Book for Stade showdown now

Figure image
With just three weeks to go until the Heineken Cup quarter-final tie between Leicester Tigers and Stade Francais, tickets are now on general sale to supporters.

The French glamour boys are due at Welford Road on Sunday, April 1 (kick-off 3.30pm) and Tigers would love to have a full house right behind them for the biggest home game of the season.

Whether you are a season ticket holder, Guinness season ticket holder, club member, regular supporter or one who would love to get to Welford Road more often during the season, this is an occasion not to be missed.

Leicester's European rivalry with Stade goes back a long way and includes the famous final victory in 2001, when a late converted try sealed the silverware for Tigers in the Parc des Princes stadium in Paris. The sides have clashed several times since, including in last season's competition when honours went to the home team in both games. Late tries from Louis Deacon and Dan Hipkiss raised the roof at Welford Road as both sides chased qualification from the pool stages.

The prize for the winners this time is a semi-final in their home country against Llanelli Scarlets or defending European champions Munster - and the prospect of being just 80 minutes away from the Heineken Cup Final at Twickenham.

If you have not got a ticket yet, do not delay. They can be purchased in person from the Welford Road ticket office, by calling 08701 28 34 30 or by going online at the club website www.leicestertigers.com

There is no restriction on the number of tickets available to each supporter, subject to availability.
