Let's hear it for the Tigers this Saturday!

The Tigers Family are encouraged to make themselves seen and heard at the Ricoh Arena on Saturday when Wasps host Leicester Tigers in a vital Aviva Premiership fixture.Tigers supporters will travel in large numbers for the short trip to Coventry and a first-ever visit to Wasps’ new home.   Wear your Tigers colours with pride, bring your flags, and don’t forget your singing voices. Kick-off is at 3.15pm and this match is already confirmed as a sell-out.   The Tigers Away Supporters Club coaches drop off at Car Park C and will be met by Welford the mascot for a parade up to the stadium at 1.15pm.   Alternatively, supporters can meet in the Fan Zone from 1pm where we will have Tigers giveaways. Look for us under the giant Tigers flags!   “It is a huge game for both teams,” said Tigers director of rugby Richard Cockerill. “We need a win, Wasps need a win. It makes it very interesting.   “It’s great to know the supporters are going in such large numbers – we need that kind of backing. The effort they bring hopefully can be reflected by the team on the field.”   Tigers will wear the club’s alternate orange kit for Saturday’s match.   If you are not travelling to the game, there is live television coverage with BT Sport, or you can keep up to date with Tigers social media outlets and the club website. Team news from both camps for Saturday's game will be announced at noon on Friday.
