Leicester Tigers and Northampton Saints renew local rivalries this Saturday and we've got a big day in store for supporters at Welford Road.

East Midlands rivals Tigers and Saints were unbeaten in the first two rounds of the Anglo-Welsh Cup and the third-round meeting on Saturday will be vital for both sides as they chase a place in the semi-finals.
Kick-off is at 3.00pm and Saturday’s game is heading towards a 25,000 sell-out with limited tickets still available at the Tigers ticket office. Book now to avoid disappointment.
The Tigers Club Store and ticket office will be open from 9am.
The Junior Tigers Club, with activities for young supporters and an opportunity to run out in front of a big home crowd as a matchday mascot or Tiger Cub, is open from 1.00pm.
Turnstiles, and all internal bars and food kiosks open at 1.30pm.
Team news from both camps is announced at noon on Friday. Look out for updates on the Tigers club website and social media channels.
Matchday entertainment this Saturday includes the return of the Gabhru Panjab De bhangra drummers and dancers who will be around the stadium as well as running sessions in the Junior Tigers Club.
Half-time entertainment includes The Ultimate Big Boot and we will also reveal the name of the winner in our season ticket holder in the TigersLotto. And this week we have a special edition of Tigers Family Fortunes for two groups of fans on the pitch.
