Play on the Pitch event returns for 2018!

By SFC Media Tue 12 Dec Saints Foundation

Saints Foundation are once again giving 22 supporters the opportunity of a lifetime, with their popular Play on the Pitch event returning for 2018.

All positions will be available to Buy It Now (£1500) for a two-day period as of today, with five remaining positions being auction for a seven-day period between Thursday 14th-21st December. Any remaining positions will be auctioned in early 2018, with all proceeds invested into the local community through Saints Foundation’s projects.

Supporters will get the full player experience, beginning with a first-class training session to prepare for the main event on Monday 21st May 2018.

On matchday, players will be welcomed to St Mary’s through the player’s entrance, and directed to the official players’ lounge.

Players will then depart on a tour of St Mary’s Stadium, taking in sights such as the trophy cabinet and honours board, before familiarising themselves with the changing rooms, tunnel and inspecting the hallowed St Mary’s turf.

As the countdown to kick-off approaches, the players will be invited to take to the changing rooms, where they will find personalised, official Southampton FC kits waiting for them.

When the time comes, players will line up against their opposite numbers and walk out onto the same pitch that has been graced by Saints legends such as Matt Le Tissier, Kelvin Davis and Rickie Lambert.

The event will culminate with all players being invited into one of our luxury hospitality suites to round off the experience with post-match drinks and refreshments.

To purchase a Buy It Now position, please email Amy Bennett at stating which position you want to purchase.
