Supporter Information - What’s On At The Northampton Saints Game
It’s the first game of the new Gallagher Premiership season at Kingsholm Stadium, as the Cherry and Whites play host to Northampton Saints on Saturday afternoon (KO 2:00pm) and there is plenty going on alongside the action.

Here is all you need to know if you’re coming to the game!

It’s Gloucester Rugby’s 5000th game! And to mark the occasion, the first 5000 people through the gate will receive a commemorative team poster!

Pick up a copy of the matchday programme which this week will cost £3.50, from around the ground, and get a voucher for a free pint of Stowford Press Mixed Berries courtesy of Weston’s Cider.

The programme includes an exclusive interview with full back Jason Woodward, lots of news from around the club, and a look at our visitors from Franklin’s Gardens.
