The opening month also features a trip to London Wasps and a home game against Neil Back’s Leeds Carnegie, while Tigers face last season’s finalists Saracens away in round five.
Bath Rugby – including summer signings Lewis Moody and Sam Vesty – are due in Leicester on October 23 in their first appearance at Welford Road since last season’s Guinness Premiership semi-final.
The Christmas period features a home game against Sale Sharks and Tigers conclude the league programme with a home date against London Irish.
Fixtures for the Anglo-Welsh LV= Cup are to be confirmed, while dates and times for the Heineken Cup, in which Tigers have been drawn with the Scarlets, Perpignan and Benetton Treviso, will be confirmed soon.
Tigers’ preferred kick-off time for home fixtures is Saturday afternoon, though fixtures are subject to alteration at this stage. All fixtures are on the 'weekend of' the Saturday date shown as host clubs will confirm their matchdays as quickly as possible and television schedules are still to be confirmed.
