Welford Road hosts non-stop rugby this Saturday with live TV coverage of the RBS 6 Nations, two under-10s cup finals and then Leicester Tigers against Saracens in a top-of-the-table encounter in the Aviva Premiership.

Visitors Saracens are in second place in the Aviva Premiership table, with Tigers just one place and one point behind, going into this Round 16 fixture which is a repeat of the 2010 and 2011 Premiership Finals and last season’s semi-final.

Kick-off is at 8pm.

Before that you can follow the intenational action as Martin Castrogiovanni captains Italy against Wales in the RBS 6 Nations at 2.30pm, then seven Tigers players are in the England squad for an eagerly-anticipated match against France at 5pm.

Both games will be shown live on a big screen in the Final Whistle in the Caterpillar Stand.

Bars and food kiosks in the rest of the stadium and the turnstiles open at 6pm, with TV coverage of the England match continuing in the bars and public areas.

The finals of the Prima Tiger Cup and Prima Tiger Bowl, featuring under-10s teams from Kenilworth, Newmarket, Tamworth and Wymondham will be played on the Welford Road pitch from 4pm.

The Junior Tigers Club VIP Area in Final Whistle has special extended opening hours this Saturday (2.00pm-7.45pm) with games and activities for young supporters as well as the Crusha Milkshake bar and a draw for one lucky JTC member to help lead out the teams as a matchday mascot.

The Tigers Club Store is open all day and there are extra shop units inside the stadium.

Pick up a copy of the 100-page matchday programme for your perfect accompaniment to the day, with a special feature on history-makers Matt and Ian ‘Dosser’ Smith, a look at the run-in to the end of the season for all Aviva Premiership clubs and George Chuter’s exclusive Inside Line featuring libraries, fitness regimes and “guaranteed no horse content”!

All five matchday bus services run in conjunction with Arriva will be in operation, from Market Harborough, Oakham, Nuneaton, Market Bosworth and Coalville. For more details and this week’s timetable, click here.

Stay after the match and enjoy live music from resident band Rock Bottom in Final Whistle.

Tickets for Saturday’s game are available now. The ticket office is open until 5pm on Friday and from 9am on matchday. Call in or phone 0844 856 1880. Or book online.

The collection point for pre-ordered tickets is the unit outside the ticket office in the corner of the Caterpillar Stand plaza.

As this is a Saturday Night Special at Welford Road, supporters can upgrade any junior season tickets to adults for free.

This fixture became an 8pm kick-off after selection for live TV broadcast by ESPN, but if you hold season tickets for under-10s or juniors, or for children as part of a Tigers family season ticket, the club will exchange these for adult tickets free of charge so you can enjoy the match with family and friends if kick-off is too late for younger members.

We hope this is another way for the Tigers family to get the most out of their season tickets.

To upgrade a Junior season ticket for this game, please phone the Tigers ticket office. Please note that all upgrades will require the issue of a replacement paper ticket.
