NEW-LOOK SUPPORTER VILLAGE
Get here early on Saturday to be one of the first to take a look round the new-look Supporter Village. With a brand-new awning, revamped food court and three new cashless bars - alongside the return of the Real Ale bar (just in time for National Real Ale Week!) for the rest of the season - as well as a sheltered family fun zone, 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.

For a sneak peak of the new Village, check out the video below:

PRE-MATCH
As part of our new, diverse line-up of entertainment set to grace the Supporter Village stage through the season, we'll be joined by Rio Brass - a five-piece brass band - this weekend who'll be gifting us with some tunes before the game. 

You can also watch the stars of the future out of the back pitches as we welcome 18 clubs for our Under-8s match day festival.

We'll also be joined by Club of the Match - Old Northamptonians - 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.Old Northamptonians will also receive their framed shirt as part of the rewards from the scheme.

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

And you'll need your loudest voices to cheer Bernie on as he takes on Wasps' mascot Sting in the Mascot Race!

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!
