This Saturday, 24 August, the Falcons take on Connacht live at Kingston Park.

The match, which kicks off at 3pm will be the only pre-season friendly fixture to be played at Kingston Park before the start of the Aviva Premiership season in just over two weeks.

Further to earlier communications the decision has now been taken to open the South Stand for Saturday’s game. Please note that South Stand Season Ticket Holders will still need to bring their re-issued West Stand tickets for this game, but will be able to stand in the South Stand terrace if preferred.

Saturday’s match will also include the Falcons’ inaugural Rugby Retail festival, which offers fans and players the opportunity to buy rugby equipment and merchandise direct from a number of top quality brands. Click here for more information.

Tickets for this fixture can still be purchased online, via the Falcons 24 hour ticket hotline on 0871 226 6060 or in person from the Kingston Park club shop. As a reminder to Season Ticket Holders, this fixture is included in your Season Ticket package for 2013-14.

If you are considering buying a Falcons Season Ticket for 2013-14 but haven’t yet taken the plunge, remember that match tickets for this game can be redeemed against the price of a Season Ticket as part of our Try Before You Buy Scheme.
