POPPY SHIRTS

Saints' closest home match to Remembrance Sunday, respects will be shown to British service members who have lost their lives in conflict with a period of silence before the match. Saints players will be wearing a commemorative poppy-branded shirt and the Royal British Legion will be collecting donations around the outside of the stadium before kick off.

All of the shirts worn on matchday will be put up for auction by Saints Foundation to help raise money for the Royal British Legion.

PITCHSIDE INTERVIEWS

AROUND THE GROUND

CATERING CHOICES

A variety of food options will be available around the stadium ahead of the match, including Oh Babu (Indian style food), Villaggio Pizza and Evies (mac & cheese and burgers).

FAN BARS AND GASWORKS

From 11am you can soak up the matchday atmosphere from three fan bars outside St Mary’s. You will find The Deanery located on the corner by the bridge, The Gasworks midway down the Kingsland stand and the 8 Bells at the corner of Chapel and Kingsland.

The Gasworks is open to all on a first-come-first-served basis from 11am until kick-off – with no membership required. This week you’ll be able to buy a Hampshire burger with cheese, gherkins and wedges; vegetarian burgers with all the trimmings or chicken, gammon and leek pie with mash and gravy.

The extended outdoor seating area makes the perfect place to enjoy a pre-match pint or cocktail and if you’re watching the game from the Kingsland stand you’ll also be able to access The Gasworks at half time.

In addition we’re opening the Gasworks post match, so you can stay and watch the late kick-off between Tottenham and Liverpool.

Sammy and Mary will be roaming the footprint from 11am, meeting fans and posing for photographs.

SAINTS BRASS

Saints Brass are bringing the party atmosphere and playing family favourites ahead of the game. Join us for a pre-match rendition of 'Oh When The Saints'.
