Northampton Saints Venue Operational Review

The Challenge: review the operations of the Northampton Saints’ home venue to ensure optimal outcomes are achieved, while at the same time compliance with social distancing and other requirements are not compromised.

The Outcome: a report which included recommendations for the following areas:

  1. Seating allocation  

  2. Ingress and egress management

  3. Food concessions and bars operations

  4. Toilet requirements

  5. Workforce requirements

  6. Other operational area requirements

"DSK Consultants completed a thorough review of the operations at Franklin’s Gardens, home to Northampton Saints, ahead of the possible reopening of the stadium for spectators in the Autumn. DSK worked with our team to make a series of helpful recommendations and draft an implementation plan.

Principally, the recommendations focused on:

  • Optimising our ticketing revenue within the seating bowl 

  • Managing access and egress whilst maintaining social distancing 

  • Operating food concessions and bars, particularly in respect of location and queue management 

  • Managing bathroom facilities and queuing

  • Planning our workforce requirements to ensure social distancing is maintained by the public


We are extremely grateful for DSK Consultants' input. It has been invaluable in ensuring that once we can reopen, we will do so with a seamless operational plan in place."
