Don't miss the season's opening day at Welford Road

Figure image

A new season kicks off at Welford Road next Sunday, when Leicester Tigers face Bath rugby in the opening round of the Aviva Premiership campaign. Match tickets are available now.

Matt O’Connor and the team return to home turf for a match against old rivals Bath with new faces including England duo George Ford and Jonny May, Tongan back-rower Sione Kalamafoni and Irish flanker Dominic Ryan.

the first league fixture of the season provides an opportunity for Ford to face his old club, while Freddie Burns is now in the other camp and could make a quick return to Welford Road after leaving Leicester in the summer.

Throw in international names like Ben Youngs, Manu Tuilagi and Matt Toomua with Leicester, and Bath’s Jonathan Joseph and Anthony Watson, and this promises to provide a top-class start to the season.  

You can book your place now at the Tigers ticket office. Buy in person at Welford Road or phone the ticket hotline on 0116 319 8888 (option 2)(open 9.00am-5.00pm every Monday-Saturday) or online any time.

Next Sunday is also the day of our annual Tigers in the Park fun day with activities and entertainment for the whole family.

Based on Nelson Mandela Park and on the plaza at Welford Road, Tigers in the Park is FREE, with a full programme from 11.30am. See the link for more details.

Season tickets for 2017/18 are also still available, with admission to all home games in the regular league season, the European Champions Cup and Anglo-Welsh Cup plus a list of other benefits.
