The new Gallagher Premiership season starts with an absolute cracker at Kingston Park Stadium on Sunday September 2 when Newcastle Falcons host champions Saracens.
The 3pm kick-off sees the Falcons looking to build on last season's best league finish in 20 years, Dean Richards' men having finished fourth in the table.
Quality new signings have been added to a squad which has retained the bulk of its core talent, and the trend of rising home crowds has continued with encouraging early sales for the season opener.
Fewer than 500 seated tickets remain on sale going into match week, with supporters wanting seats urged to act quickly to avoid missing out.
