Northampton Saints Season Ticket Holders and supporters have the opportunity to join the club’s management and former players at the Barwell Stand’s formal opening ceremony before the Aviva Premiership game against London Irish on Saturday, February 13th.
Although the afternoon’s celebrations will include a ribbon cutting immediately before kick off, there will also be a ceremony in the stand earlier in the afternoon which will include a presentation to Keith Barwell, a special behind-the-scenes tour of Franklin’s Gardens, and a reception in the Members’ Bar.
To join this ceremony, which will be invitation only, Season Ticket Holders and supporters need to enter a ballot. Places are limited, and ballot applications need to be made for each individual that wishes to attend (i.e. Season Ticket Holders or supporters cannot apply for multiple people at once).
To enter simply head to www.northamptonsaints.co.uk/barwellopening and complete the form. Entries close at 9am on Monday, February 1st. Non-Season Ticket Holders must have already booked their match tickets before applying, and use their order number as their proof of purchase.
“The opening of the Barwell Stand is about celebrating the proud history and bright future of Northampton Saints and Franklin’s Gardens, which is why we want Season Ticket Holders and supporters to be able to thank the Barwell family in person,” said chief executive Allan Robson.
“The entire crowd will have their chance to show their appreciation just before kick off, but this ceremony will be more intimate and personal, which is why we’ve had to limit the number of people who can attend, for obvious reasons.
“It will be an enjoyable part of what will be a memorable day.”
