Saracens Information

Saracens are based in Hendon, Greater London. The name of their home ground is the Copthall Stadium, which is now known as the StoneX Stadium due to a sponsorship deal. The club started in Enfield but didn’t settle into a long-term permanent home before going to Bramley Road, Southgate in 1939.

A stay at Vicarage Road, ground sharing with the Watford football club started for them in 1997 and lasted for 15 years before they were able to move to Copthall. Copthall has the smallest capacity of all Premiership team stadiums at around 10,000. Saracens play in a mostly black kit.

Saracens History

Saracens did win the Courage League Division 2 a couple of times during their early professional years and spent five seasons in Division One. They played in the 1997/98 inaugural season of the Premiership, in which Saracens finished as a runner-up.

Just a couple of years before, Saracens had received huge financial backing from Nigel Wray and the club started to attract some world stars to the club. The first Saracens Premiership title came in 2011, where they beat the Leicester Tigers in the final.

They would wait just another four years for their second title in 2015. The Saracens Premiership title count rapidly picked up as they won the Premiership title four times over a span of five seasons, dominating not only England, but Europe as well, as the club claimed three Champions Cup titles.

In the 2019/20 season, Saracens were relegated after being handed a 105-point penalty for reported salary cap infringements. Saracens won the 2020/21 Championship to restore their Premiership status.

Famous players to have worn the Saracens jersey include Michael Lynagh, Philippe Sella, Francois Pienaar, Billy Vunipola, Richard Hill, Owen Farrell and Maro Itoje.
