Prima Tiger Cup

Prima Tiger Cup

Could your team earn the chance to play at Mattioli Woods Welford Road?

The Prima Tiger Cup, supported by Prima Solutions Ltd, enters its 29th season of commitment to junior rugby and Leicester Tigers in 2022/23, making this event even older than the Premiership or the European Cup.

Each year, Leicester Tigers invite Under-10s teams to take part in regional festivals across our community regions, championing the true ethos of rugby union.

Throughout these regional events Tigers champion those clubs – their players, parents, coaches and supporters – who display the core values of rugby (teamwork, respect, enjoyment, discipline and sportsmanship) on and off the pitch.

In keeping with the RFU Age Grade Regulations and guidelinesk, our Fair Play Scoring System rewards positive behaviours and attitudes with the teams who excel at the festivals being invited to take part in a series of games on a later date at the Tigers’ famous Mattioli Woods Welford Road, providing a fantastic experience to all young and aspiring players.

Attracting more than 70 entries each season, the Prima Tiger Cup is the largest and most prestigious single-age playing opportunity in the rugby calendar.
