Welford Road welcomed its biggest-ever European Cup crowd for the Champions Cup Pool 1 fixture between Leicester Tigers and Munster Rugby on Saturday.

A crowd of 24,213 – including a large travelling support from Ireland – produced an atmosphere worthy of a game which went down to the final seconds before Tigers were able to celebrate a 18-16 victory in the final home game before Christmas.
“It was a big rugby occasion with two outstanding sets of fans played in a fantastic atmosphere,” said Tigers director of rugby Richard Cockerill. “It’s what Welford Road is all about.
“Both teams went out there and went for it, games like that are why you want to play in the European Cup.”

Tigers return to home territory for the Aviva Premiership fixture against defending champions Saracens on New Year’s Day. Kick-off is at 3pm and tickets are on sale now. Book in person at Welford Road, phone 0116 319 8888 (option 2)(open 9am-5pm Monday-Saturday) or online by clicking here.
