Saracens are expected to move into their new home at Barnet Copthall in February 2013. Saracens have been seeking alternative venues for their fixtures and have come to an arrangement with the Saints management to hold December's game in Milton Keynes.
Given the Saints' recent history of successfully filling stadiumMK â00 including achieving the venue's attendance record for the 2011 Heineken Cup quarter final â00 it has been agreed with Saracens that all public ticket sales and hospitality bookings will be handled at Franklin's Gardens.
â00It's a great opportunity for Saints supporters to turn an away fixture into a home game,â0 said Saints chief executive Allan Robson. â00Games against Saracens are always competitive and the support from the stands could make all the difference. We are familiar with the stadium and with the Saints handling ticket sales our supporters will find it straightforward to book their place at one of the biggest matches of the season.
â00With our own ticket office looking after all bookings we have also been able to give our Season Ticket Holders the opportunity to save 25 percent on the standard ticket price for every ticket they order, so it will be a great opportunity for them to bring their friends and family to a big game featuring their club.
â00It promises to be a fantastic festive season of rugby, with the home game against Harlequins followed by the clash against Saracens just 20 minutes down the road the following weekend.â0
