Christmas is coming to Welford Road

Figure image
It's starting to feel a lot like Christmas at Tigers as Welford Road prepares for a busy December with a crucial Heineken Cup fixture, our annual festive market, the JTC pantomime and Christmas dinner with some of our players.

Europe’s Heineken Cup returns to Welford Road on Sunday, December 9 (kick-off 3pm) when Pro 12 side Benetton Treviso make the trip from Italy. Pool 2 is already shaping up to be a tight group and the clash could have a huge bearing on qualification for the quarter-finals.

The entertainment starts at 11am on the plaza in front of the Caterpillar Stand with market stalls, activities and a visit from Santa Claus. Browse Christmas gift and card stalls or enjoy carols by Burton Choristers of the Loughborough Endowed Schools.

The Junior Tigers Club VIP Area opens from midday until kick-off and members will be able to take part in arts and crafts and make Christmas decorations.

JTC members with a match ticket to the Treviso game will be able to join in the post-match fun in the Underwwods Suite with our Christmas pantomime Puss In Boots. Tickets for the pantomime are limited and priced £5. They are available from the Welford Road ticket office, on 0844 856 1880 or online

Supporters can join Marcos Ayerza, Dan Bowden, Martin Castrogiovanni, Louis Deacon and Julian Salvi for the Try Tuesdays International Christmas Dinner on December 11.

This popular night features a three-course meal, as well as interviews with the players about rugby, their lives away from the pitch and we'll be having some Christmas fun along the way.

Ticket prices have been held at last year's price of £40, with a £5 discount per ticket for Season Ticket Holders. Dress code is smart.
