Please arrive early for Rochdale game

On Saturday, Northampton Town’s game with Rochdale kicks off at 3pm, while Northampton Saints are also at home, they play Gloucester with a 12.30pm kick off.

The Saints post match traffic plan will be in operation, with the majority of their crowd leaving their ground between 2pm and 3pm.

This is of course the time when most supporters will be arriving at Sixfields.

Adjustments have been made to the plan that should, in the main, mean that supporters coming to Sixfields are unaffected. Those supporters using the north car park and the West VIP car park can do so as normal, as can those entering the south gravel car park, although those using the south car park will be crossing a roundabout busy with Saints exit traffic (albeit supporters going into the south car park will have right of way.)

Coaches and disabled car park permit holders who need to get down to the car park behind the South Stand car park can do so, stewards will be stationed on the roundabout by the Walter Tull Memorial to allow them to do this.

However, we would ask supporters to note traffic will be very busy in the area on Saturday and we would ask supporters to arrive early. 

The club are putting on plenty of pre-match entertainment to encourage fans to arrive ahead of the Saints fans departing. Batemans XB real ale will be on sale in Carr’s Bar, while Carr’s Bar will also be showing the live Sky Sports game between Tottenham and Newcastle.

Turnstiles at Sixfields will open at 1.30pm, and that game can also be viewed on the West Stand concourse from that time.

On the pitch we will be presenting the Northampton Audi January Player of the Month award before kick off, while there will be a dance performance from hundreds of local school children.

The message is, please arrive early on Saturday and allow extra time for your journey.
