New signing Jannik Vestergaard hogs the headlines – quite literally – as Southampton’s matchday programme returns with a brand-new look for 2018/19.
The new design features a distinctive magazine style, and acts as a double programme inclusive of both friendly fixtures against Celta Vigo and Borussia Mönchengladbach.
This means the same publication will be on sale at both matches – and at a reduced price of £3 for 68 pages.
Inside, ex-Mönchengladbach defender Vestergaard discusses the prospect of making his home debut before potentially facing his former teammates on Saturday, as well as revealing more about his experience at the World Cup and how he’s been made to feel welcome by his new club.
Elsewhere, there are plenty of behind-the-scenes photos from China, where Saints spent two weeks of pre-season, while Steven Davis discusses life inside the dressing room and Radhi Jaïdi explains why he is feeling optimistic about the Under-23s’ chances in 2018/19.
There is the traditional dose of Saints nostalgia, while younger readers can enjoy an extended Junior Section packed with quiz questions and games to help pass the time in the lead up to kick-off and during the half-time break.
