Fans invited to ‘mix it with the new guys’

Leicester Tigers supporters are invited to meet the newest Tigers in town as the popular cocktail evening returns for a second year at Welford Road.

Summer signings Noel Reid, Calum Green, Hanro Liebenberg and Jordan Coghlan will all make their first start in a Tigers shirt as rugby returns to Welford Road for the first home match of the season this Friday.

And on Tuesday, October 1, you can meet the lads in person and find out just what it is like to walk out onto the hallowed pitch.

The evening will see the Clubhouse Suite at Welford Road transformed to host a cocktail evening, providing guests and the Tigers ‘newbies’ an opportunity to introduce themselves and try their hand at mixology, courtesy of our partner Burleigh's Gin.

Kicking off at 6.00pm, you’ll take part in a Burleigh's mixologist masterclass as well as enjoy a delicious food buffet before mingling with the players before a Q&A later in the evening.

The full list of players attending the evening includes;

  • Iferemi Bolodau
  • Jordan Coghlan
  • Calum Green
  • Nephi Leatigaga
  • Hanro Liebenberg
  • Noel Reid
  • Jaco Taute
  • EW Viljoen
  • Johnny McPhilips
  • Joe Thomas

Tigers Academy graduates Jack van Poortvliet – who made his senior debut against Worcester in the first round of this season’s Premiership Rugby Cup – and James Whitcombe will also be attending the event alongside head coach Geordan Murphy.

Tickets cost just £30 for season ticket holders and Tigers members, and £34 for all other supporters.
