Northampton Saints Victory Parade

Northampton Saints are champions of England for the first time in a decade following today’s stunning 25-21 victory over Bath. Saints will host an open-top bus parade on Sunday afternoon, with the whole squad and coaching group departing from cinch Stadium at Franklin’s Gardens at 2pm, and arriving at the Guildhall in St Giles Square at approximately 2.30pm.

The men in Black, Green and Gold lifted the Gallagher Premiership trophy at Twickenham for only the second time in the Club’s history – and tomorrow will celebrate in style with our supporters in Northampton.

The bus will travel to Northampton Town Centre via Weedon Road, St James Road, Mare Fair, Gold Street, Mercers Row and Wood Hill – a map detailing the squad’s journey in full can be found below, and supporters can turn out on any of the roads along the route to create a sea of Black, Green and Gold and celebrate with the team.

Saints will be greeted at the Guildhall by three dignitaries from West Northamptonshire Council; Cllr Adam Brown (Leader, WNC), Cllr Jo Gilford (Chairman, WNC), and Cllr Paul Joyce (Mayor of Northampton).

A stage will be set-up outside the Guildhall where several player interviews, musical performances and other exciting activities will take place following the team’s arrival – all hosted by our stadium announcer, Pete Nuttall.

The players will also have time to mingle with supporters, show off the trophy and pose for photographs before they depart at approximately 3.30pm.

The event is free-to-attend and entry to the supporter area in front of the Guildhall will be open from 1pm. Anyone carrying a bag may be subject to searches upon entry. 

Please note; there will be no public access to any area of cinch Stadium at Franklin’s Gardens on Sunday.
 

The Club would like to express its gratitude to everyone at West Northamptonshire Council for their involvement in orchestrating this event.

We wish to remind all supporters that they have a responsibility to act as ambassadors of Northampton Saints, and should treat the area, as well as all those in attendance, with respect.
