Saracens have confirmed the details of their nomadic 2012-13 season, announcing fixtures in Bedford, Barnet and Watford in the coming months.
The club has agreed a move away from Vicarage Road - their long-term home under an agreement with Watford Football Club - to Allianz Park in Barnet, although they must wait until January to take the field at their new home.
Prior to that, they will play an LV= Cup match with Leicester Tigers at Bedford's Goldington Road on November 9, and two Heineken Cup games - against Munster and Edinburgh - at Vicarage Road.
"Goldington Road is a traditional rugby ground that we know well from recent pre-season friendlies, and we look forward to taking on the Tigers in a venue that will provide a fantastic atmosphere," director of rugby Mark McCall said.
On January 27 they face Cardiff Blues in Anglo-Welsh competition, with that match forming part of a test event at Allianz Park - with capacity limited to 6,000.
