Figure image
Leicester Tigers return to home turf on Saturday for a vital Aviva Premiership fixture against Bristol Rugby. Kick-off is at 3pm. Here is our guide to what the day has in store at Welford Road, including the appearance of Leicester's X Factor winner Sam Bailey.

A bonus-point win over Gloucester last week kept Tigers in the group of teams chasing a place in the top four of the table, while Bristol are looking to close the gap at the foot of the table in the first season back in the top flight.
Match tickets for Saturday remain on general sale at the Tigers ticket office.
The ticket office is open 9am-5pm Monday-Saturday. Book in person at Welford Road or phone 0116 319 8888 (option 2). Or click here to book online any time. There is a print-at-home option for all tickets bought online.

The Junior Tigers Club, with activities for young supporters and an opportunity to run out in front of a big home crowd as a matchday mascot or Tiger Cub, is open from 1.00pm and there will be a player appearance in the approach to kick-off.
Turnstiles, and all internal bars and food kiosks open at 1.30pm.
Supporters can enjoy speciality coffee and handmade doughnuts at 96 Coffee By Numbers in Final Whistle owned by Tom Croft and Ben Youngs. Doughnut flavours change each week and the bar is open throughout the day.
