Eight of Northampton Saints’ remaining nine Gallagher Premiership fixtures, including dates and kick-off times, have today been announced by Premiership Rugby.
Chris Boyd’s side face Wasps, Bath, Exeter Chiefs and Sale Sharks on home soil at Franklin’s Gardens in a busy run-in to the season, while travelling to lock horns with London Irish, Harlequins, Bristol Bears, Leicester Tigers and Gloucester on the road.
Premiership Rugby are still in consultation with clubs over the composition of Round 21 (when Saints will welcome Sale Sharks), with confirmed fixtures for that weekend to be announced at a later date.
Until government guidance changes and it is safe for supporters to return to stadia to watch live sport again, all matches will be played behind closed doors – but BT Sport have today confirmed that they will be broadcasting all matches played without crowds live.
A ground-breaking agreement between Premiership Rugby and BT Sport means supporters fans can watch more live matches than ever before from 14 August onwards, including all six matches in Round 14.
Premiership Rugby can also confirm that the 2020-21 Gallagher Premiership Rugby season will start on Friday 20 November, concluding with the Final at Twickenham Stadium on Saturday 26 June.

The BT Sport Match Pass is designed for Season Ticket Holders of participating clubs who do not already have a BT Sport subscription, and cannot attend their home matches in person due to the current restrictions.
