Please allow extra time for Covid-19 status checks and arrive at St Mary’s as early as possible.

HUMMEL RETAIL BOOTHS
You can now pick up official Saints merchandise from hummel retail booths situated in the concourse of the Kingsland, Northam and Chapel stands – remember, Season Ticket holders get 10 per cent off!
Please be aware that St Mary’s is now a cashless stadium so make sure you bring an alternative payment method for any purchases at the stadium on matchdays.
This season you’ll find reusable pint cups in the St Mary's concourses and the Fanzone in a bid to reduce single-use plastics - when you’ve finished with yours, please place it inside so they can be collected after each match, washed thoroughly and recirculated.
Please be aware that half-time entertainment is currently restricted by the requirement to maintain a Red Zone to keep players safe.
