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.

Mallinder’s Northampton downfall has parallels with Wenger at Arsenal (Tue, 29 May 2018)
Longevity has come up short. The announcement that Arsène Wenger would leave Arsenal meant this season was the last for the longest-serving club heads in football and rugby’s premierships. Similar to Wenger at Arsenal, Jim Mallinder at Northampton had gone from managing the champions to missing out on a place in the top four for … Continue reading Mallinder’s Northampton downfall has parallels with Wenger at Arsenal

Does Club Rugby need to be Marketed better? (Tue, 01 May 2018)

England’s failure. Blame it on…. (Tue, 27 Mar 2018)
After England’s failure at the Six Nations, finishing only above Italy, (at least no- one has pretended that it was anything but a failure) the knives have all too predictably been going in all directions. Quite a few have landed in Eddie Jones’ back, but many commentators have looked at the Irish and asked what … Continue reading England’s failure. Blame it on….

Football and Rugby crowds (Tue, 06 Feb 2018)
  Why do you think a rugby crowd is so different from a football crowd? Even if it isn’t that different in demographics and profile, the spectator experience certainly is.   Basically, football fans are not trusted not to monster each other. So we’re all on CCTV in and around the ground, and the whole … Continue reading Football and Rugby crowds
