Matchday Information: Saints vs Villarreal

By SFC Media time Fri 29 Jul Saints vs Villarreal

Saints welcome Villarreal to St Mary’s for Saturday's final pre-season friendly, kicking off at 3pm BST. Here’s what to expect on your trip to St Mary’s.

The club is aware that some of our fans experienced disorderly behaviour at St Mary’s during matches last season. It is very important that everyone coming to a match feels safe and the club will issue long-term bans to anyone who engages in this type of behaviour.

If you witness any form of anti-social, abusive or discriminatory behaviour, crime, violence or the use of pyrotechnics, please report it to your nearest steward or police officer. Alternatively, text SFCReport to 60060 with a full description and location of the incident, giving as much detail as you can.

Please be aware that all bags will be searched on entry to St Mary’s, so only bring an A4-sized bag if you need to.

Fans are advised to arrive to the ground early, to give ample time to get through security checks, turnstiles and make their way to their seat.



Tickets are available to purchase on matchday at the ticket office situated at St Mary’s.


Get kitted out with the new home and away kit available to purchase in-store. Season ticket holders get 10% off!


Sammy and Mary Saint will be meeting fans and posing for photographs in our Mascot Zone, located on the corner of the Kingsland and Chapel stands.


Saints Brass are bringing the party atmosphere and providing your matchday soundtrack, playing family favourites ahead of the game - don’t miss their pre-match rendition of Oh When The Saints.


We’ll have some different activations on offer in the Kingsland area. Pop by and try your luck at our scanning challenge (blaze pod lights ) and Football flick skill challenge zone.


Fans with car parking at the stadium are advised that there will be no vehicle movement permitted in the car parks or within the road closure area from one hour ahead of kick-off, and until the crowd is cleared from the stadium.



You can pick up official Saints merchandise from hummel retail booths situated in the concourse of the Northam and Chapel stands – remember, Season Ticket holders get 10 per cent off!


Food and drink will be available to purchase in the concourses. We’ve listened to your comments and will be trialling new pie flavours Steak and Sweet Potato, Chicken & Mushroom and Vegan Sweet Potato pasties! Please do let us know what you think!


Please be aware that St Mary’s is now a cashless stadium so make sure you bring an alternative payment method for any purchases at the stadium on matchdays.


This season you’ll find reusable pint cups in the St Mary's concourses and the Fanzone in a bid to reduce single-use plastics - when you’ve finished with yours, please place it inside so they can be collected after each match, washed thoroughly and recirculated.
