Match day at the Rec - Northampton Saints

7 November 2019

We're two days away from match day at the Rec, and here is the latest information ahead of the game, which sees Bath Rugby take on Northampton Saints in the Gallagher Premiership. 


Having been phased in at the end of the 2018/19 season, all Bath Rugby bars and concession stands on the outfield will no longer accept cash payments.

The move to cash-free is designed to speed up transactions and reduce queuing times to ensure that supporters have less time away from the game.

The Rec will be able to process all major contactless debit and credit card, with chip and pin applying to all purchases over £30. Bars and food outlets will also accept Google Pay and Apple Pay.

Make your experience even quicker by downloading the Tap and Go app available to download on Apple and Android. Search “Tap and Go at Bath Rugby”.


There are still a limited number of tickets available for Saturday's game by clicking here, or calling the Ticket Office on 01225 536 900. 


There will be a Season Ticket Holder Q&A taking place on the outfield at 14:00 with Chief Executive Tarquin McDonald, Nathan Catt and Pathway Coach Ryan Davis. For more information, click here. 


Amongst an array of food outlets at the Rec, there is a new vegan stand ‘Have a pinch,’ so make sure you take advantage of the many options available to you ahead of kick-off. Clifton Sausage also offer a vegan option.


Supporters travelling to the game are encouraged to use the Park and Ride, with the last buses running back at 20:30.

Bath Rugby is working towards being single-use plastic free on a matchday. As part of this commitment, bars and concessions will no longer be selling plastic bottles. There are refill stations located in the four corners of the ground to refill your bottes at the Rec.

Bath Rugby branded reusable bottles will be sold at every bar at the Rec for £5.


The cold weather is starting to kick in, so make sure you’re wrapped up nice and warm for the game. Get your hands on the latest Bath Rugby hats, scarves and hoodies, as well as the latest 1865 collection available in store or at the merchandise stand at the Rec.
