Our pre season friendly away to Northampton Saints has been confirmed for 2.30pm on Saturday 23 August…

The city of Northampton will be familiar to a number of Leinster supporters after our visit there last season during the pool stages of the Heineken Cup.

Getting there
For those wanting to head to the pre season friendly in August, the closest airport is London Luton (served by Ryanair). Given the early afternoon kick off time, same day return flights are available and the OLSC is calling for expressions of interest for a special airport bus to coincide with the Saturday morning flight in to Luton and flying back to Dublin on Saturday evening.

If you have booked flights and would be interested in such a service, please send your name and party size to olsc@leinsterrugby.ie 

Should this not be possible, supporters will need to to take a train (bus transfer required to the station), book a rental car or use a public bus service (we’ll provide details later if required).

Birmingham is another option (served by both Ryanair and Aer Lingus Regional), this airport has a train station under it and direct trains are available to Northampton (in under an hour).


There will be no away allocation for this game, tickets will be on general sale and we’ll advise on this website along with a recommended area to buy in when the details are finalised by Northampton.
