Travel information confirmed for Saints v Saracens at stadiummk

Northampton Saints, the stadiummk management and Milton Keynes Council have announced the travel information for the Saints’ upcoming ‘Best of English’ Aviva Premiership match against Saracens, being played at stadiummk on Saturday, April 25th.

With around 24,000 tickets having been sold, and four weeks still to go before the game, stadiummk is set for a venue attendance record and a full house, and supporters are therefore urged to both review this important travel information and to plan their journey on April 25th well in advance.

Travel information is also being sent out to supporters with their match tickets.

CAR PARKING

On-site car parking at stadiummk is for valid pass holders only. Season Car Park Pass Holders at Franklin’s Gardens are currently being sent their passes, which will arrive on their doorstep separately from their match tickets.

A limited number of car parking passes are now on sale on a first come, first served basis here

There are also a limited number of disabled car parking spaces available to book for free, which blue badge holders (who are not Season Car Park Pass Holders) can apply for (albeit with a £1 booking fee) here

Parking in the MK1 Retail and Leisure outlets surrounding stadiummk are for patrons of those establishments only, and will be stewarded on the day. Furthermore, local industrial areas such as Mount Farm and Granby will be for the use of residents and businesses only.

Supporters who do not have car park pass holders should therefore either use the Park and Ride or Park and Walk facilities listed below, or to use coaches from Franklin’s Gardens.

There are a number of drop-off points available for taxis and lifts, but with some road closures in operation supporters need to download a map here

Traffic management measures have been co-ordinated by Milton Keynes Council for the safety of all visitors and supporters.

SUPPORTER COACHES

Season Ticket Holders are still able to book their free coach travel between Franklin’s Gardens and stadiummk.

Coach places are also available for non-Season Ticket Holders, priced at £10 per person.

To book coach places either click here and follow the instructions, or visit the Saints Ticket Office during opening hours.

Coach bookings will finish at close of business on Monday, April 13th.

PARK AND RIDE

A Park and Ride service will be provided at the Open University (sat nav: MK7 6AA). Parking at that location is free, but limited, and can be booked in advance on a first come, first served basis here 

Parking will also be available on the day, subject to availability.

PARK AND WALK

A Park and Walk service will be provided at the Tesco Depot at Fenny Lock, approx. 20-25 minutes’ walk from stadiummk. Parking at this location is free, but limited, and can be booked in advance here 

Parking will also be available on the day, subject to availability.

PUBLIC TRANSPORT AND SHUTTLE BUSES
Supporters travelling by train (either Virgin Trains or London Midland) are recommended to use Central Milton Keynes station and avoid Bletchley as much as possible.

A free shuttle bus service will be in operation from Central Milton Keynes station and shopping areas to stadiummk between 12:15pm and 8pm. All services will drop off on Saxon Street, a short walk from stadiummk, and further details about stops will be available at www.northamptonsaints.co.uk/mk in due course.

Stadiummk has free bicycle parking facilities, and is on the Milton Keynes redway system for pedestrians, who should use marked pathways and underpasses.

TICKET UPDATE

Tickets for the Aviva Premiership clash between the Saints and Saracens are now on general sale through Ticketmaster. Click here and follow the straightforward instructions to book online 24/7.

Hospitality packages are also available for supporters who want to make a special day of it at stadiumMK, including a four-course meal, unique insight from Saints players before and after the match, complimentary house wine, draught beer and soft drinks, and post-match refreshments.

The match on April 25th will also form part of England Rugby 2015’s testing programme, allowing the organisers to test elements of match day delivery at Stadium MK ahead of hosting three Rugby World Cup 2015 matches: France v Canada on Thursday, October 1st; Samoa v Japan on Saturday, October 3rd; and Fiji v Uruguay on Tuesday, October 6th.

Season Ticket Holders’ tickets are currently being processed and will be sent out over the next few days.

If Season Ticket Holders have not received their match tickets by April 13th they should email mk@northamptonsaints.co.uk – but not before then! All other supporters should address their queries to Ticketmaster
