Premiership Rugby side Northampton Saints have unveiled their Away Jersey for the 2021/22 Premiership Rugby season. The Saints have chosen to honour their fans by embedding the names of thousands of loyal supporters in the jersey. The fans in question are those that decided to donate the reaming balance of their 2019/20 Season Ticket back to the Club as part of last summer’s ‘We March Together’ initiative.
Chris Boyd's men will now carry the names of their fans with them, as they go in search of victory on the road. Last season was tough for sports fans everywhere and the anticipation for next season and hopefully the return to stadiums is huge. This is a great way to thank those fans for their generosity and it has created a unique kit, that is different to the usual Saints Away jersey.
Macron are ,once again, the manufacturers of the jersey and the main sponsor will be Travis Perkins. This is the 20th year that Travis Perkins have sponsored Northampton Saints and it would be weird to see the jersey without their logo these days.

Head of Retail at Northampton Saints Will Peasgood:
“We were absolutely blown away by the passionate backing we had from our supporters throughout the pandemic,”
“Adding their names to this season’s kit was the least we could do to say ‘thank you’ to them. We’re really pleased with how it has turned out – seeing it in the flesh is really exciting and we can’t wait to see many of our supporters back in the stands at Franklin’s Gardens wearing their Club colours this coming season.”
Saints Club Co-Captain Alex Waller: “Carrying the names of so many of our supporters onto the pitch with us will be a real inspiration for the players next season.
“We really felt the absence of crowds in the stands last season – I hope we can show our gratitude to them for standing by us every time we wear this special shirt.”
