Saints as One campaign

These are challenging times for everyone, and here at Southampton Football Club we want to make sure we do our part in supporting the community.

That is why, together with Saints Foundation, we are proud to be running the Saints As One campaign – an outreach and engagement initiative designed to help fans and members of society who find themselves isolated and vulnerable as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, as well as educating, uniting and entertaining the Southampton family as a whole.
