Kick off New Year with the Tigers this Sunday

Figure image
Kick off a new year of Aviva Premiership rugby by joining us for Leicester Tigers against league leaders Saracens at Welford Road on Sunday. Kick-off is at 3pm and tickets are on general sale now.

Tickets have been in big demand for this New Year’s Day fixture against the reigning English and European champions but there is still availability on the terrace and seating areas.
Another 24,000-plus crowd is expected for the opening action of 2017 as Tigers return to home territory.
Saracens were beaten 21-13 on their last visit to Welford Road in March when tries from Freddie Burns and Vereniki Goneva secured the points for Tigers, but won the opening meeting this term 24-10 at Allianz Park in October.
You can book your match ticket now and share in another big rugby occasion at the home of the Tigers.
If you book a Tigers Half Season Ticket covering the last seven home fixtures in the regular season – starting with the European Champions Cup match against Glasgow Warriors on Saturday, January 21 – you will also receive a £10 voucher towards a match ticket for the Saracens game.
