more music by Rio Brass in the Village!
