Saints are set to play Bedford Blues in preseason

Saints’ preseason opener against Bedford Blues confirmed

Northampton Saints supporters will get their first opportunity of the 2022/23 season to see the men in Black, Green and Gold on Saturday 27 August as Bedford Blues come to town.

Phil Dowson’s side will lock horns with their Championship neighbours on home soil in their first match of preseason, with kick-off set for 2.30pm at cinch Stadium at Franklin’s Gardens.

Bedford will visit Northampton for the first time since the two sides began their strategic partnership back in June 2020. And with nine tries scored between Saints and Blues in last season’s preseason clash, which ended 40-21 to Northampton, this year’s showdown is sure to have action aplenty. 

Entry to this match is FREE for 2022/23 Season Ticket Holders, residents of The Parish, and 2022/23 Saints Members – with all other tickets priced at £10 for adults and £5 for juniors*. 

Another preseason fixture for Saints ahead of the new Gallagher Premiership season – which kicks off on the weekend of 9-11 September – is set to be confirmed in the coming weeks.
