The reasons why it's on the away shirt are explained in the FAQ section...
Why will the names of Season Ticket Holders be on the 2021/22 shirt, rather than the 2020/21 version?
The 2020/21 home and away jerseys are already midway through production, meaning the earliest the Club can place the names of donators on the away jersey is for the 2021/22 season.

How will the names appear on the 2021/22 shirt?
All names submitted by those who donate will be sublimated into the fabric of the 2021/22 away jersey. This jersey will be worn by Northampton Saints for away matches and available for supporters to purchase.

Why will the names of Season Ticket Holders be on the away shirt, rather than the home?
The Club’s recent ‘King of the Kits’ competition made it clear that Northampton supporters love watching Saints play in traditional, hooped jerseys. In order to commit to placing names of supporters on the Club’s home jersey, we would have put a traditional, hooped design in jeopardy. This was not an acceptable option, so the names of Season Ticket Holders who donate will instead appear on the away jersey in 2021/22, and Saints will take those supporters with them in spirit as they compete on the road.

There is another reason why the away shirt is better.
The shirts are now printed using a dye sublimation method, that's why there's nothing embroidered or stuck on any more (apart from the badge). To have these names on the home shirt with standard GBB colours the names would probably have to be white or another lighter colour, so the home shirt would appear almost colourless with all the names I expect will be on there. Using a light grey colour for the away kit allows the names to be printed without changing the overall colour too much.
