Matchday guide | European evening for Tigers

Figure image

European club rugby returns to Mattioli Woods Welford Road this Saturday evening (8.00pm) when Leicester Tigers welcome Connacht Rugby.

There will be no supporters in attendance as this is the 15th game to be played behind closed doors at the stadium as a result of the impact of Covid-19.

Live coverage of the game is on BT Sport 3.

Unfortunately the BT Match Pass service for season ticket holders covers home fixtures in the Gallagher Premiership only and is, therefore, not in operation for this game.

You can, though, follow the updates from the action with the club’s Matchday Live service on the Tigers app and website. Make sure you’ve downloaded the most recent app update (Apple 2.11.0 or Android 36) to receive all of the latest news and info every day. 

There will also be build-up throughout the day and reaction afterwards on the Tigers website and social media pages.

We’d love to see your pictures of #TigersAtHome too if you can share using Tigers Twitter, Facebook and Instagram accounts.

Team news from both clubs is announced at noon on Friday on the Tigers website and social media pages, and the big-match preview is published on Saturday morning.

Look out, too, for this week’s virtual matchday mascot and their pre-match message to the players.

A link to the online edition of the programme is distributed to season ticket holders on the day before the game, with the issue loaded on to the website on matchday morning. All of the online editions are available free on the website if you’ve missed any.

This week’s pages include a trip down Memory Lane to the club’s first meetings with each of the Irish provinces, all the facts and stats behind the Tigers and updates from the Community and Foundation teams.

Saturday’s match winners will be at home in the quarter-final next weekend against the winners of the game between Ospreys and Newcastle Falcons. Full details will be announced by tournament organisers EPCR as soon as possible.
