Midweek rugby returns to Mattioli Woods Welford Road as Leicester Tigers host Newcastle Falcons in the Premiership Rugby Cup this Wednesday (7.00pm). Our Matchday Guide includes all of the information you need to get the most out of the evening.
This game is included in all Tigers season tickets but please note that ALL supporters will be accommodated in the Yodel Stand or Breedon Stand Terrace. If you have season tickets in any other area, contact to the ticket office to arrange a transfer into a similar category seat.
Match tickets are also available. Book online, phone 0116 319 8888 (option 2) or visit the ticket units on matchday – please allow time to find your turnstile and place in the stadium ahead of kick-off.
All junior season tickets (including Family Tickets) are automatically upgraded to adult tickets for evening games so you can bring friends or family if you think kick-off is too late for young supporters.
If you have any issues with your season ticket or a match ticket booking, call the ticket office ahead of matchday on 0116 319 8888 (option 2).
Stadium turnstiles are open from 6.00pm.
Allow sufficient time to travel to the game ahead of the 7.00pm kick-off and check your ticket to locate the correct turnstile before trying to gain entry. Have your season ticket card, match ticket, print-at-home ticket or ticket on your smartphone ready to allow the easiest possible access.
The club encourages supporters not to bring bags into the stadium in order to help minimise delays and contact due to searches at the turnstiles.
Follow signage and instructions from stewards in the areas closest to the teams in the Breedon Stand and help us to safeguard the welfare of players, officials and supporters by reducing congestion in the tunnel area before and after the game.
Using the Tigers App, you can send photos and messages for the big screens courtesy of club partner Yodel. Simply open the Leicester Tigers app, click ‘Send A Photo’ and select ‘Big Screen’ to submit a photo or message and we will share some of them during the day.
Ahead of kick-off
The main Club Shop in the Beehive Money Stand is open all day. The second shop in the North Stand is also open on matchdays and there are Matchday Essentials booths around the stadium.

Travel and Parking
Tigers matchday bus services are in operation on routes from Loughborough, Market Bosworth, Market Harborough and Oakham.
Places must be booked before matchday. Click here for details.
The stadium runs cashless payments only, including shops, bars, kiosks and programme booths.
Bars and kiosks
Final Whistle in the North Stand is open for early arrivals. The bar on the plaza is also a good meeting place ahead of the game.
Stadium bars use recycled and recyclable plastic cups. There is no deposit paid or collected for cups, hopefully speeding service at the tills.
To help keep a clean stadium and increase our recycling, caterers Levy have generously agreed to give the Leicester Tigers Foundation a 10p donation for every used plastic cup placed in the Mixed Recycling bins around the stadium. This will raise a significant amount more than the previous arrangement as the Foundation will receive 10p for EVERY CUP YOU USE AND RECYCLE.
Hotel Brooklyn next to the stadium is now open for overnight accommodation, food and drink or simply to enjoy on matchdays or any other day. Supporters are offered a discount of 10 per cent on all bedroom and suite bookings, and there are further reductions on food and beverage when guests stay. To take advantage of this offer, email your request direct to [email protected] and staff will create the booking and answer any questions.

Wellbeing and Safety
Please continue to take extra care over hygiene and sanitisation. If a ball is kicked to you in the warm-up or in the game, 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.

Look out for The Ultimate Big Boot, sponsored by De Montfort University, which provides groups of supporters with a test of skill and nerve on the pitch.
Voting to find the Fans’ Favourite opens on the club app and the winner will be announced at the end of the game.
