SAINTS is back! The Southampton matchday programme returns with a collector’s edition packed with brand-new content to make sure you still feel close to the action – even from your sofa – when the Premier League resumes this week.

The bumper 100-page souvenir publication includes a host of features and interviews, and plenty to entertain Saints fans young and old.

Manager Ralph Hasenhüttl and Chief Executive Officer Martin Semmens deliver heartfelt messages to the club’s supporters, whilst our very own James Ward-Prowse introduces the magazine with some words of encouragement for the Saints family.

Interviews include extended features with the boss, who reveals how he spent life in lockdown back in Germany trying to distract himself from football; Danny Ings, who explains why his mum’s role as a frontline worker in Southampton meant the prospect of his 18-goal campaign gathering dust paled into insignificance; and Shane Long, who opens up about his fears of having to leave the club before signing a two-year contract extension this month.

Manager Ralph Hasenhüttl tells SAINTS how he's kept himself occupied during lockdown

Elsewhere, Saints legend Franny Benali predicts how the Premier League restart will play out, while Saints Foundation round up all the outstanding off-field work that’s gone on behind the scenes, together with the Saints As One campaign.

We’ve showcased that togetherness by including something for all ages, with the usual dose of nostalgia from the club’s historians combined with an extended junior section packed with quizzes, games and interactive challenges for youngsters to enjoy.

With nine Premier League opponents still to play, we profile the lot, including some bitesize tactical analysis from Bleacher Report’s Sam Tighe and a reminder of how we fared against the same sides last time out.

Remember those lockdown dedications? We received close to 100 messages from supporters from all over the world and we’ve found space for every single one of them, so be sure not to miss out on a unique keepsake if you were among those to get in touch. 

This one-off collector’s edition of SAINTS is available to buy online, priced at £5, or as part of our Matchday Box range.
