Aviva Premiership Rugby fixture update

Figure image
The match between Leicester Tigers and Worcester Warriors in Aviva Premiership Rugby Round 19 has been confirmed as a 7.45pm kick-off on Friday, March 30.

This match has been included in the live broadcast picks by ESPN for Round 18-20, announced today by Premiership Rugby.

This is the first Tigers home fixture to be moved at the request of broadcasters to a Friday evening this season. The only previous Friday game, against Gloucester during October, was to avoid a fixture clash with neighbours Leicester City who had already altered a number of their games to accommodate Tigers kick-offs.

Tickets for all remaining Aviva Premiership home games – against Newcastle Falcons on Saturday February 25, Gloucester on Saturday March 3, Worcester Warriors on Friday March 30 and Bath Rugby on Saturday May 5 – are available now from the Tigers ticket office.

Home games in the Aviva Premiership regular season programme are included in Tigers season tickets and all match tickets already issued for the Tigers v Worcester fixture remain valid.

Tigers' trip to London Irish in Round 18 is a 3pm kick-off on Sunday, March 25 and the East Midlands derby between Northampton Saints and Leicester Tigers in Round 20 is a 2.15pm kick-off at Franklin's Gardens on April 14, both to be shown live on ESPN.
