Help fund a video which will capture this amazing performance for everyone to enjoy
The Twelfth Player takes place in the real world and on screen – blending performance and a mobile phone app, placing the audience right in the heart of the action. Fermynwoods is raising money to fund a film that will celebrate and document this incredible project.
The last performance at Sixfields is on 12 July, after which time the interactive live experience will have run its course. In order to document the amazing drama that takes place on and off screen we need your help.

More Information About The Twelfth Player
From 22nd June - 11th July
Location: Sixfields Stadium, Northampton
The performance highlights the most dramatic and euphoric Season in the Cobblers’ long and colourful history. In the dark days of November 2015, the Club was deep in trouble. Staff and players were not getting paid, and Administration was a very real possibility. But through the dedication of their extraordinary fans – the team’s twelfth player – they made an amazing recovery, welcoming a remarkable takeover, bouncing back into League 1 and winning the Club’s first League title for 29 years.
During this extraordinary time, Sophie Jump and Susanne Thomas (Seven Sisters Group) researched the Club’s history and met some of the individuals who defined it, from staff and fans, to the volunteer mascot “Clarence”.
This Summer, audiences will get a special opportunity to go behind the scenes on a 40 minute walking tour around Sixfields Stadium itself and through the past seventy years of the Club’s history, viewing the passionate world of football through the eyes of three generations of a family of Cobblers supporters. The performances are site-specific (designed specially with NTFC and its fans in mind) and directed by artists Seven Sisters Group. The Twelfth Player represents a unique collaboration between Fermynwoods Contemporary Art, Royal & Derngate and Northampton Town Football Club.
