Prima Tiger Cup

The Lichfield team had a great day out, they played great rugby. It was extremely well run and a very enjoyable day!

Prima Tiger Cup

Follow in the footsteps of Tigers stars and be a part of the Prima Tiger Cup.

Each year, we invite U10 mini rugby teams from around the UK take part in a series of festivals to celebrate the true ethos of rugby’s core values.

Throughout the duration of these festivals the Tigers will be looking to identify clubs who demonstrate the teamwork, discipline and sportsmanship of the game under our event criteria in keeping with RFU Age Grade Regulations and guidelines.

  • Diss RFC - Sunday October 1, 2017.
  • Lutterworth RFC - Sunday 8 October, 2017.
  • Tamworth RFC - Sunday 22 October, 2017.
  • Mellish RFC - Sunday 29 October, 2017.

Selected clubs from each festival are then invited back to take part in a series of games to be held at a later date at the Tigers famous Welford Road, providing a fantastic experience to all young and aspiring players.

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

Get involved

We welcome entries from all U10s teams but please note, places are limited. To register your interest in the next Prima Tiger Cup and for any further enquiries, please email primatigercup@tigers.co.uk or download the entry form.

In keeping with the adoption of new rules within mini rugby and in celebration of clubs that truly represent the values and ethos of our sport, the Prima Tiger Cup changed its’ focus in the 2016/2017 season to evaluate participating clubs across a range of fair play criteria. Performance and behaviour on and off the pitch was evaluated by the Tigers Community Team to establish the Clubs worthy of note at festivals held at local junior clubs and Tigers Welford Road Stadium. Those clubs that excelled across all areas of the principles of Rugby were invited to a “Celebration Day” at Leicester Tigers and highlighted as Prima Champions for that Season.

Season 2016/2017 Prima Champions

Cup – Stamford RFC & Nottingham Corsairs.
Bowl – Southwold & Kenilworth.
Shield – Bournville & Oakham.
