Northampton Saints have announced ticket details for the club’s Amlin Challenge Cup semi-final against Harlequins on Friday April 25 and will be celebrating the occasion with a half-price for discount for season ticket holders.
The game, which will be the first European semi-final to be held at Franklin’s Gardens since May 2009, has been classified as a Category A game.
Season ticket holders will also have a priority booking period until noon on Monday April 14 in which to guarantee their usual seat or terrace space before all tickets go on general sale.
All spaces not currently taken up by season ticket holders are already available on general sale.
Saints’ chief executive Allan Robson explained that the half-price discount offer is a gesture of thanks from the club to season ticket holders for their support during the campaign so far.
Mr Robson said: “Season ticket holders have shown tremendous support throughout the season, not just in the Aviva Premiership but in the LV= Cup home semi-final as well.”
“We are very aware that having a successful season can put a strain on peoples’ wallets, especially at this time of year.
“This is our second home semi-final of the season, with a home Aviva Premiership play-off very much a possibility, too, and with excellent support and a bit of luck we could also be looking forward to trips to finals in Cardiff and at Twickenham.
“Hopefully as many season ticket Holders as possible will take up this offer for what is a big game for us against one of the strongest sides in the country. Every bit of support will help the team as they try to reach another final and we would like to see Franklin’s Gardens packed to the rafters.”
Harlequins are no strangers to success in the Amlin Challenge Cup, having lifted the trophy in 2011. Like the Saints, Harlequins qualified for the quarter finals having finished second in a Heineken Cup pool which included Clermont Auvergne, the Scarlets and Racing Metro.
They have a strong European pedigree, not least on the road, having won at Toulouse and Munster in the past couple of seasons and against Stade Francais last Friday night in Paris.
