“This was always going to be a very tight pool and we need a big performance from the team and the crowd right behind us,” says Tigers director of rugby Richard Cockerill.
We’re also hosting a Christmas Market outside the Caterpillar Stand, with seasonal stalls, a free Santa’s grotto, carol-singers and brass band. The market is open from 10am, with Santa welcoming young supporters from 11am.
The market area will also include a Tigers Club Shop marquee, offering a full range of replica kits, souvenirs and merchandise, as well as shirt printing so you can personalise Christmas gifts for any Tigers fan.
Season ticket holders can pick up a copy of the Tigers Official Yearbook on production of their season ticket card from our stall in the Christmas market.
The Final Whistle bar is open from 11.30am – ask about the meal deals – and there are activities for Junior Tigers Club members in the clubroom in the Goldsmiths Stand from 1pm. Membership of the Junior Tigers Club is free for under 16s, and you can register online via the club website at www.leicestertigers.com/jtc
European Rugby Cup chairman Jean-Pierre Lux is attending Sunday’s game and will make a special pre-match presentation to Tigers in recognition of reaching 100 Heineken Cup matches.
We’ll be announcing the winner of the Goldsmiths Player of the Month award for November and at half-time supporters can join the Burton Choristers of Loughborough Endowed Schools for some Christmas carol-singing.
Join us for a festive family day out. Enjoy the entertainment and get right behind the team.
