The return of Premier League football to St Mary’s means the return of the matchday programme for Southampton’s clash with Leeds United this weekend.
The popular publication, which sold out across Saints’ two pre-season friendlies, is sure to be in high demand again as the first full 68-page edition of the sale is unveiled.
French defender Romain Perraud is the star of the traditional feature interview, as he discusses a disjointed summer battling injury, the influx of French-speaking players to the club, and the unique feeling of walking out of the St Mary’s tunnel on matchday.
Elsewhere, Ralph Hasenhüttl and Franny Benali bookend the programme with their traditional columns, as the manager reflects on a tough opening day and shares his thoughts on this week’s BBC Solent Fans’ Forum, the first since 2019.
Elsewhere, there are revamped history and opposition sections, including fan-written articles and a more detailed look at our opponents, as well as a rundown of all the changes you can expect to see on home matchdays in and around the stadium this season.
Supporters can pick up their Leeds United programme online or from one of the numerous sellers outside St Mary’s and inside the stadium concourse this weekend, enhancing your matchday experience for just £3.50.
