Northampton Saints announce replacement fixture for Worcester clash

Northampton Saints are delighted to announce that Barbarian F.C., the most famous invitational rugby side in the world, are heading to cinch Stadium at Franklin’s Gardens in November for an unmissable exhibition match.

The men in Black, Green and Gold will face the BaaBaas – a team famed since their inception over 130 years ago for their focus on flair and entertainment – on Saturday 26 November (kick-off: 3pm).

The fixture replaces the Saints’ previously-scheduled Gallagher Premiership match against Worcester Warriors, with all Season Tickets and seasonal hospitality valid for the game. Match tickets are available to purchase HERE* and start from just £18 for adults while all under-18s tickets are capped at £5.

While they have faced East Midlands sides at Franklin’s Gardens throughout their history, this will be the very first time the Barbarians have locked horns with Northampton Saints, and the Club’s Chief Executive Mark Darbon believes this historic occasion will be a must-watch for rugby fans across Northampton and beyond.

“The Barbarians are rugby’s version of the Harlem Globetrotters, wowing their crowds whenever they play, so we are absolutely thrilled to confirm this historic fixture for next month,” he said.

“I’m sure all our supporters will agree that watching the BaaBaas in Northampton is an incredible opportunity, and we are grateful to everyone at Barbarian F.C. for their support in organising the match at short notice. We’re looking forward to playing our part in creating a fantastic spectacle at cinch Stadium at Franklin’s Gardens.”
