Figure image
Leicester Tigers host London Irish at Welford Road on Saturday in the final round of Aviva Premiership league action. Kick-off is at 2.30pm and only a limited number of tickets remain on sale.

All six Aviva Premiership fixtures kick off at the same time on Saturday afternoon, with the semi-final line-ups, European positions and final rankings will be known by the final whistle.

This game is not scheduled for live TV coverage so the only place to see all of the action is at Welford Road.

Turnstiles, bars and food kiosks around the Welford Road stadium open at 12.30pm.

Tigers reveal a new home kit this Saturday and you can check it out at the Club Store, which is open all day, and there are extra merchandise units in the Caterpillar Stand when the turnstiles are opened.

Please note that Saturday in the annual reunion of The Droglites, the Tigers past players association, and the Droglites Bar in the Goldsmiths Stand will be open to past players only ahead of kick-off. All other supporters are welcome to use the bar at half-time and after the game.

The Junior Tigers Club area in Final Whistle is open from 12,30pm with games and acitivities organised for young supporters. And don’t forget to visit the Crusha Milkshake bar – you might even meet one of the Tigers players helping to mix the milkshakes and answer your questions about being a professional rugby player.

There is a lucky draw opportunity for young supporters to lead the teams out as a matchday mascot or join the Tigers Club pre-match parade and the chance to meet some of the Tigers players.

The 100-page match programme this week includes interviews with the award winners in the club’s annual awards, including Julian Salvi and Manu Tuilagi. We’ve also got four pages of photos from the Legends match, and George Chuter gets all excited for Star Wars Day in his Inside Line column. The programme is available throughout the stadium, price £3.

All five matchday bus services run in conjunction with Arriva will be in operation, from Market Harborough, Oakham, Nuneaton, Market Bosworth and Coalville. For more details and this week’s timetable, click here.

After the game, there’s no need to rush home with bars open and live music from resident band Rock Bottom in Final Whistle.
