Leicester Tigers have four Gallagher Premiership matches coming up this February.
Rugby returned to Mattioli Woods Welford Road for the first time since January 3, in the loss to Sale Sharks on Friday night, and Steve Borthwick’s men will be looking to move forward quickly from the defeat. Take a look through our matchday gallery above.
Tigers host Worcester Warriors on Saturday, February 6 (3.00pm) with just two places separating the teams in the Gallagher Premiership table going into the weekend.
There’s a trip to Twickenham Stoop for the challenge of Harlequins on Saturday, February 13 (4.00pm) and there will be no love lost between the two sides come Valentine’s Day weekend.
Wasps are the visitors on Saturday, February 20 (3.00pm), travelling just 25 miles from their home in Coventry.
It’s a trip down south for Leicester’s final league game of the month against Bristol Bears on the weekend of February 27.
The ‘new’ matchday
With the Tigers stadium still closed to supporters, only a handful of staff and media alongside both teams’ playing and coaching staff are granted access to the games.
Safety remains the priority with social distancing, face-masks and cleaning stations in place throughout the stadium and access for media and staff restricted to certain times.
There are extra guidelines in place for the coaches and players, with teams entering the pitch from separate entrances while the groundstaff and ball team ensure that balls and equipment are correctly sanitised before and after use.
Most notably though, it’s the noise – or lack of it – that is most conspicuous. While the players on the pitch make their voices heard, a rolling maul in the corner isn’t met with massed ranks of Tigers fans adding their encouragement.
Fans can, though, continue to share their support digitally across the club’s website, social channels and app.
Simply send in your #TigersAtHome photos in your club colours and it could be your snap shared with the Tigers Family on matchdays.
