Friday 14 July 2023 Written by: Adam

Making their first ever trip to Dillingham Park for a 3pm kick-off, the Falcons’ first home game follows on Friday September 15 when Bedford Blues are the visitors to Kingston Park Stadium (7.45pm).

Sale Sharks visit Newcastle a week later with another 7.45pm kick-off on Friday September 22, before the Falcons travel to Leicester Tigers.

The 3pm kick-off on Saturday September 30 sees the Falcons looking for a repeat of last season’s Premiership Rugby Cup result at Mattioli Woods Welford Road, when a last-minute converted try delivered a 32-31 triumph.

The group campaign comes to a climax on Sunday October 8 when Caldy make their first ever visit to Kingston Park, lining up for a 2.15pm kick-off.

Newcastle Falcons season ticket holders who book their package before close of business on Tuesday July 18 will receive entry into the Bedford Blues and Sale Sharks games.
