Lock Saturday 23 February into your diaries as the Saints return to the hallowed turf at RSEA Park for an intra-club clash.

Hundreds of St Kilda supporters are expected to assemble at RSEA Park on Saturday February 23, where the Saints will put the final touches on a gruelling pre-season campaign.

Parking is limited to street parking surrounding the ground, with fans encouraged to catch public transport. 

A special march is also being organised to mark the occasion, with fans to assemble at Moorabbin Station at 9am before walking to the Saints' spiritual home just a few blocks away.

EVENT: RSVP to the official Facebook event here

Split into two teams, the Saints will play four quarters from 10:30am, a week-out from the first JLT Community Series clash with North Melbourne.

A willing contest is expected with competition for spots at an all-time high given the increased depth at Linton Street.

The addition of Dan Hannebery and Dean Kent, along with four mature-age recruits, has given Alan Richardson and his new coaching itinerants a range of options heading into Round 1.

Fans will get their first glimpse of the likes of Nicholas Hind, Matty Parker, Robbie Young and Cal Wilkie.

The event will also provide fans the opportunity to see the playing group presented with their jumpers for Season 2019.

A host of activities for all-ages will keep fans entertained prior to the game, so bring the family down an enjoy the action.

These include:

    • 2019 Jumper Presentation
    • Autograph opportunities
    • Food trucks
    • Dare Iced Coffee giveaways
    • Social Club BBQs
    • Photo Booth
    • Live music from DJ Baitz
    • Wellness Area
    • Pepper Money face-painting
    • AFL inflatables
    • Shanghai 2019 information

The brand new Saints Locker shop inside RSEA Park will also be open for business from 9am, with the latest range of merchandise available. Along with that, the Saints Merch Truck will also be open from 9am and located out the front of RSEA Park with a range of deals on discontinued merchandise.
