Another massive European occasion is in prospect next Sunday when Leicester Tigers and Munster meet at Welford Road. Kick-off is at 5.30pm and tickets are available now.

Munster won the opening duel 33-10 in Limerick on Saturday to take top spot in Pool 4, though just five points separate all four teams with three games remaining.

“It’s going to be a really important weekend,” said Tigers head coach Matt O’Connor.

“The boys are always excited to be playing at Welford Road, they play with a lot of passion at Welford Road and we have to make sure we go there and put out a performance that gets us the result.

“It is a very tight pool with four quality teams and everyone is still in the hunt.”

Tigers beat Munster on home turf last season with a late penalty from Owen Williams proving he difference in a thrilling contest.

Tickets for all home games up to February are available now from the Tigers ticket office, including Sunday’s match against Munster and the Christmas Eve fixture with Saracens (3.00pm).

Book in person at the Tigers Store in Highcross Shopping Centre, phone the ticket office on 0116 319 8888 (option 2) or book online.

Sunday;'s fixture will also host a number of festive activities including Tigers Christmas market, Santa's grotto and choir.
