This Saturday the Saints are heading to stadiummk for The Big Kick Off against Newcastle! It’s not the first time that the Saints have played in Milton Keynes, but it is always worth familiarising yourself with travel arrangements.
Coaches (for coach ticket holders only) will begin leaving Franklin’s Gardens at 10:30am on Saturday morning. The last coach will leave Northampton at approx. 12noon, but do not leave it that late! Supporter car parking will be in Car Park D, off Edgar Mobbs Way.
Coaches will begin returning immediately after the end of the Saints game, and will continue to leave until everyone has left the Arena Match Day Village at the end of the Rugby World Cup semi-final. Coaches will be leaving on a ‘load and go’ basis, so do not leave any personal belongings on board!
No more coach tickets can be booked, so unless you have a ticket then please do not arrive at Franklin’s Gardens expecting to travel. If you have not yet received your coach ticket email [email protected]
ON-SITE CAR PARKING
stadiummk car parks will only be available to supporters who have a car parking pass. Season Car Park Pass Holders at Franklin’s Gardens should by now have received their pass for stadiummk. If you have not yet received your pass email [email protected]
