Defending Guinness Premiership champions London Wasps come to Welford Road on Friday evening (September 26), followed by local rivals Northampton Saints on Wednesday, October 1, providing a fantastic double header at the home of Leicester Tigers.
Some of Englands top international stars will be in the reckoning for starting places under the Welford Road lights on Friday with Tigers and Wasps providing numerous players for the England Elite Squad this season.
The match should prove a classic with George Chuter, Jordan Crane, Tom Croft, Harry Ellis and Toby Flood among the Tigers players looking to impress the national team management, while the Wasps contingent could include James Haskell, Tom Rees, Ricky Flutey, Paul Sackey and Phil Vickery.
The visit of Northampton five days later will be the first game between the East Midlands rivals since Saints made their return to the Guinness Premiership after spending last season in National League One and the clash provides a mouth-watering prospect for supporters.
As well as providing a highlight for all Tigers fans, these two fixtures present a great opportunity for local rugby players and club officials who are not able to visit Welford Road on Saturdays to watch the Tigers in top Guinness Premiership action.
