Northampton Saints’ league fixture against Newcastle Falcons has today been confirmed by Premiership Rugby.
The men in Black, Green and Gold will travel to Kingston Park on Monday 17 May (kick-off: 7.30pm) to face Dean Richards’ side for the first time this season.
The match at Kingston Park was moved to a Monday in the hope of ensuring a limited number of home supporters may be able to attend.
“The Government has indicated – as part of their Spring Roadmap – that supporters may be allowed to attend sporting fixtures from 17 May. By moving matches into midweek we are ready to welcome fans back if it is decided that it is safe to do so,” said Phil Winstanley, the Rugby Director at Premiership Rugby.
“We’d like to thank BT Sport and the clubs involved for their co-operation in making these changes which we hope will lead to thousands of our supporters seeing Premiership Rugby live in May.
“BT Sport have also confirmed they will show all matches live.”
