Another big family day at Welford Road

Figure image
Make it a rugby triple-bill on Saturday, November 29 with Leicester Tigers, the Tigers Wheelchair Team and England all in action.

Tigers take on Wasps at 3pm at Welford Road in Round 9 of the Aviva Premiership, a fixture not covered live by any TV channel so the only way to enjoy every second of the action is up close at Welford Road.
Tigers and Wasps encounters are a traditional highlight of the Aviva Premiership calendar and with both teams aiming to be in the shake-up for play-off places and qualification for next season’s European Rugby Champions Cup it promises to be another entertaining, absorbing and hard-fought clash.
The club bars will remain open after the game and Tigers will show full recorded coverage of England versus Australia in the QBE Internationals 'as live' on the screens around the stadium.
Tickets for Tigers versus Wasps are available now. Phone the Tigers ticket office on 0116 319 8888, call in at Welford Road or book online by clicking here.

The plaza in front of the MET-Rx Stand will be taken over by family-friendly attractions including The Maul, the Tigers roadshow vehicle, with fans able to take on the Speed Pass Challenge and record their day at Welford Road in our photo booth.
Land Rover, the official vehicle of Premiership Rugby, will provide free teas and coffees to Land Rover owners on production of their Land Rover key/fob, and will also have their latest vehicle, the Discovery Sport, on display.
Tigers will welcome hundreds of members of the Scouts and Guide Movement and their families to the fixture as part of Scouts Day at Welford Road. The scouts will be active on the MET-Rx Stand plaza, offering fans the chance to join them in fencing with rubber swords and on their rubber band shooting range.
Plus, the Tigers Wheelchair Team are also in action when they face West Coast Crash in a special exhibition match in the hours leading up to kick-off between Tigers and Wasps at Welford Road.

Tigers v Crash is being played at De Montfort University's Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Leisure Centre, just a 20-minute walk from Welford Road, and tip-off is at midday.

This match will last around 90 minutes, giving supporters plenty of time to make their way back to Welford Road in time for the 3pm kick-off against Wasps.

Tigers will also run a free shuttle bus on the day between Welford Road, the car-parking facilities at King Power Stadium and the QE Sports Centre.

Tickets for the wheelchair rugby match are just £5 and all proceeds will go towards supporting the team. Click here to buy.
