Ground Information:

Northampton Saints' journey to create a stadium with seating on all four   sides has been a long one.

Tetleys Stand:This holds about 6,000 people, and has 10 executive boxes. The stand’s capacity is split between the Gordon Terrace and seating.

The Burrda Stand: In 2005 the South Stand was doubled in size. The redevelopment involved extending the South Stand over the lake in the village area of the ground to make room for additional seating. It as re-named the Burrda Stand in 2010 after the club’s new kit sponsors.

The Church’s Stand: The Church’s Stand is the other all seater stand. It was the last part of the old stadium to be developed and completed the horseshoe in 2002.

Barwell Stand:This is to the north of the ground and replaces the Sturtridge Pavilion, which is the oldest part of the current stadium and has been extended in a piecemeal fashion over the past 50 years

This will increase the capacity to 15,500, and the new stand will include just under 2,000 general admission seats as well as new hospitality areas.

 

Tickets: Tickets for home and away games can be booked through the   ticket office on 01604 581000, or by calling into Franklins Gardens between 9am    and 5pm Monday to Friday ,9am to 7pm Thursday, and 9am and noon on Saturday.

Telephone lines direct to the ticket office close at 11.30 on   a matchday.

Saints’ fans who want to get married at Franklin’s Gardens can now do so, following the granting of a civil marriage licence. This also includes getting married in the stands, although the pitch still remains out of bounds, at least for the time being.

The Ospreys and Lions scrum-half signed for Toulon earlier this month, days before the Welsh Rugby Union announced a change to its policy governing players outside the country, entrapping the 28-year old.

Rugby needs to learn the right lessons from Football (Wed, 17 May 2017)
Colin Boag is a regular columnist in The Rugby Paper, and I usually find him worth reading. However, he is one of those rugby writers who like to blame all rugby’s ills on football. He was at it again in a recent column. He was writing about players’ attempts to get others booked, and predictably … Continue reading Rugby needs to learn the right lessons from Football

Premiership Rugby ambition must be challenged by RFU. (Mon, 08 May 2017)
The Champions Cup final this weekend will lack a team from the Pro 12 for the fifth consecutive season following the Munster and Leinster semi-final defeats. The tournament has become an Anglo-French production, although in those five years only four clubs have made it to the final: Toulon, Saracens, Clermont Auvergne and, last year, Racing … Continue reading Premiership Rugby ambition must be challenged by RFU.
