Saints are set to launch their new look matchday magazine at St Mary’s on Saturday.

The club won the Premier League’s best programme award last season, but have not rested on their laurels.

Though the long standing cover price has seen a small increase to £4, Saints have bumped up the content by 50 per cent to 84 pages for every home match.

Saints have also made the programme easier to find and buy, following feedback from supporters, with a range of new selling booths dotted around in and around the stadium.

Fans will also be able to purchase their magazine in advance of the game from a brand new online store, with the first two editions – Bayer Leverkusen and West Bromwich Albion – available to pre-order now with free postage and packaging. Seasonal subscriptions are available too, priced at £85 including P&P.

That'll be 50 per cent more adverts in it then.
I did like the move last season to scrub up the program sellers tho, out with the old fat guys and girls, in with the pretty ladies - definitely a good business move.

'Best programme award' - LOL, this must be one from the official site. I thought you'd never beat the LED lights for a big news story.

Nice looking magazine though, I like.

Nice looking but is there really any more content, or are we paying more for even more adds ?

Can we have a return to the Programme Stands/Kiosks, but keep the girls though.

£4-00 for something I always buy but rarely give more than a passing glance too. Since when has 25% been a small increase? Just catching up with most of the others though.

@Brite Spark @NC Fan4Life

You will find 50% more content does not mean adverts but instead articles to read.

I apologise that my comments are not connected to the new Program but I've just watched and listened to 4 minute of The Deceitful One speaking in English on BBC Sport, it is the first time I have heard him speak in English, I strongly advise those who want to watch and listen to have a sick bucket near to engross this Liars and be prepared to vomit how he deceived his previous Employer and the Supporters. His English is no worse than Man Cities Pelligrino (sorrry if it's spelt wrong) he was asked why he waited until joining Spurs to speak in English, his explanation is inexcusable, this man is proving to be a very nasty insincere person and has done Southampton Football Club a massive favour and proves he is not indispensable and will soon be forgotten for his insincerity, his horrible personality is difficult to comprehend and also proves looks are only skin deep, I've never known any Premiership Manager like him since the Premiership began he disgust me.

Just watched it as well. Think he needs to get his translator back pronto. Whatever he was struggling to say, it all sounded b*ll*cks to me!
