Countdown to Varsity Night at Welford Road

Figure image
Welford Road hosts the city's showpiece student sports event on Wednesday, March 26 when Varsity Night returns to the home of the Leicester Tigers.

For one day each year, sports teams from the University of Leicester and De Montfort University play each other to decide the identity of the dominant sporting institute.

Since 2002 the day has concluded in front of a large and noisy crowd at Welford Road for the Varsity rugby matches.

University of Leicester are the defending champions in both the men’s and women’s fixtures and we’re expecting two hotly-contested games again this year.

Tickets are already on sale direct from the Tigers ticket office, price £5 in advance or £7.50 on the night. Call in at Welford Road or phone the ticket office on 0844 856 1880 (option 2).
