Welford Road stadium hosts the Under-18 League top-of-the-table fixture between Leicester Tigers and Worcester Warriors next Saturday (January 25).

After league title wins in 2018 and 2019, the Tigers academy team have maintained their unbeaten run in the competition and started this season with four successive wins.

Sam Costelow, Freddie Steward and Cameron Jordan are among the players who have come through the title-winning Under-18 League squad to play senior rugby with the Tigers in recent seasons.

Worcester Warriors are seven points behind league leaders Tigers – and have played one game fewer – going into this penultimate round of the programme.

Admission to next Saturday’s game is free – but you will need a ticket to gain entry – with all supporters accommodated in the Holland & Barrett Stand. All season ticket cards will work at the turnstiles. For all other supporters, click here to download up to four tickets or collect at the ticket office on your way to the game.

Gates open at 11.00am (using turnstiles 1-4), with kick-off at noon. There will be some Junior Tiger Club activities for young supporters in the concourse, and the bar will be open along with a food kiosk serving pies, sausage rolls and hot dogs.

Car parking is available on a first-come, first-served basis in the Crumbie car park on the South side of the stadium.
