Southampton to show Play-Off final at St Mary’s Stadium

On Sunday, Southampton will take on Leeds for a place in the Premier League after both club's came through their respective semi-finals. In many ways, it's the ‘right' final in the sense that Leeds and Southampton finished 3rd and 4th respectively and have looked like Premier League outfits at various times this season.

While all Southampton tickets for the Play-Off final sold out in a matter of hours, the club are providing Saints fans with the opportunity to watch the match with like-minded supporters at the club's stadium, St Mary's.

Fans are able to purchase tickets to watch the Wembley showdown at the Saints Bar inside the St Mary's Stadium for just £5 via the club's official website. The Bar will open at 1pm, meaning fans can enjoy a few drinks in the build-up to the match before the action gets underway at 3pm.

Food and drink will be served throughout the day and the game will be shown on multiple screens around the bar. The bar will then remain open for an hour after the match finishes so fans can enjoy a celebratory drink or two should the Saints come out on top. The club have warned that tickets must be bought in advance.

Southampton fans can't wait for the Play-Off final

Regardless of whether they are travelling to Wembley to watch the match or are planning on watching it elsewhere, Southampton fans are counting down the hours until Sunday. For both clubs, it is a chance to bounce straight back to the Premier League following relegation last season.

Ahead of the match, one Southampton fan posted on social media: “Is anyone else finding this Friday unbearable? Can't concentrate. Bring on Sunday!”


Another added: “Imperative that we bring the same energy to Sunday that we did on Friday. We have to drown out the Leeds fans for the entire 2+ hours we’re in the stadium. We set the tone last week… we now have to deliver that same magnitude again. No excuses!”

A third posted: “Can't wait for Sunday. I genuinely think if the team defends well we win. Repeat of the organisation and structure we had at Elland Road please lads.”
