Important match day information for Saints v Connacht

Friday, May 19, 2017

Supporters heading to Franklin’s Gardens on Saturday afternoon need to note the following information.

GETTING TO FRANKLIN’S GARDENS

Major roadworks are still ongoing on Weedon Road, so if you are coming from the east side of Northampton either use the ring road to approach the official club car parks on Edgar Mobbs Way from Sixfields or park in the town centre and walk the 20-or-so minutes to Franklin’s Gardens. Avoid parking in the residential side streets around Franklin’s Gardens.

The official club car parks open at 12:30pm, and 2016/17 Season Car Park Pass Holders can use their pass to enter for free.

PRE-MATCH

The Saints Ticket Office will be open at 9am. Please do not wait until close to kick off to collect any tickets, as this will cause lengthy queues and increase the chances of missing the start of the match. Print@Home general sale tickets can be booked by CLICKING HERE.

The Village opens at 1pm, and the day’s first Aviva Premiership semi-final between Exeter and Saracens will be shown on the big screen, with coverage starting at 1:45pm.

The stadium and bars open in full at 2pm, with kick off at 4pm.

As this is a knockout game then if there is a draw at full-time there will be 20 minutes’ extra time played, and a kicking competition if necessary.

POST-MATCH

Due to a pre-arranged event, the Rodber Suite will close at 7pm. The Members’ Bar and Village Marquee will remain open until 7:30pm.

The Members’ Bar and Village big screen will be showing the second half of the Aviva Premiership semi-final between Wasps and Leicester, unless the Saints’ game goes into extra time.

Tickets are still available for the Ministry of Sound 90s party in the Rodber Suite, which starts at 9pm. CLICK HERE to book online and to make a full day and night of it at the Gardens!
