Tickets for Northampton Saints' opening fixture in this year's Premiership Rugby Cup are now on general sale, with Bristol Bears coming to town to kick off the campaign.
Formerly the Anglo-Welsh Cup, the Premiership Rugby Cup has been reformed this season and involves all 12 Gallagher Premiership Rugby clubs playing over four pool rounds, including a 'Derby Day', followed by the semi-finals and Final.
With total prize money of more than half a million pounds the Premiership Rugby Cup final will be staged at the home ground of the highest-seeded team.
Saints find themselves in Pool three alongside Wasps, Gloucester Rugby and Bristol Bears with the three pool winners and the best runner up moving into the semi-finals.
A Franklin’s Gardens showdown with the newly-promoted Bears awaits in round one on Saturday 27th October (kick-off 2pm), and the sides will know each other well after locking horns in the Gallagher Premiership four weeks beforehand.
Tickets are now on general sale, starting at £22 for adults and £10 for juniors until the Early Bird window ends on Sunday 30th September.
