Tickets for home matches in the opening rounds of league and cup action go on sale at the Leicester Tigers ticket office from this Thursday (July 19).
It is now club policy to issue tickets for home games wherever possible only after kick-off dates and times have been confirmed. Following the release of the Gallagher Premiership fixture list and the new-look Premiership Rugby Cup programme, games in the opening phase of the season will be released for sale this week.
Tigers’ first home game of the league campaign is against Newcastle Falcons on Saturday, September 8 (3.00pm) – when the club also hosts the annual Tigers In The Park activities for supporters – and there are further Welford Road fixtures against Worcester Warriors, Sale Sharks and Saracens in the opening rounds.
Worcester Warriors and Sale Sharks are also visitors in the pool stages of the Premiership Rugby Cup in November.
Tickets for these six home games go on sale at the Tigers ticket office on Thursday, July 19 to Tigers season ticket holders requiring extra tickets for friends and family, and to members before general sales open to all other supporters a day later.
