Leicester Tigers are back on home soil this Saturday when Exeter Chiefs are the visitors in Round 5 of the Aviva Premiership Rugby season. Kick-off is at 2.15pm and tickets are still available.

Tigers have lost just once in the opening four rounds and go into Saturday’s game one point and place better off than the visitors in the league table.

The Tigers Club Store and ticket office are open from 9am, and extra shop points are open around the stadium. Find out how to pre-order your brand new Tigers Euro kit, or choose from a selection of home and alternate kit, training kit, leisurewear and souvenirs.

Turnstiles for the match, and all bars and food kiosks, open at 12.15pm.

Tigers run five bus routes to home games in conjunction with Arriva Bus, departing from Market Harborough, Oakham, Nuneaton, Market Bosworth and Coalville. For more details and this week’s timetable, click here.

Food outlets at Welford Road now include Domino’s Ready 2 Go pizza, Flaming Good Burger, Frank’s New York Street Hot-Dogs, Henry’s Chicken and there is a Hog Roast stand in the Final Whistle.

The Domino’s outlet is located on the top floor of the Caterpillar Stand, and there is a ‘pop up’ unit on the ground floor. Pizza sellers also circulate inside the stadium.

If you bought pizza at Welford Road last Saturday remember to use your money-off voucher to purchase again this week.

The Junior Tigers Club is open from 12.15pm with fun games and activities for members aged under 16. There is also the chance to lead the teams on to the pitch as a matchday mascot or join the Tiger Cubs parade. Find out how in the JTC VIP area in Final Whistle.

The 100-page matchday programme turns the spotlight on hookers George Chuter, Rob Hawkins and Tom Youngs, who are united in thinking they occupy the best position on the pitch. We’ve also got Geordan Murphy’s preview of the match against Maori All Blacks, and updates from the Tigers Development XV and Academy squads.

George Chuter’s Inside Line pages this week include a special message for Argentinian fans and worrying news from Oval Park, and we’ve got Tiger Hunt photos and a special spotlight on Tigers band Rock Bottom. It’s all in the match programme, available around the stadium, price £3.

Match tickets are still available. Phone the Tigers ticket office on 0844 856 1880 or call in at Welford Road (open until 5pm Friday and from 9am Saturday). Or book online any time.

The collection point on matchdays for pre-ordered tickets is outside the ticket office in the corner of the Caterpillar Stand plaza.

After the game supporters can enjoy live music with resident band Rock Bottom in Final Whistle and the ticket office will remain open for home and away ticket sales, including the home match against the Ospreys on October 21 and the visit of the Maori All Blacks on November 13.
