The Guinness Premiership match against old rivals Bath Rugby (kick-off 3pm) will be the first competitive fixture at Welford Road since Tigers secured an historic league and cup double in 2006/07 and a full house would provide a fitting welcome home for Richard Cockerill's squad.
Games between Tigers and Bath regularly provide some of the best action of the season, with last term's home game going right to the wire, with Leicester gaining a 29-25 victory thanks to an amazing defensive effort in the closing stages.
Tigers, of course, went on to win the EDF Energy Cup and Guinness Premiership with outstanding performances in the finals at Twickenham.
What better way to acknowledge those efforts than to cheer on Tigers for their first home match of the new season.
Tickets to the game are on sale from the Tigers ticket office now, call 08701 28 34 30, book online at www.leicestertigers.com or visit Welford Road.
