Northampton Saints plc has today announced its results for the year ended 30th June 2021.
“Clearly, this was an incredibly difficult period for the Club – arguably the most significant challenge in our 140-year history,” said Mark Darbon, Northampton Saints Chief Executive.
“But we can confidently say that as we reached the end of the reporting period, we began to see shoots of recovery thanks to the decisive mitigating action taken by the Club, the backing of our existing and new partners, and the unwavering commitment towards Northampton Saints from our community of supporters.
“Covid-19 had a substantial impact on the 2020/21 financial year. However, Saints entered the pandemic with a strong balance sheet, a talented management team and a loyal supporter base. This, along with a substantial Sports Survival loan from DCMS, has enabled the Club to weather the financial shock thus far.
“Looking forward, we are optimistic that the Club is on a stable footing for the future, with a robust strategy and a very capable and dedicated team in place – on and off the pitch.
“With our supporters back with us again inside cinch Stadium at Franklin’s Gardens, we have made a promising start to the 2021/22 campaign, so we are excited to see what the rest of the current season has in store.”
