Matchday guide | Including Remembrance tribute

Leicester Tigers face Sale Sharks at Mattioli Woods Welford Road on Saturday. Our matchday guide contains everything you need to know about your day at the stadium.

This fixture will host the club’s Remembrance Day commemorations ahead of kick-off and all supporters are urged to make their way to their places in the stadium in good time to pay tribute to the fallen.

There is also a chance to enjoy a rugby double this Saturday with live coverage of England versus Australia from Twickenham after the Tigers match.

Remembrance Day 

Before the game, the teams will line up on the pitch and be joined by a pipe and drums band, bugler and guests from the Armed Services as we remember the fallen, including the former Tigers players lost in conflict.

There will be a reading of the Exhortation, a bugler playing the Last Post and a period of silence in honour of those who paid the ultimate sacrifice, followed by playing of Reveille.

Take extra care over hygiene and sanitisation, consider wearing a facemask in areas around other people, and follow directions of signage and stewards regarding entry and exit. You may not be able to enter at your normal turnstile.

If a ball is kicked to you in the team warm-up or in the game, please do not return it direct to the players or to the pitch. Instead, return to the ball boy team or a steward so it can be sanitised.
