Play on the Pitch
Saints Foundation are once again giving 22 supporters the opportunity of a lifetime, with Play on the Pitch event returning for 2018.
Supporters will get the full player experience, beginning with a first-class training session at Staplewood in April 2018 (date tbc), followed by the main event at St Mary’s Stadium on the afternoon of Monday 21st May 2018.
How to bid
Remaining positions will be auctioned throughout 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 in April 2018 with Club Legends Matt Le Tissier, Franny Benali and Kelvin Davis, 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.
