Leicester Tigers host French visitors Brive in the opening European fixture of this season at Mattioli Woods Welford Road on Friday evening.

This fixture is subject to the government’s Tier 3 restrictions on sporting events and will be played behind closed doors.

Kick-off is at 7.45pm and there is livestream coverage with tournament organisers EPCR, using the website at ChallengeCupRugby.com. Register here to watch FREE coverage.

The game is not scheduled for coverage with BT Sport and there is no access via the BT Match Pass service for season ticket holders which is available only for home fixtures in the Gallagher Premiership.

Supporters can keep up to date with all of the action with the club’s Matchday Live service on the Tigers app, plus posts on the website and social media pages.

Please note that the stadium shop is open during Friday but will be closed ahead of kick-off.

The ticket office will remain closed to visitors but all online services remain available all day every day.

The Tigers match programme is available online for every home game so you can keep in touch wherever you are. This week’s edition features 10 pages on the European Challenge Cup – how it works, form guide to rivals Brive and Bayonne, all the facts and stats, and match previews as well as the views of head coach Steve Borthwick, updates from Community and Foundation, and the Junior Tigers Club page.

A link to the online programme is distributed to season ticket holders on the day before the game, with the edition then made available to all other supporters on the website on matchday. If you’ve missed any issues from previous weekends, they are all available for free on the website.

If you are wearing your club colours, you can share your photos of #TigersAtHome with other supporters on the club’s social media pages until we can all be together again at Welford Road.
