Matchday guide | Tigers play behind closed doors

Leicester Tigers host Bath Rugby in Round 15 of the Gallagher Premiership season on Saturday in the second week of the season’s restart following the coronavirus shutdown.

The stadium is closed to supporters as all fixtures are currently being played behind closed doors to help prevent the spread of the virus.

Supporters are urged to not visit the stadium on matchday as the club is working extremely hard to make the event a safe one for all and then hopefully welcome crowds back as soon as possible.

The club shop and ticket office also remain closed to visitors. Services are available online.

Kick-off on Saturday is at 4.30pm and there is full live coverage on BT Sport.

Tigers season ticket holders who do not have a BT Sport subscription can obtain a free BT Sport Match Pass to follow all the action. Please note you will have to register ahead of matchday and will then receive your match code before kick-off. Click here for details.

The Tigers matchday programme will be available in digital form – and free to season ticket holders – with an introduction to the squad’s newcomers, the words of Geordan Murphy, chairman Peter Tom and chief executive Andrea Pinchen, and checklist on the visitors’ squad.

Ahead of kick-off, the teams will line up to remember those who have died during the COVID-19 pandemic as well as the Tigers past players who have passed away since our last home game. During the silence, tribute will also be paid to the incredible work done by the NHS and the country’s key workers.

The referee will then blow the whistle for Premiership Rugby to give clubs and players time to show respect for Black Lives and Racial Equality. Tigers are proud to support Premiership Rugby’s Rugby Against Racism initiative.

Supporters can keep up to date with the game on the Tigers Matchday Live service on the app, or on the club’s social media channels.

Voting opens at half-time for the LeoVegas Fans’ Favourite using the Tigers App. Simply click on the tab in the Tigers App during the second half and the winner will be announced at full-time.

The match report will appear on the club website at the final whistle, with full post-match reaction from coaches and players to follow.

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.
