Change to pre-season fixtures

Figure image
The pre-season fixture against Doncaster Knights scheduled for Friday, August 29, has been cancelled and now Leicester Tigers will play only against Cardiff Blues at Welford Road on that date.

The fixture against Cardiff Blues is a 7.30pm kick-off at Welford Road and all previously purchased tickets remain valid.

Match tickets are on general sale now. This fixture is included in all Tigers season tickets.

Tigers director of rugby Richard Cockerill said: “The pre-season programme is prepared in order to have the squad as fit and as fresh as possible for the first week of the new season, with nine months of competitive rugby to follow. With a staggered start to pre-season throughout the squad, including those senior players who have been on international tours, plus a couple of long-term injuries and the risk of aggravating the niggles to other players that can occur at this stage of the year, we will now focus on one game in the final weekend of preparations before the start of the new league season.

“We appreciate this may disappoint some supporters and also the Doncaster players and supporters, but we have taken this action to help in providing the best possible preparation time and recovery periods for players ahead of the opening game of the Aviva Premiership season on September 6 and the start of a long and tough season.”

All tickets previously purchased for the Tigers versus Cardiff Blues fixture remain valid and are still on sale at the Tigers ticket office. Book in person at Welford Road, phone 0844 856 1880 or book online by clicking here.
 
A full refund on tickets is available for any supporters following the cancellation of the Doncaster fixture. Phone the ticket office on 0844 856 1880.
