It may be the off-season, but hunger for rugby is still here in the East Midlands with 2,500 tickets having been booked already for the Northampton leg of the Singha Premiership Rugby Sevens Series.
The annual season curtain-raiser returns to Franklin’s Gardens on Friday, July 29th with the Saints taking on Harlequins (2015 Sevens Series finalists), Gloucester (two-time Sevens Series winners) and Saracens (newly-crowned Aviva Premiership and Champions Cup champions) in an evening of frenetic action that will feature some of the country’s best young players.
2016 is the biggest ever year for Rugby Sevens, which joins the Olympic programme in Rio de Janeiro in August. And this excitement has been reflected in the advance ticket bookings, which are well ahead of where they were the last time the Premiership Sevens was held in Northampton two years ago.
There will be plenty of fun and games on and off the pitch at Franklin’s Gardens on July 29th, with more details to be announced closer to the time.
Entry is just £6 for juniors and concessions and £12 for adults – great value for an evening’s entertainment!
