Before most home games there is even more rugby to be enjoyed with Saints hosting regular matchday festivals. 

Festivals are held for young players from the Under-7s age group right up to Under-16s, including the Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup for Under-11s and Under-12s. Clubs come to cinch Stadium at Franklin’s Gardens from across the east of England (and beyond!) to compete on the first team's training pitches, with the winners and runners-up receiving their prizes on the pitch at half-time.

These festivals also serve another purpose  the Saints Academy coaches will be watching and players from Under-13s upwards may be invited back to train with one of Saints’ Player Development Groups.

If you are interested in taking part in a matchday festival, email the Community team at [email protected].
