THE excitement may be building ahead of the new Premier League season but Saints fans can get an early football fix every day this week.
New Saints manager Ronald Koeman is expected to splash in excess of £50 million on new signings this summer but while everyone waits for news with bated breath the club is offering the perfect pre-season warm-up.
Southampton Football Club will have a stand in WestQuay shopping centre in the city all this week and will be giving away top prizes every day to fans who pop along for a visit.
Today there’s a chance to get your hands on hospitality tickets worth around £300 so you can enjoy the opening home game against West Brom in luxury.
Two lucky fans will be able to take advantage of top-of-the-range seats in the President’s Suite on August 23 where they will be waited on by the club’s hosting team and watch all the action in ultimate comfort.
And if you stop off at the stand there are also sofas where video game FIFA 2014 is set-up for fans to pick who they want to see in a Saints strip this season.
There’s also an opportunity to catch a glimpse of the new red and white shirt – on sale on July 19 – that potential new stars Dusan Tadic and Graziano Pellè will don next term as Saints aim to bring European football to the city for the first time in more than a decade.
On top of that if you can’t wait to watch Saints in action then you can enjoy the highs of the past five seasons on the big screens. This includes the League One and Championship promotion campaigns that culminated in Saints’ impressive eighth-place finish in the Premier League.
Every day until Sunday there will be more exciting prizes up for grabs, with tomorrow another chance to win four tickets for the pre-season match against German giants Bayer Leverkusen on August 9.
